They Are Devo

Devo's 2007 European Invasion Tour      11/05/07

They Are Devo

Arkon misfits Devo are to stage their first European tour for 15 years with dates in Spain, Italy and the UK. The cult US art rockers hit the Sonar festival in Barcelona on Saturday June 16, followed by gigs in Brighton, London, Dublin, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
Then it’s over to Italy for the last leg of the tour which finishes up in Pordenone at the end of June.

<They Are Devo
Although slightly portlier than you may remember them, Devo’s influence on electronic music is undeniable. Their Eno produced album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo, came as a novel interlude against a backdrop of late 70’s New Wave and they were quickly snapped up by the legendary Stiff Records in the UK.
Their acutely stylised dress sense and videos caught the attention of the fledgling MTV and singles like Jocko Homo, Mongoloid and Whip It secured their position as a band with an eccentric and slightly dark agenda. Their jerky robotic cover of the Stones’ Satisfaction is a genre defining stroke of genius.
