UTG INTERVIEW: Devo’s Gerald Casale Discusses Upcoming Tour, The Internet And EDM

“The prize to look for is originality and I don’t think that’s really a value that’s part of our culture now. I don’t think people want originality. They want exactly what they know. They’ve already heard it, and they want more of it.”

According to Devo‘s founding member, Jerry Casale, the band was hardcore art way before any inkling of commercialization. The band’s debut album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, was released in 1978 via Warner Bros. Records, yet their upcoming ‘HARDCORE DEVO’ Tour focuses on the band’s music from 1974-1977. The idea, which …

Twin Shadow

Watch Twin Shadow Perform “To The Top” on ‘Conan’

Back in April, Twin Shadow dropped a powerful new song titled “To The Top.” It’s a strong pop piece of ’80s foundation with clean vocals sung over it, but that was all he shared. There was no word of a new album, an EP, or anything. So when he stepped onstage on Conan last night, his presence was an appreciated surprise.

Twin Shadow performed “To The Top,” showing that the song upholds its sturdy structure live just as well as it does in the recorded version. It was performed in a circle with some gospel, giving it the

“You realize that’s probably not going to go anywhere,” replied the Toledo band director when Hamm told him he’d be quitting to pursue his own band full-time.

“Maybe this is enough for him. Maybe we’ll show him a little set from The Wonder Years tour,” says Hamm with a smile.

On Saturday May 17, UTG TV hopped in the van with the guys in Citizen after the band performed to a crazy crowd at the Skate And Surf Festival in Asbury Park, NJ.…
