Material Issue trumps Devo
Last night I working on a task at my computer, and was playing some YouTube music videos in the background for ambiance. I ended up looking up some Material Issue videos -- and was reminded how much I enjoy their music.
Devo was my first "favorite band" (although I discovered The Cars and The Ramones at about the same time) -- but even though I really enjoy Devo (both their musicality and their quirkiness), I believe I like every single Material Issue song: no filler.
They have slow songs, and fast songs. And the lyrics are pretty good, too.
Sorry Devo. But you're still in my Top Five. :)
