    I got to see them live early 80's ... a memorable show...

    I got a t-shrit at the gig like this one that I wore until it was full of holes and falling apart.... on the back was a long list of tour dates... :cool:

    Devo toured as their own opening band called Dove The Band Of Love. They did surf versions of Devo tunes. Brilliant.

    And released two cassette tapes and a CD of their own stuff played in the style of elevator music.

    I think I'm seeing the dreaded ( but cool!) "Anti-Gibson" Marauder or S-1?
    ( all maple, bolt-on neck, Bill Lawrence pickups)
    A bass player buddy of mine I used to play with had one- fun, and heavy!

    Great band, very thoughtful. I enjoyed them, and was pleased to see Mark M's continued success.
    I've heard several things in movies or on TV and thought 'that's gotta be Mothersbaugh' - and did a little checking and was proven correct.
