Devo's Gerry Casale wants to warn older fans about the latest incarnation of his band.
"You're not going to like it," he says.
In fact, he adds, "If you're not upset by it, we haven't done our jobs."
No problem there.
Those who cherished the sickness, subversion and edge Devo brought to the world 25 years ago will likely be appalled by the band's reinvention as a spanking-clean, teen-pop group brought to you by Disney.
This week, Disney Sound Records releases "Devo 2.0," a CD/DVD project that finds a group of 10- to 14-year-olds performing old Devo hits ("Whip It," "Peekaboo!" and the like) with the kind of beaming demeanor you'd expect from "Sesame Street."
Lyrics have been sanitized, innuendos eradicated, and the songs sped up to cartoonish levels.
