Are We Not Men? We Are Devo!

Devo • LP


“Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!” is the debut album by Devo. It was originally released in 1978 on Warner Bros. in the US and on Virgin Records in Europe.

In 1977, David Bowie and Iggy Pop received a tape of Devo demo songs. Both Pop and Bowie, as well as Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, expressed interest in producing Devo’s first release. Eventually, Eno was chosen to produce the album at Conny Plank’s studio located near Cologne in West Germany. The band were flown to Germany in February 1978. Bowie helped Eno produce the record during weekends. Since Devo was without a record deal, Eno paid for the flights and studio cost for the band, confident that the band would be signed to a record contract. In return for his work on the album, Eno asked for a share of any subsequent deals.

Gerald Casale was not present for the first day of recording, as he had missed the flight. With their bassist missing, the group spent the first day playing with Eno, Bowie, Holger Czukay and Dieter Moebius. The recording sessions were a source of frustration for Eno and Devo. Eno found the band unwilling to experiment or deviate from their early demonstrations of recorded songs. After conflicts arose between the group and Eno, David Bowie was brought in to remix the album.

For sale is a French pressing with alternate cover art (as opposed to the drawing of the golfer). Insert is included, everything is used but in great shape.
