Ohio:Songs, Volume Three
Photo by: Allan Tannenbaum Freedom of Choice/Is what you've got Freedom from choice/Is what you want Listen to Freedom of Choice (Go! Buy the Rekkid!) Yesterday wasn't intentionally political (and was a somewhat forgotten song). Today is intentionally political, and the song is less forgotten (hell, Nirvana covered it for crying out loud). Devo were from Akron, like the Black Keys and Lebron James and Goodyear tires. You knew them, of course. They wore flower pots on their heads and moved around like robots. Kraftwerk's fashion sense without the droning and the synths (sorta). TMBGITW is calling me for dinner, so I gotta split. Go, buy a Devo record. No collection is complete without one.
