Interview: Gerald Casale of Devo


Noise11.com's Paul Cashmere recently talked with Devo founder Gerald Casale who had a number of fascinating stories about the group.

For instance, the first album for Devo was going to be produced by David Bowie but Bowie kept delaying because of movie commitments and the job was handed to Brian Eno.

Devo also had a part in a movie. Neil Young invited them to appear in his film ‘Human Highway’. Casale says Neil let him direct the 7 minutes Devo were on the screen.

Gerald also confirms that a movie based on the early days of Devo is still in the works Devo – The Beginning Was The End will go ahead if investors are found.

Then there is Casale’s other job, as a video director. He directed Silverchair’s ‘Freak’ video all those years ago.
