In other Devo news, I'm giving my lecture of apocalyptic (mainly nuclear) songs tomorrow, and closing by showing the video for Devo's "Beautiful World."



The dystopic twist in the last minute is superb.

I don't think I'd have more than thirty minutes of material. Maybe as part of some kind of larger piece on dystopian art, but on Devo alone I don't have much to say.

Goddamn but this is still one of the most amazing music performances on tv. I would have been slack jawed the whole time.

Hello,

I dragged a few friends into the Furman University Student Center to watch this. Aside from a few "Who are these guys?" in the first 10 seconds, it was silence except for me occasionally singing along. That was actually the reaction I had hoped for at Furman.

More Devo 1978:


I am seriously transfixed by this stuff. It's all so foreign in relation to what came before. Punk bands like the Pistols and Clash were banal compared to what's happening here. It all demands that there's something a whole lot more significant than just rock music going on here, but it's also so dystopic insanity.

The last song during the credits is a cover of "The Words Get Stuck in My Throat", which is the song the lounge singer was singing before a kaiju attack in the Toho film War of the Gargantuas.

Hello,

I just noticed Mark Mothersbaugh was credited with the soundtrack for What We Do In The Shadows tv episode. This episode was the American citizenship episode. It featured a house party with a band called Ska La Land - whose singer was unfortunately eaten. Mark has turned out to be more eclectic than I previously thought.
