I saw them in Tempe back in the day and reckon "Satisfaction" is one of the best covers ever! I'm a Spudboy.

Hi mac,

I lived in Tempe near the campus in the mid 70's. Did you ever party at Minder Binders?

Hi B L T - I remember that place (barely)! I was in Phoenix for a couple of years - saw some great shows in Tempe - Gentle Giant, The Tubes even Spyro Gyra was good back then...

I was just curious. I figured if you spent some time in Tempe you probably knew Minder Binders.

Makes sense they'd do a song about Romney's dog. They hit the charts with a song named after a dog breed: Whippet. :-)

Duty now for the future. Be happy or not.

Quite disappointing...I never thought DEVO would actually get mired in partisan crap. They've definitely gone down in stature in my eyes. I always thought they could espouse their views without "taking a side" in a current election.

Can we say "desperation" for attention?

Sad.

It's satire, and if it has a political edge to it which offends some people, tough luck for them. You shouldn't apologize. People like B. Rogers should apologize for being so narrow and uptight in their outlook.

Jerry witnessed the shootings at Kent State and some of the victims were friends of his, according to the Giffels/Dellinger biography. Of course they're political, albeit in a devolved manner.

Strangely, I wasn't a fan of the new album. Not sure why because I even liked Smooth Noodle Maps.

I think because it sounded like so much other synth pop of the time, and that they were on the sinking ship Enigma, Smooth Noodle Maps gets the short shrift. Brilliant version of "Morning Dew" on there. Really menacing sound, twenty-two years on.

Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. This is General Boy saying "Bombs away."

Starman...I don't think you should apologize at all for starting this thread. I've always loved DEVO and I just stated my personal opinion that I thought they were *above* getting partisan. I always assumed they were probably liberal...but writing a song that is so specifically partisan is not something I would have expected.

Just my .02.

B. rogers says:
Saying that I should "apologize" because I don't care for songs that are specifically partisan in their content is the very definition of being "narrow and uptight in their outlook". We all have personal tastes and should never have to apologize for them. I never criticised the OP for starting the thread, and your response is the only one that's been reactionary.

I deleted my prior response to Jonathan, because I *devolved* into name-calling. I came back a little later with a cooler head, thankfully.

Not to stir things up here. More of a question, actually. Any opinions on the all-but-in-name album they did as Jihad Jerry and the Evildoers? It's on the stack at home, that's been growing the last four years, sad to say. Maybe I'll have time to listen to these when I finish the PhD work (yeah right)!
