Devo - Total Devo [2LP] (30th Anniversary, 180 Gram, Pink Colored Vinyl, gatefold, bonus remixes + 6 never before heard tracks, poster, 2 postcards, limited)
Limited double 180gm "Defcon Disco" pink vinyl LP pressing housed 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. Also contains two collectable photographic postcards! Digitally remastered and expanded 30th anniversary deluxe edition of Devo's 1988 album. Over the years this totally underrated album has become a true fan favorite, as well as a prediction of these unsettling times we live in. So, it seems only fitting it's right now that Total Devo gets it's first time reissue for all to hear. 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 hindsight has this serving as a true testament to another of Devo's misunderstood works of art.
