I have been following DEVO since the earliest days of Saturday night live videos , the first album in 78 , etc. very much saddened by passing of bob 2 . Are you guys interested in collaborating with outside agitators ? I am from true mutant stock , my dad was an artist & professor , friend of the DADA founder George Grosz , whom he got to lecture at UBC when he was head of the art department there . He was also the drinking buddy & close friend of benighted anarchist Sir Herbert Read , as well as Alexander Archipenko , inventor of sculpture painting . I know this says nothing of my abilities and achievements , but it is a pedigree of sorts.I am a visionary , writer , artist ,musician,& Tibetan oracle . I sometimes channel the Holy Spirit of Alfred Jarry ,proto-Dada-Surrealist,who prophesied the terrible events of 9/11/ 01 in his play Caesar Antichrist . I have written a cohesive and exciting UBU play which refuses to terminate , threatening to become a series : UBU CANNIBAAL . ~BRIAN
Its too hard to get all of us original members to work on stuff let alone invite others in. Sorry! If it were a more perfect world...
last one didn't seem to go through , so I will rewrite & send . DID YOU KNOW THAT THE NATIVES OF THE TROBRIANDS HAVE A RELIGEON BASED ON THE YAM , MUCH AS YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM IS BASED ON THE HUMBLE YET LOVEABLE SPUD ? THEY HAVE BLOODY WARS , PROVOKED BY THE BELIEF THAT NEIGHBOURING CLANS HAVE ENTICED THEIR YAMS TO UPROOT THEMSELVES AND WALK TO THEIR RIVALS FIELDS IN THE NIGHT , THROUGH NEFARIOUS MAGIC & SEDUCTIVE SONGS . THESE SAME NATIVES APPEAR IN MY PLAY "UBU CANNIBAAL" . THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLES MY FATHER ENCOUNTERED DURING WORLD WAR II . HE TRADED WITH THEM , AND I HAVE IN MY POSSESSION A CANNIBAL MASK , CARVED BY THEM . I GLEANED MY KNOWLEDGE OF THEM FROM A BOOK BY MARGARETTE MEAD'S HUSBAND , R.F. FORTUNE , ENTITLED 'SORCERERS OF DOBU" . I SHALL BE HONOURED TO SEND YOU A HAND WROUGHT , ILLUSTRATED COPY OF MY PLAY "UBU CANNIBAAL"(the story so far) . please send me an address ,by which it will be received by MESSRS. MARK MOTHERSBOUGH & GERRY CASALES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH ~BRIAN DDEVO responded on 04/16/2015 Next question
