Devo 'Total Devo (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)' 2xLP
Back in 1988, when the airwaves were being homogenized by vapid pop, DEVO set about creating their first album in four years. The result was this slice of overt irony, a dance orientated, back to basics, emotionally arch selection - including now classics ‘Baby Doll’ and ‘Disco Dancer’ - that twisted pop on it’s head by imitating in part the very music it mocked. Despite it’s industrial edge and unusual trademark quirk, the joke was so honest at the time that it was inevitably lost, but in the years since heinsight has this serving as a true testament to another of DEVO‘s misunderstood works of art.
This summer, FUTURISMO give every truly discerning DEVO fan the out of print release they’ve been been craving, a very limited edition pressing of Total Devo Deluxe. Each gatefold lp set includes 2x180g limited edition coloured vinyl in the choice of ‘Defcon Disco’, ‘Totally Agitated’ or ‘Happy Sad’ also available is a 2xCD gatefold digipak version. Included alongside the original album are remixes, demos and unheard tracks unearthed from the archives. The records come in a spot laminated gatefold sleeve that shows illustrations and logos when viewed in a certain light, it contains a huge double sided poster with unseen pictures and brand new liner notes by Gerald V. Casale of DEVO. The LP version also contains two collectable photographic postcards!
