Devo

Profil:
New-wave group popular throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, formed by a group of art students at Kent State University, principally Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale. Their name comes from the central concept of "de-evolution" - the idea that mankind is devolving instead of evolving, as evidenced by the encroaching gullibility and herd mentality of the American people.

After releasing several records on their own Booji Boy label, their work on the short film The Truth About De-Evolution in 1976 got them signed to Warner Brothers, where they had a major hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It". After 1980, their career continuously faded from the public eye until the band called it quits in the early 1990s. However, they reformed for a series of live dates in 2004.

Line-up:
Mark Mothersbaugh: vocals, keyboards, guitar
Gerald V. Casale: vocals, bass, keyboards
Bob Mothersbaugh (Bob I): lead guitar, vocals
Bob Casale (Bob II): rhythm guitar, keyboards, vocals

Was already into Ramones/Pistols, etc. when I saw Devo on Sat.NightLive in '78. It made most existing NewWave/Punk look like the Stones or something. They seemed to come from another planet! Their first 3 albums are essential. A truly unique and original band with very few influences, which can't be said about many (great) bands.

No comments so far? Highly influential band here. They combined great music with an equally great image. Check out the Hardcore comps plus the early stuff (1977-1981). Some of their peers include Pere Ubu (also from O-Hi-O!), The Residents and Suicide. Def. one of the best bands :)
