Devo Spice is a comedy-rapper from New Jersey who has been called "the red-headed stepson of Weird Al Yankovic and Eminem." His demented brand of hip hop has made him one of the most popular artists on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show. Devo Spice founded the comedy rap group Sudden Death whose songs "Cellular Degeneration", "Getting Old Sucks" and "Pillagers" were the numbers 1, 2, and 4 most requested songs on Dr. Demento in 2007, and Devo has had several hit songs since.
Devo Spice performs regularly across the country at music clubs, comedy clubs, and science fiction conventions. He has shared the stage with Dr. Demento, MC Lars, MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and many others. The live show features videos and animations synchronized with the music resulting in a hilarious show that goes over very well with a variety of audiences.
Sudden Death broke onto the scene in 2002 when their song "Dead Rappers" became a hit on the Dr. Demento Show. Devo Spice also teamed up with The Great Luke Ski that year on Luke's song "Peter Parker" which went on to become the most requested song of the year. In 2003 Sudden Death hit it big on Dr. Demento with "Ozzman," a backhanded tribute to the Prince Of F'ing Darkness.
2005 was a breakthrough year for Sudden Death on Dr. Demento when they had 2 songs in the top 10 at the end of the year with "Spam" at #10 and "Inner Voice" at #1. Then in 2007 Sudden Death produced a constant stream of hits on the show resulting in his songs ending up #1, #2, and #4 most requested songs of the year. Devo Spice also appeared as a guest vocalist on the #5 most requested song of the year, "Anorexiac" by Seamonkey.
In 2007 Sudden Death became a Core member of The Funny Music Project, or The FuMP (http://www.thefump.com) which releases 2 songs every week for free under a Creative Commons license. Devo Spice continues to release new songs there as they are completed.
Sudden Death's 2008 album Fatal Error was considered for a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album in the fall of 2008. Later that year Devo Spice decided to drop the group name Sudden Death due to rising confusion with other bands using that name.
Since then Devo Spice has continued to release music, including the 2011 album Gnome Sane which went to #28 on the Hip Hop charts on iTunes, and the 2014 Doctor Who concept album I Am The Doctor which features cameos by several actors from the original run of Doctor Who.
