Devo Pity You
New Traditionalists Warner Records 1981

This LP was meant as a musical and lyrical rebuke to the success (and clueless new fans) brought on by the hit single "Whip It". "Opening cut "Through Being Cool" is Devo laying all that aside.

The Raincoats We ThRee 2009

About this song, from Ana da Silva: “There is a scene in Who Is Poly Styrene, set among the grocery store aisles, where Poly is pushing a shopping cart beneath fluorescent lights, grabbing up products… it is the industrial Wasteland of late capitalism. ‘I remember distinctly thinking that her music sounded a bit like fairytales, but in a consumerist society. Suddenly it came to me. This is like a fairytale in the supermarket.’”

Look. I just got out of the hospital and they suggested I listened to some nice, relaxing music to soothe my blood pressure. Is that not going to happen tonight?
Julio P. (host) 10:04:42 PM
Nope. And if you really just got out of the hospital I hope you are a-okayu
Julio P. (host) 10:05:00 PM
Although this is relaxing to me, so...

Just chugging an energy drink here WOOO
Leslie Schmidt 10:19:02 PM
By chance, do you have any Lycia?
Julio P. (host) 10:19:40 PM
Gonna have to dig for that one...
Leslie Schmidt 10:19:51 PM
Those energy drinks are LAME-O!
Julio P. (host) 10:20:14 PM
Bama Dan 10:22:08 PM
Look, you two...it's an hour later here in Bama. If I can do this without coffee or lame-assed energy drinks, so can you!
Leslie Schmidt 10:23:03 PM
Just wanted you to know that I am listening & loving your program! Thank you, Julio!
Julio P. (host) 10:26:00 PM
But you're probably high on painkillers from the hospital!
Julio P. (host) 10:26:10 PM
Thanks, Leslie! I appreciate yout support
Bama Dan 10:26:28 PM
Well, they help.
Julio P. (host) 10:29:40 PM
We all get by with a little help from our friends
Bama Dan 10:30:20 PM
Makes me a little grumpy, though.
Julio P. (host) 10:30:42 PM
Eat some prunes.
Bama Dan 10:30:49 PM
Will do.
Julio P. (host) 10:31:01 PM
NOTE: this is not intended as medical advice
Bama Dan 10:31:13 PM
Leslie Schmidt 10:32:06 PM

Julio P. (host) 10:32:21 PM
why not? we already established this is not medical advice
Bama Dan 10:32:28 PM
Just as an aside, other than "Red" King Crimson, do you normally play Prog?
Julio P. (host) 10:33:01 PM
Not really, no. I hate Rush
Bama Dan 10:33:12 PM
Ha ha. Too late! Have already downed a handful...
Julio P. (host) 10:33:14 PM
Specifically, I hate Geddy Lee's vocals
Bama Dan 10:33:51 PM
Yeah. Even though I was a a Prof addict in the 70s, I never got into Rush...
Bama Dan 10:34:05 PM
Julio P. (host) 10:35:14 PM
My dad had some Emerson Lake and Palmer LPs when I was a kid. Didn't care for it then
Leslie Schmidt 10:35:24 PM
Mosquito Man, Gaddy Lee
Leslie Schmidt 10:36:09 PM
I saw ELP when I was 14 in NYC
Bama Dan 10:36:39 PM
Oh nice! I saw ELP at Oakland Colliseum in the late 70s. I have a love hate relationship with them.
Julio P. (host) 10:36:49 PM
I love me some Krautrock. That's kinda proggy, no? Also went through a heavy Tool phase. They were influenced by King Crimson. So...
Bama Dan 10:38:37 PM
I still love the LP "Trilogy".
Leslie Schmidt 10:38:40 PM
Julio, how 'bout some Rammstein? My mom really liked them!
Julio P. (host) 10:39:36 PM
I don't think I have anything Rammstein!
Bama Dan 10:41:35 PM
Look. Don't you have any Bertie Higgins? This music is a little jarring, and I think I need a nerve pill...
Julio P. (host) 10:44:11 PM
What about Climax Blues Band?
Julio P. (host) 10:44:53 PM
With a little Jim Croce to wash it all down
Bama Dan 10:44:58 PM
No. THIS is what the doctor ordered.
Bama Dan 10:45:07 PM
Ha ha!
Bama Dan 10:45:21 PM
Solid Gold is perfect.
Leslie Schmidt 10:46:16 PM
LOVE Gang of Four! Saw them at U of A ballroom with REM ,back in 1980 something
Leslie Schmidt 10:46:55 PM
Great tune, Julio!
Bama Dan 10:48:50 PM
Envious that you saw them back then, Leslie. What a great era for Go4.
Julio P. (host) 10:49:25 PM
I wasn't even born yet!
Bama Dan 10:51:17 PM
I did see REM for FREE at UCLA in 1982. (But never saw Gang of 4.)
Leslie Schmidt 10:52:07 PM
That was a great show. I am so grateful for Julio and his fabulous show! And there will be no comments from Julio's peanut gallery! Smart arse!
Leslie Schmidt 10:52:35 PM
Wasn't born yet, hahaha

Julio P. (host) 10:53:47 PM
Leslie Schmidt 10:57:43 PM
Julio, I appreciate you! You have turned me on to bands that I would never have heard of!
Julio P. (host) 10:58:20 PM
Thanks! I keep discovering new music - new to me anyway - so I will likely never run out of tunes to play here
Leslie Schmidt 10:58:42 PM
Thanks for the Devo! Saw them also & no one was there!
Julio P. (host) 10:59:12 PM
I saw them at the Rialto and everyone was there. How times change
Leslie Schmidt 11:00:13 PM
I also saw Joe Jackson and no one was there
Leslie Schmidt 11:00:55 PM
What year did you see Devo at Rialto?
Julio P. (host) 11:02:42 PM
Oof. 10ish years ago?
Leslie Schmidt 11:04:10 PM
Trying to remember where the hell I was. How about some Suburban Lawns, Julio
Julio P. (host) 11:04:26 PM
If I have time!
Leslie Schmidt 11:05:58 PM
Okay, thanks! Peace, Julio! Take care. Until next time!
Julio P. (host) 11:06:13 PM

Julio P. (host) 11:16:12 PM

Leslie Schmidt 11:17:45 PM
GREAT! PIL! Great tune! It's Johnnie with yet another rotten day!
Ed Kuklinski 11:18:36 PM
Haha! I was just enjoying your show. A question greeting? Another rotten day indeed Leslie

Typed Hi Ed? instead of Hi Ed!. I'm not questioning you. I'm no detective
Leslie Schmidt 11:20:14 PM
I love, Love,LOVE JOHNNIE!
Ed Kuklinski 11:20:17 PM
don't play watching the detectives, although that's arguably part of punk rovk history
Julio P. (host) 11:20:45 PM
I LOVE me some Elvis COstello. Lyrically, his first two albums rival any other punk ditties.
Julio P. (host) 11:21:01 PM

Ed Kuklinski 11:22:59 PM
that's a great song
Leslie Schmidt 11:24:15 PM
Jah Wobble! Betrayal! Julio, I haven't heard Saccharine Trust on the radio since the 80's!

Leslie Schmidt 11:25:04 PM
Ed, have a drink, sweetie
Ed Kuklinski 11:25:20 PM
Leslie Schmidt 11:31:46 PM
Julio, thanks again for another fabulous show! Goodnight and be happy & healthy!
Ed Kuklinski 11:32:00 PM
Can you play Autistic Behavior? Heard them for the 1st time today evn tho they were on the verge of signing with Alternative tentacles, google algorithms are getting better at finding me
Julio P. (host) 11:32:32 PM
Well that's going to mess with the Google search algorithm
Bama Dan 11:34:47 PM
Loved the first two PIL albums.
Bama Dan 11:35:12 PM
And Flowers of Romance, too.
Julio P. (host) 11:35:57 PM
Flowers is severely overlooked
Leslie Schmidt 11:42:01 PM
Australians in Europe, hahaha!
Leslie Schmidt 11:44:03 PM
And, British people in hot weather
Ed Kuklinski 11:44:14 PM
What's this about Australians? The Saints? Midnight Oil? Amyl and the Sniffers?
Julio P. (host) 11:44:54 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:45:29 PM

Julio P. (host) 11:46:58 PM
Julio P. (host) 11:47:22 PM
Bama Dan: keepin' it real
Ed Kuklinski 11:47:56 PM
the australians thing goes back to leslie, i think, i just jumped on board
Bama Dan 11:50:02 PM
Yes, I know she mentioned it, but I'm not sure what it has to do with anything?
Julio P. (host) 11:50:17 PM
Nothing. We've gone crazy!
Bama Dan 11:50:27 PM
Pretty much.
Julio P. (host) 11:50:28 PM
It's all very Dada
Ed Kuklinski 11:50:30 PM
There's a lot of australian punk rock, that would make for a great show Julio, birthday party and the saints would be a start
Julio P. (host) 11:50:51 PM
I can do an Australian set next week...
Leslie Schmidt 11:50:58 PM
Getting depressed again. Show is almost over...
Julio P. (host) 11:51:23 PM
You can listen to last week's show afterward!
Bama Dan 11:51:56 PM
It does sound like Nick Cave.
Julio P. (host) 11:52:11 PM
I know! I don't know how to feel about that
Bama Dan 11:52:52 PM
"Lo siento mucho?!?" LOL
Julio P. (host) 11:53:15 PM
Bama Dan 11:53:26 PM
Ed Kuklinski 11:53:56 PM
Leslie Schmidt 11:54:03 PM
I was talking about The Fall, British People in Hot Weather and Australians in Europe! No need to play any Australian music!
Ed Kuklinski 11:54:35 PM
Leslie Schmidt 11:55:11 PM
The only Australian music that I want to hear is Nick Cave
Ed Kuklinski 11:55:39 PM
Amyl and the Sniffers!
Julio P. (host) 11:55:52 PM
