New wavers Devo to perform 1978 album in London

LONDON (Reuters) - American new wave band Devo will perform their debut 1978 album “Are We Not Men?” in full for the first time at a concert in London in May, their publicist said on Friday.

The best-selling album, whose full title is “Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!,” was produced by Brian Eno and features the band’s stripped-down version of the Rolling Stones hit “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”

The band from Akron, Ohio, are known for their experimental music videos, absurdist lyrics and theatric costumes.

The one-off performance will be at the London Kentish Town Forum on May 6.

Other songs on the album include versions of both sides of the band’s first single, “Mongoloid” and “Jocko Homo.”
