  1. was listening to their first 2 lps the other day.

    man, these guys were pretty darned great early on.

    with eno at the helm on the first one, lotsa nice squawks and skweeks.

    great rhythms.

    duty now for the future has good guitar work too.

    all with a humorous socio-product-bashing angles. 90 degree of course.

    fun stuff!

  2. I like "Are We Not Men?..." a lot, but that's the only album I have of theirs.
  3. i love the ARE WE NOT MEN lp.

    shrivel up is a fave.

    their 2nd album- "Duty Now FOR the FuTuRE" is really excellent.

    after that, i lost interest.

    Too bad for you. I highly recommend "Freedom Of Choice", "New Traditionalists", and "Oh, No! It's DEVO". I love DEVO. One of my favorites.
  5. Great band.
    There is a video out there with some early concert clips. Pick it up if you can find it.

    Fantastic band, IMO. Has anyone heard there cover of the NIN song "Head Like A Hole". It's so funny, because it's the same song... except with that Devo edge. Great stuff.
  8. DEVO:

    "Greatest Hits"

    "Greatest Misses"

    "E-Z Listening Disc" (I think this is the funniest)
