Just heard that Devo guitarist Bob Casale passed away on the 17th from a heart attack. Bob aged 61, was a founder member of the band with his brother Gerry and Mark and Bob Mothersburgh.
Not everybodys cup of tea I have seen Devo on quite a few occations and have never been disappointed.

always sad, but the thought sparked a memory of a mental night at the glasgow apollo, devo on their 'are we not men' tour, supported by (and my first contact with) doll by doll, who were turfed off the tour shortly afterward. a crowd of us acquired skateboard gear, from wee brothers, cousins etc, to go in style (yeh), except for B, who, in desperation, found a binbag behind the pub, that previously contained roasted chickens, turned it inside out and poked a hole for his head. it was rank, and funnily enough, we never felt crowded in a packed apollo.
devo were brilliant, yellow suits and all. the first album is a belter, but i always felt thereafter, they were on the road to mainstream. doll by doll - whole 'nuther story.
