Artist: Are We Not Devo? We Are Not!
Songs: Uncontrollable Urge/(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction + Gut Feeling/(Slap Your Mammy) [Devo covers, except "Satisfaction" Jagger/Richards, arr. Devo]
Recorded at The Baby G, August 22, 2018.
Celebrating the fortieth anniversary of Devo's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! these local musicians didn't just throw together a band to cover the album — they fully inhabited the band and the songs. The members of First Base, Vanity Phase, and Tough Age not only nailed the sound, but had moves and costume changes. Hugely satisfying for the packed-in crowd, most of whom looked like they were there out of Devo fandom — so hopefully some of 'em will be inspired to check out the other stuff these fine players are up to.
[This was too successful to do just once, so the group is headlining a "Carbon Copy" night at Handlebar on Saturday, October 27th, with members of Leather Jacuzzi as The Stooges, Goosebump and members of Weaves + Blonde Elvis as Roxy Music, members of Slutcode performing Madonna and Digits + co. returning as Kraftwerk klones.]
