be Stiff? - both were (at least for a moment, in Devo's case)

i feel a  musical resemblance here:

well i have mooted a bunch of times now that Blockheads = best Brit groove band since the Stones

and in a sense Devo are perhaps the greatest antigroove band of all time... but to antigroove actually requires being able to groove in the first place (no surprise in a way that Casale was schooled in blues of every kind)

and that one just purely rocks immensely

rearranging the grammar of rock with a radical stringency as surely as Gang of Four or Television

the full EP on which "Blockhead" (Devo's) first appeared

well you learn something everyday, i did not know that EP even existed
