Description

For many people in the UK the first view of Devo will have been on the Old Grey Whistle test that popular rock programme broadcast on the BBC. The video for Jocko Homo was broadcast and that in turn drove sales for the B Stiff EP released through the independent record label Stiff records naturally. The band however had a history stretching back to the dawn of the seventies and a connection with the Kent State Shootings at Kent State University Ohio in 1970 where members Gerald Casale and Bob Lewis were students. The concert contained on this release however comes from a radio broadcast recorded just under a year earlier than the Knebworth show at Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco on August 3rd 1977. It is a performance recorded just as the band were beginning to make their way onto the international stage and attracting fans including David Bowie and Iggy Pop. This album includes live radio broadcast versions of the songs Mongoloid, Jocko Homo and many others that would feature on the band’s debut solo album produced by Brian Eno. The early set recorded live in San Francisco 3rd August at Mabuhay Gardens 1977 for Radio Broadcast. This package contains a radio performance of Devo at the Mabuhay Gardens San Francisco in 1977. Includes early staples of Devo’s career including Mongoloid, Jocko Homo and (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction plus many songs featured on the band’s debut album. Rarely Seen Photographs. Liner notes by Broadcaster / Author Jon Kirkman – Presented In Cardboard Gatefold Sleeve.
