DEVO: Freedom Of Choice, Use It Or Lose It!

Although I’ve been missing the recent reunion tours, I’m still pretty pumped about Devo and their return to active duty…

Something For Everybody, their first new studio album in 20 years is released on June 15, 2010 and I, for one, welcome them back.

They were on Jimmy Kimmel Live about a week ago and first got a peek-a-boo at their new blue Energy Domes (making the red ones of yore somehow obsolete) and their new molded matte gray plastic headpiece/masks.

I was happy to stumble upon the Club Devo website and Facebook pages where you can actively participate in the narrowing down of the song choices for their upcoming album,

Devo are all about focus grouping and surveys to make your experience more enjoyable. Why, Devo’s Scandavian statistician “Jacob” was even side-stage at Coachella, gauging audience reaction:

Jacob greets you when you go to the Song Survey site: http://songstudy.clubdevo.com/ and choose from the sixteen song snippets that stream on the site…they need twelve.

While you’re listening, Jacob listens along with you, takes a phone call and at one point enjoys a glass of milk…

And when you’re done, (and you give them all your data and a photo for their data mine!) they’ll show you photo collage of the voting data!

The Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube Channel has a JKL performance of another of the new DEVO songs, “What We Do”

  1. Hiya Paul, I just like about anything from the album: Q Are We Not Men? A We Are Devo! But the 2 stand out tracks for me are:` Jocko Homo` and `Mongoloid`. I also like the song `Whip it`, but it`s just a pity it ended up on so many TV adverts like Pringles,Twix and Swiffer.
