Devo - Recombo DNA

A double-disc set of demos and alternate versions, released by Rhino Handmade in a limited edition of 5000 (which, to a fan of albums published as cassettes in editions of 30, sounds hilarious) in 2000.

Hearty thanks for the Devo odds and ends. Mr. Hugh Cornwell of the Stranglers claimed them as a major influence, albeit not a blatantly obvious one. Devo presents perhaps the strongest case to the argument that post-punk was where "punk" genuinely began, shedding the string template of punk sound and look and opening the floodgates to the anything-goes ethos that was the real prize.
