Watched lots of vids of Voivod at Hellfest....looked like a killer show. Just sad I cannot make Brutal Assault in August.

Hey All! Had to postpone Eric of the New Bomb Turks today, but will be taping him next week. Any questions, post today please! At 1:30 I will start my homage to Alan Myers, drummer of DEVO who passed away... sigh Thanks for tuning in!

Hey, are you gonna play Govt. Issue's "Vanity Fare", the live version from their album Complete History vol.1 this week?? Huh? Huh?
Avatar 12:50pm Cecile:

Pi, are you going to that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Rich in Washington:

I once saw NBTs in the mid-nineties, on some big huge bill sponsored by a local mainstream 'alternative' station.
All the bands slagged each other on stage. I'd never seen anything like it in all my years of going to punk shows. Oh, I've seen one or two bands talk smack about each other but this one, the hostility in the air between bands was so thick, you could cut it with a knife.
Most of the bands were amazing, Lunachicks, NBTs, Rev. Horton Heat and more but the headliner was then-pretenders to Green Day's dubious Retail Punk throne, Hagfish, who were universally reviled by audience and bands alike.
  12:52pm mb:

Just convinced the pipefitters next door to turn off WDHA and put on WFMU. Productivity doubled.

Devo were never the same again without Alan.

You should staple the living hell out of a paper doll fashioned in said PM's image.
Avatar 1:43pm dc pat:

I use to try to drum along with Devo and found it irritatingly hard.
Avatar 1:45pm Cheri Pi:

it's so awesome to see the full drum kit in their old performance vids- expecting a drum machine but getting a face full of sticks instead.
Avatar 1:46pm Cheri Pi:

Slap yer MAMMY!!!!

I just threw PM out the window along with everyone else that works here...
Avatar 1:47pm dc pat:

"who works here" should have said...hope Ike isn't around...
  1:48pm Vincent Priceless:

without doubt Alan's drumming was as much a part of Devo's signature sound as anything else, and probably even more so, actually, at least for me. PP! Great trib. D.

atta boy P@!
Avatar 1:52pm Chris from DC:

Oh yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

These are good selections to spotlight Alan's drumming.
The Hardcore Devo albums were just reissued on vinyl this month.

@ dc pat - try this next time:

Avatar 1:53pm KP:

Avatar 1:53pm dc pat:

Yeah, Uncontrollable Urge is a showcase for Alan drumming. ANd this is the goddam song that was so hard to play along with.
  1:53pm ian:

this set is saving my life. I am actually freelancing at MTV right now blasting this in the edit suite

Just Brilliant.
Avatar 1:56pm Cheri Pi:

Avatar 1:58pm Droll:

So many underplayed/forgotten loud shots from the big spud gun... Such inventive beats by Alan, and so well executed! There isn't any straight-4 time anywhere, and it works because he's listening! A drummer that listens!
  1:58pm ian:

Its sort of ironic that MTV and devo really had some synergy in the old days but now I am here working on a reality show about teen blog celebs.. de evolution is real as FUUUCK
Avatar 1:58pm Cecile:

Devo could not lampoon classic rock as well as they did without Alan's precise drumming.
Avatar 1:59pm Cheri Pi:

precisely C!
Avatar 1:59pm dc pat:

love Praying Hands.
Avatar 1:59pm PKNY:

This set proves I have way too few Devo records in my collection. I need to rectify that ASAP.
Avatar 2:00pm Cecile:

ian, I think there should be an MTV3, you know music videos all the time? Because MTV2 doesn't show them. and VH1 Classic is starting to get bad, too.
  2:00pm Fred:

Hell Yeah!
  2:01pm Vincent Priceless:

@Droll - Amen to that! @ian - LMAO here.

dcp, I think curation can be a nice thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One Devo song I like is "Beautiful World." Did Alan play drums on that one?
Avatar 2:06pm Cheri Pi:

Alan Myers ain't nothin' to fuck with.
Avatar 2:07pm Cecile:

yes, Ken.
  2:07pm Vincent Priceless:

@Ken - yes he did.
  2:08pm Steve-O:

Hey Diane, great show so far today! R.I.P. Alan Myers, though. =(
Avatar 2:08pm Chris from DC:

Duty Now has Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA going for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Outstanding....thanks for the info. If I don't hear it in FMU in the near future, I'll seek it out on the internet.
Avatar 2:09pm Cheri Pi:

I was just going to say the same thing, he's like the lead singer of the band. except he sings drums
  2:10pm Vincent Priceless:

how's about THAT'S PEP??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Rich in Washington:

I suspect that some of the material on the Hardcore comps aren't as old as they say they are - which I suspect is due to them not wanting Warner/Virgin to have ownership of them.
  2:10pm common:

Yea, Chris! Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA!!! with you.
Avatar 2:12pm WaveyDavey:

They stole Ken and Andy's theme song. Oh Noooooos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Rich in Washington:

@Diane: Duty Now seems to be the best overall album in my opinion, too. Seems to have the weirdness of their pre-Eno stuff but still rocks plenty hard.
Avatar 2:12pm Diane Kamikaze:

Don't worry Smart Patrol Mr. DNA (and Ms. Kamikaze) is coming up! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Mike East:

damnit! I was just listening to efd's Devo tribute which I missed last night...only to miss Diane's Devo tribute this afternoon. I should just live in the present, man.
Avatar 2:14pm Cecile:

I have a really soft spot for Freedom of Choice
Avatar 2:14pm Chris from DC:

I saw them on the Freedom of Choice tour, so yeah Cecile, me too.
Avatar 2:15pm dc pat:

me too, thumbs up for Freedom of Choice
Avatar 2:15pm Cecile:

I saw them on New Traditionalists.
They were great, too.
  2:16pm common:

devo's satisfaction and polvo's mexican radio are my two favorite pop covers. so good. made it their own.
Avatar 2:17pm Cecile:

I saw them on SNL with this song. Scared the crap out of me, and at the same time, they were intriguing.
Avatar 2:18pm Diane Kamikaze:

Saw them on Duty Now/ Freedom of Choice/ New Traditionalists and 2x in the last 5 years. Always great performances. So outside the realm of a "live music show"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Rich in Washington:

I completely lost track of Devo, post Oh No in 1982, although I met them at a Tower in-house thing in like 1985 or so.
Devo was my first ever rock concert. I saw them on the New Traditionalists tour and then the Oh No tour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Wretch:

@Cecile - I had the same SNL experience. When they were shaking on the ground to shed their jumpsuits? Yikes!
  2:21pm ian:

whoaaa deep cuts!
Avatar 2:21pm Cecile:

And that whole DEVO chant? Mind-blowing.
Avatar 2:22pm Cecile:

and a great Mothersbaugh vocal too

So I would have only been six.
  2:27pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Questlove from The Roots sent out a Vine yesterday with a video clip he said was the black answer to Devo. Called Ozone. You would think they would at least carve energy fro-domes but just plain Afros and weird glasses.

Oh Alan....
Avatar 2:30pm Cecile:

I was, uh, 17. And it still freaked me out
  2:31pm ian:

hard to imagine anyone drumming this tight but hard but subtle all at the same time now. Hell they cant even program drum machines to sound this tight anymore..
Avatar 2:32pm Cecile:

Oh, man, this is a great one.
  2:32pm Vincent Priceless:

oh man....what about "Love Without Anger"?? LOL
Avatar 2:32pm Cheri Pi:

Now I think that Alan was the greatest drummer of alll time.
  2:33pm Ryan:

Love Snowball
Avatar 2:34pm Cheri Pi:

Devo was one of the first "rock bands' I was exposed to as a kid. so glad it wasn't Menudo or Backstreet Boys. It's good to be born in the 70's.

  2:38pm common:

cheri pi: I agree. I grew up in a tiny town in the 70s and i remember seeing devo spray painted on stop signs and then my punk rock mentor filled me in. good stuff.
Avatar 2:39pm dc pat:

oh man, Eastern PA people: remember when every freakin sign around Philly for Devon had the "n" scratched out? Amazing.

Blockhead has 11/8 timing, if we're talking about drumming.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

@Cecile, @Wretch: Ditto here. the SNL appearance was rather disturbing/entertaining (disturbtainment?). I also saw them on a local PBS show, a feature about them, with people expressing outrage at thier theories, image. That also shocked me in a way no punk rock band was ever able to match.

almost as tough as drumming odd time signatures is singing over them....for me, anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

Devo was the gateway drug for me. All my musical explorations through the 70s/early 80s were about finding bands as weird as Devo.

New Traditionalists was my first LP by these guys. Got it when it was new, 1981, then had to go back & get the history. Great discoveries.
