This vintage band tee is dedicated to the new wave group Devo, in honor of their fifth studio album called Oh, No! It's Devo. It's truly stood the test of time, capturing that cool 1980s charm with a sporty jersey style, soft poly cotton, and lovely topstitching. Very comfy and nice to look at.
This era of music marked Devos evolution into synth-pop and electronic, giving less of the the guitar laden sounds of their prior works. The record was produced by the legendary Roy Thomas Baker, best known for his work with bands like Queen and the Cars.
Devo promoted this album with awesome music videos for tracks like "Time Out for Fun", "Peek-a-Boo!", and "That's Good". These videos showcased them performing in front of a blue screen as relevant imagery projected in the background. It was a big transition from the band's narrative style, which had been used in the past, and intended to prepare fans for the different direction they were taking with their music.
Devo's roots date back to 1973 in Akron, Ohio. They caught people's attention with an eclectic blend of kitsch sci fi themes, deadpan humor, and satirical social commentary. Critics were harsh in calling the band both fascists and clowns, but they used it as inspiration for the album Oh, No! It's Devo. This record was their answer to "what would an album made by fascist clowns sound like?"
