Now Hear This: Yonic South | Devo Challenge Cup

Q: Are they not DEVO fans? A: They are — and on this EP, the Italian garage-rockers celebrate the sound and style of the Spudboys (along with Blink-182 & video games).

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Now that the pandemic years made their obession with Twix bars even harder, garage punk agitators and gabber nutters Yonic South return with DEVO Challenge Cup, a new EP.

the Italian five-piece, comprised of members of Bee Bee Sea and Miss Chain & The Broken Heels, keep playing a crude and boisterous brand of smash ’n’ grab garage-punk laced with heady hits of psych and grinding bursts of noise.
The record is a tribute to DEVO and is a sort of 13-minute medley divided into six tracks, including a drum solo, a cover of Girl U Want, a short nod to Blink-182, the Citroen Picasso (used as tour van) and a video-games extravaganza (Need For Speed, Guitar Hero, Super Mario and Tetris are just some of the Easter eggs).”
