In 2005, Devo's Gerald V. Casale released the notorious Jihad Jerry and The Evildoers album as a limited edition CD from Cordless Recordings. With contributions from all of his Devo bandmates - Josh Freese, Bob Casale (d. 2014), Bob Mothersbaugh, and Mark Mothersbaugh - it's considered to be the "lost" Devo album, and a holy grail for collectors. Now, Real Gone Music presents Jihad Jerry and The Evildoers for the first time on vinyl in a special gatefold-and-inner-sleeve package featuring newly created cover artwork by acclaimed woodcut artist Tomo77 and lyrics. The release also includes a very special bonus track, "I'm Gonna Pay U Back," featuring members of Devo joining forces for the first time ever with Oingo Boingo’s lead guitarist Steve Bartek.
