Devo - Mongoloid/Jocko Homo (1977) 7" Vinyl-Rip

"Mongoloid" is the first single released by Devo in 1977, on the "Booji Boy" label. It was backed with the song Jocko Homo. Mongoloid also had one of the first music videos made using collage. Mongoloid would later be re-recorded by Devo, and appear on the album Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! in 1978. It is also a staple of Devo's live shows.
"Mongoloid," like many of Devo's early songs, was built on a motorik beat. The song opens with a 4/4 electric bass line, which is then joined by drums, and electric guitar. Over this, a swooping synthesizer line is played on Minimoog, using the pitch bend to create a spooky effect. The synth is not used as a lead instrument during the song, but only the opening and closing. The doubled vocals are sung simultaneously by both Gerald V. Casale and "Bob 1" (Bob Mothersbaugh). On the original single, the vocals are deliberately sung in a nasal fashion.

"Jocko Homo" is the B-side to Devo's first single, "Mongoloid." Based on a chant from the movie Island of Lost Souls,[1] "Jocko Homo" is considered to be Devo's anthem. The title is taken from an anti-evolution tract called Jocko-Homo Heavenbound by B. H. Shadduck. The song revolves around an idiosyncratic descending guitar riff and absurdist lyrics. The song peaked at #62 on the UK Singles Chart.

Big Black - Peel Session (1987) 7" Bootleg Vinyl-Rip

BIG BLACK were born in 1982, instigated by Steve Albini, then a Sophomore at Northwestern University, a fanzine writer and a loudmouth. A six-song EP, LUNGS, was recorded on a borrowed 4-track for the price of one case of beer. Five years later, at the peak of their popularity, Big Black split. They never had a manager, a booking agent, a lawyer, or took an advance from their record company. They left a musical legacy dripping with power, cynicism and a sense of humour that was blacker than black. In Seattle, at their final gig, they smashed up all their stuff. In 1992 Touch and Go Records, through Southern Studios re-released the entire Big Black catalog.

This is a Bootleg single of Big Black's 1987 Peel session.

The line-up was:
Bass - David Riley
Guitar - Santiago Durango
Guitar, Vocals - Steve Albini

A1 Dead Billy
A2 Ugly American
B1 Newmangenerator
B2 L Dopa
