DEVO’S GERALD V. CASALE: AKA JIHAD JERRY & THE EVILDOERS

DEVO’S GERALD V. CASALE: AKA JIHAD JERRY & THE EVILDOERS

In 2005, DEVO’s Gerald V. Casale released
the notorious Jihad Jerry & The Evildoers
album as a limited edition CD from Cordless
Recordings. With contributions from all of
his DEVO bandmates, Josh Freese, Bob
Casale (d.2014), Bob Mothersbaugh, and
Mark Mothersbaugh, it’s considered to be
the “lost” DEVO album, and a holy grail for
collectors. Now, Real Gone Music presents
a new deluxe expanded CD featuring new
artwork by acclaimed woodcut artist Tomo77,
and no less than 5 bonus tracks. Includes
the previously unreleased “Huboon Stomp,” and “Pieces Of Joe,” plus the BRAND
NEW SINGLE, “I’m Gonna Pay U Back” (also here in an instrumental version) which
features members of DEVO joining forces for the first time ever with Oingo Boingo’s
lead guitarist Steve Bartek. (Plus there’s even a spoken-word “benediction” to end the
album.) It’s been over 10 years since DEVO’s 2010 album Something for Everybody…this
one will slake the thirst of the band’s devotees.
