B Stiff is the first EP by new wave musicians Devo, released in 1977. It is a compilation of the three 7-inch singles released by the band on Stiff Records in the UK. The cover was created by graphic designer Barney Bubbles and photographer Brian Griffin.

Availability[edit]

Although the B Stiff EP has never had a proper CD release, all but one of its tracks have been re-released on various compilation albums in the digital format:

  • "Mongoloid" - Pioneers Who Got Scalped: The Anthology. (A slightly different mix appeared on Hardcore Devo: Volume One.)
  • "(I Saw My Baby Gettin') Sloppy" - Recombo DNA (the extra few seconds of drum noise and shouting before the song starts has been removed from this version)
  • "Social Fools" - Still unreleased, although a different version appeared as the B-side of "Come Back Jonee" and later on the Virgin CD release of "Q: Are We Not Men/A: We Are Devo!"/Dev-O Live EP" as a bonus track.
