As previously reported, bizarro-rock icons Devo plan to let slip the dogs of spoof against Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney with a song called “Don’t Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Seamus Unleashed)”. Now, with Romney no doubt reeling from further tax-dodging allegations, the song has surfaced online. Set to an uptempo guitar groove, the band admits they wished Seamus had “lost it just that once” following the 1983 racking incident, seemingly implying that the majestic Irish Setter should have taken a bite out of Romney’s elliptical-honed buttocks.
The song will be available for sale on iTunes this Sunday (08/26) to coincide with National Dog Day. It’s also the soundtrack to the forthcoming Dogs Against Romney-created mobile game “The Crate Escape (Seamus Unleashed)“.
In other Devo news, Gerald Casale recently sat down with Billboard to talk about future projects. Among them, the band, who has been label-less since being dropped by Warner Bros. last September, could release a dozen demos and “focus-group rejects” (like “Raise Your Hands” and “Throw Money at the Problem”) in October. In addition, the band also has plans to issue its unheard material individually through iTunes and Amazon as opposed to CD and vinyl; sets under consideration include Devo Opens the Vault, Gems from the Devo Dumpster, and Something Else For Everybody.
