Devo Spice Update - 4/20/2011

Hey everyone!

How’s things?  Things are awesome over here at Devo Spice central, although I’m as busy as ever.  Hopefully things will calm down long enough for me to catch my breath soon.  Breathing is good, especially when you’re asthmatic.

--== GNOME SANE HITS THE ITUNES CHARTS ==--
--== GNOME SANE AVAILABLE ON CD FOR THOSE WHO DON’T LIKE BITS ==--
--== LOTS OF FUNNY PEOPLE AT PENGUICON ==--


--== GNOME SANE HITS THE ITUNES CHARTS ==--
For those of you who may not have heard on April 1st I released my new album Gnome Sane and asked everyone to buy it on iTunes on that day in the hopes it would be pushed up the charts a bit.  After finding out that I could not list the album in the Comedy category and instead had to list it in Hip Hop I was skeptical that I would even break the top 200.  However, I was in the top 75 before I even left for work that morning.

By mid afternoon the album was hovering in the top 30 on the Hip Hop charts and peaked at number 28.  I have the screenshots to prove it.  And I take a certain perverse pleasure in the fact that I was higher on the charts, if for only a brief period, than Kanye West.  All that and I didn’t even have to use my AK.  Damn right it was a good day.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the rush.  It was a huge success.  If you took part and haven’t yet sent me your iTunes receipt please do so soon.  I underestimated how many people would take part in the rush and need to order more copies of the bonus CD, but I need to know how many to order, so please send me your receipts as soon as you can.


--== GNOME SANE AVAILABLE ON CD FOR THOSE WHO DON’T LIKE BITS ==--
And for those of you who don’t like Apple or still want your music on shiny round things you can now get Gnome Sane on CD!  The CD is available in the store at DevoSpice.com (http://www.devospice.com/store_release.php?id=78) or in the store at TheFuMP.com (http://www.thefump.com/store_release.php?id=78).  It doesn’t matter to me which one you use because they both come to me anyway.  (The FuMP takes credit cards directly.  I only have PayPal set up on my site if that’s an issue.)

Gnome Sane contains 19 tracks, that’s over 70 minutes of funny-rap goodness, including “I Hate Mondays,” “Platform Wars,” and my latest FuMP release “Earworm” with MC Lars.  It also includes album exclusive tracks like “Nerds Rule” with YTCracker, “Romantic Interlude,” and my Eminem parody “Not Amused.”  If you haven’t ordered your copy yet you can order it online at the links above.

Or if you’re going to be at PenguiCon at the end of the month you can pick it up from me there.  Speaking of which...


--== LOTS OF FUNNY PEOPLE AT PENGUICON ==--
Penguicon’s comedy music track is becoming rather epic.  This year the list of performers includes: Devo Spice, the great Luke Ski, Tom Smith, Possible Oscar (Jared and Nathan acoustic), Insane Ian, Power Salad, Positude, Tom Smith, Norm Sherman, Frank Hayes, Toyboat, Gifted Gear, Derwood Bowen, and MC Frontalot.

Penguicon is taking place April 29th - May 1st in Troy, MI, just outside of Detroit.  For more information visit http://www.penguicon.org.  There will be a dedicated merch table for all the dementia artists so look for my CD there along with a new t-shirt design.

That’s all folks.  Back to working on secret project #SIRH79.
