Pretty much anything from their early years, up through the 'Oh, No! It's Devo' album. Favs would be Jocko Homo, Smart Patrol/Mr DNA, Gates of Steel.

You've made me realise how little I know about an influential band! I have a couple of Devo tracks on compilations and will have a look for the albums you mentioned, thanks Matt. Is there one you would recommend?

Start at the beginning, get Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and go from there.

... and then when you think you finally have a handle on Devo, check out : https://youtu.be/LmBawBVBRLw.  Here's the background on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Z_Listening_Disc.

Wouldn't say I was a particular new wave fan but do have a great pressing of a Lena Lovich 10 or 12" 45 lucky number! May have to dig it out tomorrow for a listen as not played for several years.

Whilst hardly a claim to fame she did go to my school (before me!) so never met her.

I feel a wave of nostalgia coming on!
