Devo emerged with a concept of ‘De-evolution’ and took the inspiration of the band’s name from the same idea. It presented the world their opinion about the regression of mankind. According to their belief, the herd mentality of the American society actually opposes the idea of evolution. This view of society being rigid and repressive actually reflected in their music in the form of robotic and jerky rhythms.
The concept that started as a joke at Kentt State University by the students, turned into a serious thing by Casale, Mark Mothersbaugh and Lewis, forming a band named ‘Sextet Devo’. The trio with the inclusion of a couple of other members took the idea of ‘De- evolution’ further in their performances unveiling The Complete Truth about De-evolution in a video that played in University festivals. With a slight change in the lineup, the band continued to make performances at local festivals and University gatherings.
