RIP Bob Casale, guitarist for Devo. I remember the first time I saw them--Saturday Night Live 1978. A bunch of my college music junkies couldn't believe our ears or eyes when they ripped into their version of "Satisfaction" by the Stones. Big influence on a lot of us.

The Driftaways are a seven-man reggae band hailing from St. Louis. Their E.P. "Don't Hide" is full of high-energy jams and groovy improvisations that give the band's music a good-time vibe.
