SYNTHESIZERS IN THE SAND V

It’s like living in a light bulb, with the leaves
Like filaments and the sky a shell of thin, transparent glass
Enclosing the late heaven of a summer day, a canopy
Of incandescent blue above the dappled sunlight golden
on the grass…

They are not men. They are cats.

In order to celebrate “Something for Everybody”, their first album in 20 years, DEVO hosted a nine hour listening party… for kittehs.

I wonder if we can get a giant blue energy dome for Sue to play on? Or wear?can has devo?

EDIT: So  DEVO is the Fishwicks’ favorite band. Our tongues are not in our collective cheek. (We are also dead serious in our appreciation for LCD cat humor.) Some favorites for the uninitiated (lamers):
