American new wave legends Devo will be performing their last-ever Australian appearances saying Goodbye to 50 years of De-Evolution. Recorded under the auspices of pioneering producer Brian Eno, 1978’s Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! was seen as a call to arms by some and became an underground hit. Others found Devo’s sound, imagery, and material threatening.
The band broke through to the mainstream with 1980’s Freedom of Choice, which contained the platinum-selling hit single, “Whip It”, and represented a peak in their songwriting. The video became an MTV smash, juxtaposing the band’s low-budget futuristic look against a down-home farm setting and hints of S&M.
Albums, New Traditionalists and Oh NO It’s DEVO! continued their 1980’s decade world touring success accompanied by the hit songs, “Beautiful World” and “That’s Good” respectively. In 1990 the band left the world of touring and recording to pursue film and TV projects.
