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!
