The Devo Show (R.I.P. Bob 2)

The world unexpectedly lost Bob Casale (a.k.a. "Bob 2") this past Monday, at the age of 61. Casale was Devo's guitarist and keyboardist, and a founding member of the punk/post-punk legends alongside his brother Jerry and the brothers Mark and Bob "Bob 1" Mothersbaugh. Casale's death comes less than a year after the loss of longtime Devo drummer Alan Myers, who died last summer at just 58 years old. These are both terribly sad losses for the underground music world, and so it seemed a fitting time to stop and pay tribute to Devo.

For this special hour of The Way Out, we combined a few favorite Devo tracks along with some Devo side projects (Mark Mothersbaugh's film and TV scores, Jihad Jerry, Devo 2.0, and Devo aliases The Wipeouters and The Smart Patrol) and various artists who either influenced the spudboys or were closely associated with them over the years.

Here's the playlist for our Thursday, February 20, 2014, show:

Devo - "Jocko Homo (Booji Boy version)"
The Wipeouters - "Shut Up Little Man"
The Smart Patrol - "That's What He Said"
Jihad Jerry & The Evildoers - "Beehive"
Devo 2.0 - "Boy U Want"
Mark Mothersbaugh - "Hardest Geometry Problem in the World"
Cyndi Lauper - "Pee-Wee's Playhouse Theme"
Devo - "Uncontrollable Urge"
Pere Ubu - "Life Stinks"
The Dead Boys - "Ain't Nothin' to Do"
15 60 75 (The Numbers Band) - "Animal Speaks"
Tin Huey - "I'm a Believer"
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - "Dropout Boogie"

Archived streaming audio of this show can be heard here now (playable in Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, Opera, and Safari browsers):

Note: The bracketed songs in the playlist had to be cut from the live broadcast due to time constraints, but we've inserted them into the archived streaming audio file posted here. Consider this the "deluxe edition" of the show! We've also included the full 10-minutes of "Hey Hey, My My" from the film Human Highway (1982) - it was faded out after about 2-minutes in the live broadcast. As a result, though, be aware that the song references in the last voice break don't match perfectly to the playlist order you'll hear in this streaming audio file.
