Circus Devils – The Other Band From Akron

Actually only half two thirds -Todd Tobias (and brother Tim, back in Bob’s good graces apparently after a falling out between the GBV leader and the former bassman) is from Devo’s hometown of Akron, OH, Bob Pollard is from Dayton as anyone can tell you.

The sixth album under the Circus Devils moniker,”Ataxia” by Bob and Todd (and Tim) continues the experimental theme of the project, this time with Todd enlisting a few friends to make videos for several of the songs. “Give Me Extra” and “Eye Razors” manage to channel the spastic soul of early MTV-era Devo videos in a totally original way;

Also, Bob is sponsoring a contest for the best fan video for “Winston’s Atomic Bird” from his new project Boston Spaceships – “Brown Submarine”, here are two cool entries;

And of course, having sworn off touring several times already since the breakup of Guided By Voices, he will be touring to promote the new material (YAY!)
