Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Devo’s, “Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!”

I remember when they made their debut on Saturday Night Live back in 1978. They did their now familiar, quirky version of ‘The Stones, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.’ Watchers didn’t know if this was a musical guest or just another comedy sketch!

Well, 32 years later the band is still putting out records. I thought they smoked on Late Night with David Letterman yesterday. The played really well and Mark Mothersbaugh’s voice was as strong as ever. They’re new ‘get up’ is pretty cool too. :

Q:Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! was the band debut. It featured more wonderful songs like ‘Uncontrollable Urge, Jocko Home, Praying Hands’ and ‘ Mongoloid.’

It was a rockin’ record. And pretty darn fun. I like acts that try and do something different. And then come up with something good!

It was produced by Brian Eno and hit #78 on the Billboard Charts.
