Live clip of Devo playing their first show ever at Kent State in 1973. It's pretty striking to hear how 'normal' they started out. The band started as a sextet and featured Gerry Casale, Mark Mothersbaugh, Bob Lewis, Bob Casale, Rob Reisman, and Fred Weber.
Interesting fact: David Bowie was largely responsible for Devo getting signed and was supposed to be the producer of their debut album. Scheduling conflicts arose, however, and the band had to 'settle' for having Brian Eno produce the record.
