Devo: Social Fools: The Virgin Singles 1978-1982

Album Review

Archive mischief from America’s premier disco-punk Dadaists.

Contemporaries of Talking Heads, Pere Ubu and The B-52s, Midwestern avant-punk pranksters Devo were a conceptual art critique of dumbed-down consumerist America, whose subversive anti-pop parodies proved so catchy that they eventually had no choice but to became a real pop group. Corporate capitalism will eat itself, every time.
