Devo - Q: Are We Not Men? A" We Are Devo!


On this date in 1978, Devo released their debut full length album, Q: Are We Not Men? A" We Are Devo!. It contained the singles, "Come back Jonee" (#60 U.K.), "Jocko Homo" (#62 U.K.), "Mongoloid" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (#41 U.K.), though this last track was different than the single version. The album reached the #78 spot on the U.S. albums chart and the #12 spot on the U.K. albums chart. The Akron, Ohio punk/new wave band went on hiatus in the early 90's as the band members were involved in separate projects. They resumed recording and performing in 1996.

There it is in all it's ghastly glory, the worlds most disturbing album cover!!! Saw Devo last year and they were well above and beyond expectation for a bunch of blokes who's collective age must be at least 350!!
Josh Freeze looked like he was having a hard time getting his head round some of the devorhythms for an entire set though - good to see that a band like Devo can push someone who's the most renowned rock drummer for hire on the planet to his limits!!
