You got me Spin. Shoulda known better than to argue Akron with you!

When I was @ KSU, floor legend had it we had casale's old dorm room in McDowell Hall.

I do know that Casale was also in 15-60-75 until he wanted to get all theatric and Bob Kidney shit canned the idea.

Remember the Waitresses?

The Casales are from Kent. Their family lives right across the street from where I grew up, down the hill from the Psycho House. Those guys were all gone by the time I came along, though.

I had friends who were "Lakers," SSS. We all went to elementary school together at Walls.

Necks are mighty red out in Brady Lake.

I got Jerry Casale's old Hot Wheels cars when I was a kid, his folks sent them over. :dingle:

Black Horse Tavern bayby. Don't get any more red neck in NEO.

If you ask me, once you go under that old railroad bride where Chicen manor used to be on 59, you may as well cross over into another dimention of Joe Conrad proportion.

You guys know Devo is still cutting albums. Errrr burnin' MP3's.

Their album form last year is one of their better ones. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVqESo4mFMs

Mark Mothersbaugh scores one of the hottest kid shows on TV. The guy has staying power. I listened to him play for Devo. My kids listened to him play for the Rugrats. Now my grandkids are glued to the set when Yo Gabba Gabba comes on (I knew I recognized that Mini Moog when I was babysitting them. Sure enough, he's even the artist on the show). Three generations.

I don't know how many TV series used Devo songs as their theme, and how many commercials used them.

People laugh at them for being one hit wonders (they never wanted to be top 40). They're laughing all the way to the bank.

Heyyyyy...

Where's Brothers in Arms? One of the top selling albums of all time?

The first album that sold more CD's than it did albums?

Yeah it had a couple hooks, it also had some of my favorite songs of all time. Including the title track.
