Overview

These self-proclaimed "spud boys" from the darkest recesses of Akron, Ohio, claimed to know the truth about de-evolution -- a theory of human disntigration that grows more prescient with each passing year. More important, however, the quintet chose to preach its gospel through a strain of sinister, robotic synth-rock that sounded utterly otherworldly when it burst upon the scene in the late '70s. Heck, songs like "Mongoloid" and "Jocko Homo" (the one with the unforgettable chant that gives this 1978 album its title) still sound like aliens had a hand in the mix. Devo's herky-jerky minimalism and radiation-suit stage wear may have given some onlookers the perception that they were only kidding -- which, occasionally (as on a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction"), they were. Still, the band's impact -- both on an increasingly synthetic music scene and a pop-culture Nostradamus level -- can't be underestimated.
