Devo Gets Mutated

Reader Ed Dahl shared with us this ‘mutated cover of a Devo song’, the SpacEKrafT take on Devo’s Triumph of the WIll.

SpacEKrafT’s Kurt Stenzel has this to say about the video:

About 2 years ago, when I told Mark Mothersbaugh I was scoring a film about Jodorowsky, he looked at me, paused, and said “that’s a real opportunity.”

I said, “yes, I know, what’s your advice?”

Mark said: “DON’T FUCK UP.”

HA! Yes sir!

Around that time, Toth Wilder of the Church of the Subgenius asked SpacEKrafT to do a cover of a Devo song–Edward W. Dahl and I said “hmmmm, we don’t do covers, PERFECT.”

I went to my brother Jim Starace for help with some video footage to go with the song. After Jim died in November, I was going through our email correspondence, and I found a link I hadn’t seen. It turns out Jim had made a whole music video– my last collaboration with my very dear friend.

Here’s to the artists in my life–may we all remain Triumphantly Unwilling!

    you broke the looking glass. now, break the stone.

    this stone has a soul, formed by the work of millions of years”
