WHOOOOOA!!!!! DEVO FAN OVERLOAD, September 6, 2005 5/5 Stars
By Joseph E. Bruno (Gansevoort, NY United States)
Holy crap! I am blown away by this release. In 2001, owning all of this on a professionally released DVD for 12 bucks seemed like something that could only exist in fantasy. (And it did - hey we nerds fantasize about nerdy things!)
ATTENTION DEVO FANS: At the end of the concert, the band shows the video footage where general Boy tells Booji not to play in the giant machine thing, which inevitably squashes Booji's head. On "The Complete Truth..." DVD, we are told that the rest of the movie is lost. IT'S NOT!!! We get to see the whole thing, and hear a hilariously deformed Booji sing "Tunnel of Life."
And there's more! We get to see/hear more songs by "Dove" performed at the M-80 festival (plus we finally get an explanation of what the heck the M-80 festival was)!!!
And, oh yeah, there's a whole concert on here too! And it's Devo at their prime. I thought that they would be dumbing things down a bit because they were playing to the masses at the time. I was wrong. INSTEAD, it seems the masses were just more willing to accept Devo's quirky weirdness, and the young dudes give everything at this show - moreso than in their recent tours.
Good sound and audio, too, considering the rarity and age of this performance. I'd say it's way above any bootleg quality concerts I've ever seen, while it's (of course) not quite up to current standards in live dvd.
