Summary(This text has been automatically translated by Google translate)
While each generation enjoyed already retired, succeeded there in 2014 in order to dry eyes sing songs they some wrote. Songs about the transience of man and the decline of society. If you've said your entire professional life that humanity will de-evolve, it's pretty weird that you're still on stage after you're 60. The physical appearance of Devo has always been very important to the ominers and has lost some of its strength in 2014. The uniforms are too tight and the choreography is rusty. And yet the Americans convince on this DVD. In the year that band member Bob Casale passed away, the band went on tour to raise money for his family. To make the tribute even more powerful, only the oldest post-punk songs from the 1974-1977 period were played. So few hits on this DVD, but Devo in its purest form - with dirty guitar licks and analog synthesizers! - and beautifully recorded, too.

Pop als zelfstandig genre binnen de popmuziek is eigenlijk een kunstmatige categorie. Het omvat alles wat buiten de andere popsoorten valt, maar bezit daarmee toch min of meer eigen kenmerken. In pop ligt de nadruk op het liedje. Compositie, melodie en productie zijn belangrijker dan stijl en inhoud. Pop ligt goed in het gehoor en spreekt idealiter een massapubliek aan. Onder haar beoefenaars treffen we dan ook veel hitmakers aan, uiteenlopend van The Beatles tot Michael Jackson, en van Simon & Garfunkel tot de Spice Girls.
The term 'avant-garde' comes from the army. It is a name for the troops, who are the first to explore unknown territory. The term also appears in art and is used in both jazz and classical music as a name for the most daring styles. In pop music, avant-garde artists mock the laws of pop songs. Although an avant-garde composer prefers to work without rules, different rhythms and keys are the rule rather than the exception in his music. The sixties were a golden age for the avantgarde. Many rock bands improvised on it. Artists like Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart and Soft Machine romped with free jazz and atonal music. Avantgardists were also the first to pick up new instruments (synthesizers) and techniques (cut-up, sampling). more
Music that originated in the late seventies and early eighties, when synthesizers were used intensively for the first time to make pop music. The synthesizer music that takes disco and krautrock as a starting point is called electro. The early electro sound is at the basis of the later house version techno. At the beginning of the new millennium there is a revival of the old electro: the electroclash. The style variant in which synthesizers are used to colour in traditional pop songs is called synthipop. Bands such as Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran and Culture Club combined synthopop with fashionable clothing and make-up to create the substratum new romantic. Also synthopop got a big revival in the years zero with (mostly female) artists like Robyn, Lady Gaga and La Roux.
Overkoepelende term voor alle uit de punk en new wave ontsproten rockmuziek die zich buiten de mainstream om ontwikkelt, parallel aan bijbehorende subculturen. Omvat zeer uiteenlopende stromingen, waaronder britpop, gothic, grunge, industrial, lo-fi, noise en postrock. Ook new wave zelf valt doorgaans onder deze noemer. Als tegenhanger van 'mainstream' wordt alternative of indie (independent = onafhankelijk) gekenmerkt door meer artistieke en inhoudelijke intenties, boven commerciële bedoelingen en sterrenstatus. Dat begon met undergroundbands als The Velvet Underground, The Doors en The Stooges die in de sixties hun eigen, meer persoonlijke invulling begonnen te geven aan popmuziek. Via artrock en pubrock barstten in 1977 punk en new wave los. Niet alleen de energie en het straatgevoel, maar ook het D.I.Y. (do it yourself) denken bleven hangen.

"Are We Not Men? We Are Devo! "This cry introduced the men Devo (a corruption of de-evolution) himself late seventies. This Q & A choir from the cult hit Jocko Gay, is as effective as a slogan from a nasty detergent advertisement. Art and commerce go from the start hand in hand with the American new wave band. Since Devo originally intended as artists' and experimented a lot with technology, the quintet was fully prepared for the emergence of example, MIDI, synthesizers and video. Their first album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! was produced by Brian Eno and was largely filled with guitar music. From that moment, the focus shifted increasingly to an album electronics. The song Whip It (1980) was one of the first MTV hits thanks to the then fashionable production and good clip. The black humor, social criticism and gloom were many listeners and critics did not understand and the band gradually disappeared from the scene. Members of Devo then orchestrated video clips (such as "I'll Stick Around" Foo Fighters) and made music for films and drawing. Since 1996 Devo is back regularly on tour and released in 2010 the album Something For Everybody out. more
