Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! is the debut studio album by the American new wave band Devo. It was originally released in August 1978 on the Warner Bros. label (Virgin Records in Europe. Produced by Brian Eno, the album was recorded between October 1977 and February 1978, primarily in Cologne, Germany. Billboard chart and No. 12 on the UK Albums Chart.

A: We Are Devo! The first studio album by Devo that started off a chain of successful albums that made Devo a big time band. Devo also got onto the map with this album. Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! Q&A. Producers Brian Eno. Writers Bob Mothersbaugh, Gary Jackett, Gerald Casale & 3 more.

A: We Are Devo! was a seminal touchstone in the development of American new wave. Q: Are We Not Men also revived the absurdist social satire of the Mothers of Invention, claiming punk rock's outsider alienation as a home for freaks and geeks. While Devo's appeal was certainly broader, their sound was tailored well enough.

A: We Are Devo! is its authority: Devo presents their dissociated, chillingly cerebral music as a definitive restatement of rock & roll’s aims and boundaries in the Seventies. The band’s cover version of Satisfaction, for instance, with its melody line almost completely erased and the lyrics delivered in a yelping, droogy chant to mechanical rhythms, at first comes across as an intentional travesty, a typical New Wave rejection of the oldfart generation. The same could be said for the whole album. Yet all of these influences are flattened into an arid, deliberately fragmented science-fiction landscape. There’s not an ounce of feeling anywhere, and the only commitment is to the distancing aesthetic of the puton.

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! is the first album released by the American new wave music band Devo. This album was produced by Brian Eno, recorded mostly in Cologne, Germany and released in the . Records company in 1978. It reached number 12 on the UK album charts and number 78 on the .

Album of the Day. Devo. Tuesday, August 28, 2018. Produced by Brian Eno, Devo's debut, Q: ARE WE NOT MEN? A: WE ARE DEVO!, was playfully subversive from the smiling image of pro golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez on its cover to the herky-jerky version of (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction in its grooves. Though the principles of de-evolution would be further described on future releases, the Ohio quintet lay the groundwork for their skewed vision of reality on such songs as Mongoloid and Jocko Homo

A: We Are Devo!, the debut album by Devo is released. Produced by Brian Eno, it is recorded at Conny’s Studio in Köln, Germany and Different Fur Studios in San Francisco, CA from October 1977 - February 1978.
