The record shop near me sold the 1 copy they had, but I found this online!

Meh, the webcast isn't live after all. Devo is playing right now, but the webcast isn't until 11:00pm PST Sunday night. An extra 24 hour wait.  BOOO!!!

On a side note, I downloaded the dvd of their concert at the olympics and I noticed that Mark goes crazy shaking some giant gold pom poms during mongoloid. Remind you of anyone?

The student has become the master!

Re: New Devo 12" goes on sale tomorrow/New Devo Digital EP on the 20th

I think he's been doing that for awhile, not sure though

Re: New Devo 12" goes on sale tomorrow/New Devo Digital EP on the 20th

Yeah it's where Polysics got the Peach pie thing from, Devo have been performing mongoloid like that since around '96 I think?

I'm back from Tokyo BTW! Got my copy of the Absolute Polysics book! Incredible! If only I could read it!

Re: New Devo 12" goes on sale tomorrow/New Devo Digital EP on the 20th

I don't know how long they've been performing it live, but I do know that "Mongoloid" goes all the way back to their first commercial album.

Semper felicitas.

Re: New Devo 12" goes on sale tomorrow/New Devo Digital EP on the 20th

What he meant was how long devo had been using the pom poms in there preformance.

Just tested the video connection to see if I can capture some audio, and it seems like it'll be good for some audio!

Yeah, that's a great page!! Number five is special to me, because he got that after the show I saw them out. In katakana, you can see he mentions the 2008 North Carolina live. And that pedal was used in United, which is one of my favorite songs.....!! The person who gave me my book did a bit of translating and said that number 6 is 1st P that Hiro drew the covers for himself. And it was titled "The Polysics Show" instead. Very interesting!!


Oops.... um. This is off topic, haha. I do have some Devo and Polysics information I can add though. In one of my Polysics fan books (the one called "MySoleSound"), they have a setlist to the 8/11/08 concert where Poly headlined Devo.

Polysics played:
Sunnymaster
Social Fools
Tei! Tei! Tei!
PLUS CHICKER
Peach Pie on the Beach
SECRET AGENT MAN
WHICH!
I MY ME MINE
MY SHARONA
ROCKET
Coelakanth is Android
Electric Surfin' Go Go
BUGGIE TECHNICA

Devo played:
Opening Movie
That's Good
Going Under
Peek-A-Boo!
Girl U Want
Whip It
Secret Agent Man
Satisfaction
Uncontrollable Urge
Mongoloid
Jocko Homo
Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA
Gates of Steel
Devo Coporate Anthem (movie)
Freedom of Choice
Beautiful World (Booji Boy)

It says that Shizu wrote this up and the article that went with it, so I'm not sure if it was reported on her blog as well. But, here it is, making this post a bit more on topic. A little, hehe.

Well, the Coachella Devo webcast was an absolute nightmare. It came on an hour early, so anyone tuning in at the scheduled time got to see the last half of the last song. I will never chew 5gum again!

Re: New Devo 12" goes on sale tomorrow/New Devo Digital EP on the 20th

Seems like the Japanese release of the new Devo record will have a bonus track, which isn't shocking since the band has 4 bonus tracks left over.
