Music Journalist EVIE NAGY
in conversation with AMY GENTRY
about Devo's Freedom of Choice (33 1/3)
Devo fans! Join us tonight as music journalist Evie Nagy discusses one of their pivotal albums, Freedom of Choise. Propelled by the new decade's high-tech, free-market, pre-AIDS promise, 1980's Freedom of Choice would rocket what Devo co-founder Gerald Casale calls his "alternate universe, hermetically sealed, alien band" both into the arms of the Earthlings and back to their home planet in one scenic trip.
