Two devo facts i loved: 1: they got large ladies from their audience to gather round their gear to warm it up so it would work properly, 2: Pink Floyd gave them a synth that they were about to trash. _________________

I totally missed it. But... I got the only copies of the QotSA and TCV 10"s they had soooo... _________________
