i found out last night that someone i've known for over a year and have exchanged musical ideas with, who's at least 35 years old, had never heard of devo. i'd never considered that possibility.

existential dread?...or fun-weed?...hmmm...WHAT JAKE SAID!!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@coela: It's true that some people just haven't taken note of certain things, despite Devo's presence in pop culture and commercials from the 90s on. This does present an opportunity to enlighten them to Devo, and Mark Mothersbaugh's solo work (are they aware he did the Rugrats soundtrack and many others?)

I feel Bobby Vinton's worried whinging in "Mr. Lonely" (1964) was an influence on Terry Jones' delivery here.

Why am I craving pink lemonade?? Happy New Year, Scott!
Avatar 3:31pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, he was born and raised in poland, so certain things weren't there for him to be exposed to. i was still surprised though, given his knowledge of (mostly metal and 60s-70s pop, but some punk) music. anyway i will turn him onto it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

De-evolution is most likely a form of ongoing "evolution" itself, but towards something "less" and not as clear as advanced evolution. Some functional adaptation would need to be present to trigger either evolution or de-evolution.

Now Mothersbaugh probably emphasised de-evolution to highlight the absurdity of humanity's "de-evolution by choice" in many areas of society. (Freedom of choice--is what you got. Freedom from choice--is what you want!)

Avatar 4:02pm JakeGould:

The best thing I can ay about 2017 is it has forced me to eat better, control my drinking more and get more rest… Because I genuinely wake up each not knowing what shit might hit so I’d like to feel well and be coherent if/when something happens.

i keep forgetting i still haven't seen the new twin peaks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

BuRN is a good combo of metal consonants, along with an energetic destructive meaning.

"particularly" is an adverb, which even just that makes it non-metal...

Avatar 4:52pm coelacanth∅:

...so is that why my metal band, "Particularly Metal Burn" hasn't made it?
Avatar 4:58pm JakeGould:

These segments should be called, “Rush In Roulette” where a DJ rushes into the studio, picks out a pile of random LPs and just plays them.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Scott Williams:

checked it out, it's Yugoslav
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Belarussian, perhaps?

@coela: The first word just turns fans off. Maybe "Power Metal Burn" would be a more attractive name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Possibly Serbian/Macedonian? This could be South Slavic.
Ah, thanks Scott. Yugoslav era (I bet in the east of the country).

"Boob Oscillator"?

(which itself was influenced by Alan Vega.., same chord progression).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: Glad you had the chance to interact with a Makedonski in person then!
Avatar 5:11pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, i guess we should've stuck with out original name,"Scathing Ulfberht", but our manager, Don Henley, was keen on "Particularly Metal", and we insisted on adding the "Burn" at the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Scott Williams:

that Don Felder: not particularly metal
Avatar 5:15pm coelacanth∅:

oops i meant Don Felder.
...what's the difference?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm steve:

Scathing Ulfberht is a really good name
Avatar 5:19pm coelacanth∅:

maybe i can convince a friend, who really does have a metal band, to change its name to that. i won't say the name of his band, but it's a Particularly cheezy metal band name.
