  2. RtG strikes while we are all asleep….. Sneaky….. I didn’t think you were that much of a Devo fan, or, do you just have “too much time on your hands”…… Welcome to the D-E-V-O fan club….. Now, let me look over all your answers and see if you might have missed something….. Might be able to salvage a negative point or two….. I saw Devo live on two different occasions….. Actually talked into it by a girlfriend, but, I did not regret it….. The music was just a small part of the stage show they put on…… You would have to had seen it to believe it….. It was great……

  3. Randalf: Don’t you ever sleep? You got all but #2. 9 pts for you, MR: I am interested how you are going to be able to spin this into Neg’s. BTW; Thanks for the subject for my next quiz. Styx.

  4. Mr. J-Do, a question on No. 2…… What performance are you referring to that is included in the video?…….

  5. The hats were plastic flower pots I believe.

    And they started as visual artists….which must explain the great videos and shows.

  6. According to my sources, The b/w film of the 1st kent state performance.

  7. BTW: I have no DEVOlution Magnetic Media/Digitalized Bytes and Bits (video) I look forward to talking and singing thru what U have sometime.

  8. #6 I was not as detailed in typing the question as i wanted to be, The artist that I was referring to was Neil Young. I have never seen this film, Devo played what was referred as “Nuclear Garbage men” MR: You got a copy?

  9. I know I have it on Beta and I’m fairly sure I have it on DVD….. Let me check and maybe we’ll get together and watch it over the week-end, J…….

    Actually, I’m not a big fan of the music of Devo, but they broke some “serious” ground for other performance artists such as Laurie Anderson and Blue Man Group. I was well prepared for this quiz because I read up on them after J.J.’s April quiz on “Dove, The Band Of Love”.

  11. Way t go Randalf, That is just what I want out of my quizzes for the community to investigate a artist and maybe put on an old recording that we maybe have forgotten that way we keep the music alive. Btw everybody # 2 is still up for grabs.

  12. J.J., you never did answer my question I made in Comment #4 concerning #2…… Maybe it’s time to give some hints?…. Nudge, Nudge…… eh?….

  13. Just my opinion. I think the Internet should not be used for these quizzes. Separate the wheat from the chafe (Almost Cut My Hair)

  14. I thought we all agreed by Community vote that the Internet was “off limits” for answers to the quizzes….. I know if I used the Internet, I would probably have the answer to #2 by now…… Find a book, make a trip to the library, call a friend, make a guess, etc., etc……. It’s a lot more educational and de-evolutional……

  15. #12 concerning your Comment #4 about Question #2. Look at comment #6.

  16. K folks, RTG gets 9 for this week, MR gets -20.
    #2 “The complete truth about De-volution.
    Remember only 2 left in this quarters quizzes.
    Hint: Brush up on your…………………… Bet ya thought I would huh.
