Devo – Come Back Jonee (1978)

The first Devo LP “Q: Are We Not Men? A: We are Devo” remains one of my all time favourites.

So many great tracks to choose from … from the definitive reading of the Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” through “Space Junk”, “Mongoloid” (killer bass line) and “Uncontrollable Urge”.

The best track of all has to be “Jocko Homo”, perhaps the closest post-punk ever got to a Bohemian Rhapsody …. not really thought through the parallels but, rest assured, they will be many and convincing.

However, I wanted to start with Come Back Jonee on the blog. Mainly because the twangy guitar reminded me of a chum’s recent comment on my B-52s “Give Me Back My Man” post (here) that without the vocals, the B-52s backing music could have been Devo ….. here is evidence to support this thesis.
