In their noble quest for viable new hybrids, the earnest chemists behind San Francisco De-Evolutionary outlet, Mongoloid, have taken "the sound of things falling apart" and made it swing. The resultant concoction: Mongolounge. It's Devo poured over ice and served with a twist.


Mongolounge features the bass plucking of San Francisco underground showman Chicken John. The competent stickwork of Chris Campbell provides the finger-snappin' rhythms. Mongoloid's Bob III blends in loungey jazz chords on the six-string while Dave slides in to infuse brassy baying on trombone. The final garnish in this Devoid libation is the velvet-throated crooning of Mongoloid frontman, Loid.
