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.

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
Jim Mothersbaugh (1974-1976): drums

There's a great video of 'Secret Agent Man' from around 1975/6. it has a brilliant clip during the 'guitar solo' where the guitarist has two regular guitars gaffer taped together into a hilarious parody of the double neck hyperbole type shit the old dinosaurs like Zeppelin were touting. That's how good Devo were, their stage act was super slick and fast. American acts of this period like Ubu and Suicide and even Sparks have stood the test of time. Alongside them Brit new wavers (hate this term) seem lame....we had to wait for The KLF to have some genuine quality British art pop anarchy.

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 :)
