Editorial Reviews

"From a stage super-heated by over-the-top, rock 'n roll cliche lighting, DEVO faced a sea of Asian Gen X'ers in a 100 degree plus fahrenheit venue in the bowels of Tokyo, Japan. The crowd was swathed in bootlegged energy domes and DEVO T's, mouthing the

I bought this to be a completist, thinking it couldn't possibly be as good as Rhino's Devo Live DVD from the 1996 Lollapalooza tour. I was wrong. The spuds are still giving it everything they've got. The crowd was seemed very into it, although few of them were alive when Devo first toured with these songs.

They open with the General Boy (Daddy Mothersbaugh) Nutra intro and a song from that album, and there are three songs from Freedom of Choice, but the rest are from the first two. That's a Good Thing. The peformers might be a little thicker, but they aren't taking their performance any less seriously.

The 6.1 sound quality is great, although Bob Casale is a little low in the mix.

After almost three decades, things are getting good for Devo fans. If they release The Men Who Make the Music on DVD we'll be all set.

The Good

Live in Japan 2003

DEVO kick off their show in front of thousands of screaming Japanese fans with a montage of all their videos. The narrator tells us exactly what DEVO is all about. The band arrives on stage complete with bio-suits and `energy helmets' in tow. They kick things off with the electronic beats and monotone vocals of "That's Good". The crowd eagerly bounces to the beat of "Girl U Want". You know, I've always thought of DEVO as the "Whip It" guys, but I've realized that I know more of their songs than I thought. Speaking of "Whip It", the band gives away `energy helmets' as this favorite kicks in at only song three. The live version just might trump the studio version. DEVO cover the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" in their own unique way.

It's evident that time has caught up with the gang, as they appear a little `healthier' than I remember them. That doesn't stop them from nailing some cheesy choreography during "Uncontrollable Urge". Mark Mothersbaugh takes a cheerleading role, complete with pom-poms, as the rest of the band covers "Mongoloid". Can you even use that word today? "Jock Homo" might just be the DEVO anthem as they chant `We are DEVO'. The band strips out of their suits and done their classic black t-shirts, short shorts, and knee pads to close out the performance.

Extras

" DEVO goes to Japan" features various interviews with the band, most of the time they're with Mark and Gerald. Smaller clips could be seen intertwined with the live performance. Mark and Gerald talk about how the U.S. has de-evolved, despite their jokes twenty years ago that it would among other topics. Gerald's story of a night he spent with a Japanese groupie back in the eighties is priceless.

I was at this Devo show outside Tokyo. They were great, and the video captures the essence of the show. They are slowing down a little, but the music is still fantastic. Worth buying and watching.

...and I ONLY say this because I'm in total agreement with a few other reviewers who remark how the song selection is way too similar to the Lollapalooza '96 DVD. Someone in another Devo review referred to NEW TRADITIONALISTS as a "sellout" album; well, he's entitled to his opinion, but that remains my favorite Devo album (so sue me)...man, I would have loved to hear live renditions of "Through Being Cool" and "Beautiful World." I can't help wondering how the Mothersbaugh/Casale clan feel about that record today...do they dislike it as well?

No matter, really. This is a fantastic concert recording and, as you've already heard, a must for Devo fans around the world. Just watched it last night for the first time (thank you, Netflix) and found myself feeling the old energy I used to get from their heyday. Hated to see the DVD end. Loved seeing the Tokyo kids getting such a rush from seeing their spudboy heroes live in concert. And again, as one other reviewer mentioned, the interview segments between songs are great; Gerald and Mark still have their senses of humor intact, as well as their keen observations of how the world is even more F'd up now than it was 28 years ago (3 cheers for Gerald's referring to the retarded cowboy in the White House!). Oh, one other thing: I've been wanting to get a Pug puppy for a long time. Seeing Gerald and Mark with their Pug companions at their side has only reinforced my determination. <grin>

They may be a little grayer, a little more long in tooth, but they've still got it...and God love 'em, it's obvious that they were having a blast doing this show. I've been a fan since first seeing them on Saturday Night Live back in 1978 and have never had the good fortune to see them live.

It's Devo. Live. Recent. (Within last 5 or 6 years I believe) Not as good as their Devo Live 1980 DVD, but its still a lot of fun.
