Devo from Ohio: their first 45
Well, then. Now you've heard everything, right? Well, Mary was a girl in one of my English classes, as I recall. I didn't hang around with her, else she'd have known that me and Becky and a ragtag band of no counts did indeed check Devo out when they played at the Midnight Movies on campus. I think they played after the movies, which really assured a captive audience. They were certainly different and a real gas. When Mary wrote asking me to do something, I took a cassette and press stuff to Peter Crowley, who immedately booked them at Max's. Then Mary sent some cool silkscreened posters and I took them over to Max's too. That's all! I got in free to the show and got a personally autographed 45 for my hard ass PR work. Seriously, I just delivered the goods, like any Ohio fan club prez would do for another Ohio fan club prez. The rest is history! Betcha didn't know! Ha!
