Michael/Devo-Obsesso

Hardcore DEVO fan since 1980. In 1988 I decided to follow my genetic imperative in archiving DEVO memorabilia. Formally met the band in the mid 1990's thanks to Lisa Casale, and began assisting with graphics, screen printing, and archiving over the next few years.

 

Officially started working for the band in 2002 as a paid employee of DEVO, Inc. Since then I've been assisting them on tour, managing their archives, helping with graphic design, providing tons of content for their online presence, and keeping in touch with their Devoted fanbase.

 

In 2010 we teamed up with the Mother Agency & Warner Bros Records to give you even more DEVO in the form of their "Something For Everybody" release...their first full length album in 20 years.

 

Now in these post-Warner Brothers days, DEVO needs your support more than ever. We hope you enjoy this new DEVO web site, launched in March 2012. Be sure to check out the "Concert Photos" & "Concert Videos" categories in the 'Photos' & 'Video' pages at clubdevo.com. I will post photos & videos from the road while I'm with DEVO at any of their concerts, so check there for tour reports.

 

For a peek at my DEVO archives, go to www.Devo-Obsesso.com.

 

Duty Now, Spuds.

Gerald V. Casale of DEVO on the recent passing of David Bowie:


"David Bowie was one of the greatest artists of all time. I feel privileged that I ever got to know him. He gave Devo his blessing. He remained true to his art until the end like I wanted so badly for us to do." - Gerald V. Casale/DEVO
