KROQ-FM Devotees Album (1979, US, new wave) 
Saturday, November 21, 2020, 05:40 PM - Music, - US, English
Q: ARE WE NOT DEVO?
A: WE ARE DEVOTEES!

This LP with Devo covers was compiled from tapes sent in by KROQ listeners during the summers of 1978 and 79. The contest was short of winners so Bronson and Foos did the Bakersfield group to pad it out.
It was this last band that made me visit Bakersfield (CA). But in the local bar no one had ever heard of the Boogie Boys.

1 Knife Lust - Shrivel Up
2 Jupiter - Mongoloid
3 The View - Uncontrollable Urge
4 The Firemen - Jocko Bozo
5 The Deadliners - Mongoloid
6 The Bakersfield Boogie Boys - Okie From Muskogee

Side two:
1 Lonnie And The Devotions - Jocko Homo
2 The Doguloids - Blockhead
3 The Touch Tone Tuners - Jocko Homo
4 Y-22 - Music Inspired By Space Junk
5 The Sordes - Mongoloid
6 Bohonian Plimquins - Gut Feeling
