Devo - Jerkin' Back 'N' Forth


On this date in 1982, Devo released their thirteenth single, "Jerkin' Back 'N' Forth". It was backed by "Mecha-Mania Boy". The A side appeared on their fourth album, New Traditionalists. The B side was a non-LP track that was added to the album as a bonus track when re-released on CD. It was a U.S.-only release. The Akron, Ohio punk/new wave band went on hiatus in the early 90's as the band members were involved in separate projects. They resumed recording and performing in 1996.
