-Interviews with the Devo band members
-A rare 1980 Live Video of Devo
New wave geniuses who helped define an era with their quirky, futuristic, and revolutionary style are back, entertaining the Japanese crowds who love them as much today as they did 25 years ago. Devo have been through a lot over the years, developing their parody of humankind's plight of conformity in their theory of devolution after member Gerald Casale witnessed the Kent State killings of student protesters in 1970, but they haven't wavered in their innovative sounds and pioneering visuals. This DVD features backstage footage from the show, as well as Devo's shopping trip in Tokyo with some of their fans, and exclusive footage from 1981 that's never been seen before!
"From a stage super-heated by over-the-top, rock 'n roll cliche lighting, Devo faced a sea of Asian Gen X'ers in a 100 degree plus fahrenheit venue in the bowels of Tokyo, Japan. The crowd was swathed in bootlegged energy domes and Devo T's, mouthing the lyrics to songs we wrote when most of them were loading their diapers with UNi-colored poo. Maybe it was a "Beautiful World" after all!"
