Anyone who has read this blog on a regular basis knows that I am a huge Devo fan, to the extent that I wrote a lengthy two-part post on the band and its body of work. The new Devo song, although not quite up to the Empyrean heights of such epics as "Jocko Homo", "Gates of Steel", "Gut Feeling", "Mongoloid", and "Smart Patrol/Mr DNA", is a hoot and a half:
As one can imagine, Jerry Casale is no fan of the J.R. "Bob" Dobbs-like Romney, but he's not exactly enthusiastic about President Obama. Yeah, don't expect a guy who was so traumatized by the Kent State shootings that he and his friends formulated a theory of devolution to be too keen on a president who is unfazed by the extrajudicial executions of American citizens.
So, the new song is hilarious, as is the the Seamus themed video game, and don't we all need a good laugh these days?
