Upcoming Bullsh*t

YES YES YES, BUT WILL THEY BE WEARING FUNNY RED HATS, TOO?

According to a recent interview on Crustcake’s podcast, Doomriders and Sweet Cobra are teaming up to release a new Devo-themed 7″.

No, your eyes do not deceive you. I wrote “Devo-themed.”

Apparently, Doomriders will cover Devo’s “Girl U Want,” while Sweet Cobra will tackle the band’s “Gates of Steel.” I just went on YouTube to get videos of Devo’s original versions of both songs, and, hey, guess what? They performed each one as part of an appearance on the short-live Saturday Night Live rip-off, Fridays, back in 1981 (see below video). I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or if this performance served as the inspiration for the Doom Cobras team-up, but I do know I wanna hear this split ASAP:

There’s no official release date for the split yet, but it will come out sometime soon-ish on Hawthorne Street Records. The Doomriders’ track was produced by the great Kurt Ballou; Allen Epley and Eric Abert from the band The Life and Times produced the Sweet Cobra portion. I don’t really know The Life and Times’ music, but I do know that they’re Pelican-approved, so I’ll give ’em the benefit of the doubt.
