Few bands have mixed art, humor and new music as well as Devo. To some, the group from Akron, Ohio, was an absurd joke, with its flowerpot hats and spastic live shows. But to countless adoring fans, Devo remains the most memorable and innovative band of the new-wave movement, a status it earned with the release of its 1978 debut, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!. Now, the band has reunited to perform the groundbreaking album in its entirety.
