Yeah, Devo. Devo was the very first band that I followed seriously, starting maybe when I was fourteen. There is an argument to be made that Freedom of Choice was their best album -- not just because of Whip It, but because of under-appreciated songs like Girl U Want, Ton of Luv, and even the title track. It's so weird that being a geek is cool now. I mean, we had geek posers back then, I guess -- the ones who only read the interstitial stories of Godel, Escher, Bach, instead of the whole text.
Yeah, anyway, plastic hats off to Devo -- geek pioneers.
