Mechanical Man is a semi-official EP by New Wave musicians Devo, released in 1978. It includes four 4-track basement demos by the band, recorded before they were signed to a record contract with Warner Bros. Records.
The EP was a 7" single housed in a plain sleeve that came in a variety of colors including pink, blue, red, yellow and green. Most EP sleeves were numbered on the back, although the exact number of EPs pressed is unknown.
Although the Mechanical Man EP has never had a proper CD release, all but one track ("Blockhead") were re-released on the Rykodisc compilations Hardcore Devo: Volume One and Volume Two. "Mechanical Man" is an edited version starting at 1:01 of the released version, "Clockout" is labeled as "Blackout" and "Auto-Modown" includes "Space Girl Blues".
