    That came out the week before I bought my first Gibson, a used L6S. No, I was not inspired to do so by Devo, did find them entertaining though.

    They sound like a drum machine.

    They turned a stupid song into gold. The cold, drum machine-like rhythm gave the song's vapid narrator a deserved sendup by de-emphasizing his feelings of frustration and underlining the consumerist desires that drive him. Without the feelings in the way, the shallow existence of the song's protagonist is laid bare and mocked. This was not just different to be different. Devo found the perfect song to drive home one of their core themes.

    They are high up the list of Bands I Wish I’d Seen Live Back In The Day. Showmanship!

    Man, I love those guys. Back in those days I had a band that covered "Girl U Want". The crowds always went nuts for that one.

    I had one of those back in the mid 1970's, I really liked it. I paid $489.00 with a case for it. I ended up trading it for a 1967 Chevelle station wagon. At the time, I needed that car more than the guitar. I ended up selling the car for $500.00 a year later so it was a wash.

    Time to listen to "Gut Feeling,"
    A DEVO song I'd never heard of till I heard it on a Devo thread here, not too long ago



    A hypnotic sequence of 5 silly major chords
    E-G-C-A-D

    * I think the 'genius' is that it's a run of 5 chords vs. 4? The extra chords and beats throw you ( well, me) off from the more conventional rhythm

    DEVO is nothing like something I would do ( I'm just a R&R cave man) but they are pretty fascinating to me
