You should listen to some Devo then. Lots of classics. One of those bands where the more popular tunes still kick ass, from Gates of Steel to Gut Feeling back to Smart Patrol and Mr DNA.

I've been busting the English Beat and Men at Work today. 80's flashback day.

I know people are sick of this song, but I could give two ****s. Colin always surrounds himself with great band members and writes great songs.

Pere Ubu's early singles are pretty much the best thing since proverbial sliced bread.

A lot of Rock's mainstay hits were waiting for versions like this to happen. I seriously like this version more than the original as it is more edgy. Not to totally slight the original, but that's my opinion.

The albums from Q: Are We Not Men? A: We are Devo! to New Traditionalists are great to start with.

Rykodisk had two compilations of the early years, Hardcore Devo which showed more of an experimental edge as well as the early sketches of songs that turned into Devo classics.

Video-wise, The Men Who Make the Music is a classic and the 1984 VHS We're All Devo is possibly the best compiling of the first era with Warner Brothers featuring some humorous links featuring Lauraine Newman of the early Saturday Night Live.

The Truth About De-Evolution, which covers the time from the first album to Smooth Noodle Maps' "Post-Post Modern Man" in two versions is best seen in it's Laserdisc format, as the DVD omits the brilliant video of their cover of Are You Experienced? ("Are U Experienced?") due to the then-executors of the Jimi Hendrix Estate denying permission to leave it in the program (The old adage "To seek permission is to seek denial" is stated on the back cover of the Rhino DVD). Still, if you get the disc, the commentary featuring Mark and Gerald is seriously great with plenty of detail, although it would have been interesting to hear their views on "Dr. Detroit" and "Are U Experienced?", the later from the ill-fated 1984 album, Shout. The extras are highly enjoyable.
