according to this note from impact records (i assume they were the US distributor for this 7") 4,000 were made. this is only some reddit post so I don't know if this warrants a change but take that as the pressing number if you want.

it also says only TWENTY pink cover promo copies were made. again, take that as you will but that's pretty cool if it's true. the ratio of haves to wants on Devo - Mechanical Man makes it seem possible to me (as of today only 5 users have it compared to 167 wants)

I would definitely say it's Devo, they have had a variety of "sounds" throughout the years on the same songs, I think it fits.

I have heard, from someone who claims to have been involved in the recording, that this isn't actually Devo at all!
Are there any other verified recordings of "Mechanical Man"? Have Devo ever played it live?

I've heard before this is not a bootleg but a fake bootleg released in the UK to hype the band up. It came out so early this seems to be possible.
