DEVO, Evil WMG, and such as

It has come to my attention that Warner Music Group is blocking many of my favorite you-tubers. Because they really care about the artists, and such as.

Right. Cobags. Anyways, this video has a shout-out to Columbus, Ohio, where we who are about to freeze salute you.

I saw these guys right around then. That was some fun. I still have a real soft spot for "Mongoloid."

I got this record back in 1978, but I never DEVO live.

I remember seeing them on SNL back then.

It helped make me the zombie I am today.

Had some friends in college who had a half-assed new wave band. They were going to play a song or two on the campus TV station, for a telethon for kids with birth defects. During rehearsals, the director came over and asked them if they REALLY wanted to do THAT song.... yep, they were practicing "Mongoloid". Never struck them, really, because to them it was a song about brain-deadening suburban lifestyles.

mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
he was happier than you and me
mongoloid, he was a mongoloid
it determined what he could see

Never saw Devo live though. WELL PLAYED, SNAG. YOU WIN - THIS TIME.

I had the pukey vinyl. Mottled grey never sounded so good.

The new Yo La Tengo album is pretty good.

I like periodically double or triple... is this on the new one or is it older?
