Devo’s Jerry Casale has come to the support of more powers for Scotland, as an alternative to full independence – well, kind of.
In an interview with the BBC Radio 4 Today programme, the singer spoke of the pros and cons of Devo Max – the non-independence solution to Scotland’s political future which would see further tax-raising powers devolved away from Westminster.
Casale has also adapted the lyrics to the band’s signature tune, Jocko Homo, as a possible new national anthem:
“They tells us that / we can’t be free
to control our / own destiny
I say that’s just / hypocrisy
Are we not Scots? / We are Devo (max)”
