CLASSIC ALBUM, Q: ARE WE NOT MEN? A: WE ARE DEVO!, DEVO

They came from Akron, Ohio, wore matching jumpsuits and had a sinister theory of devolution. Their debut album runs on rubber-punk guitars and even more sinister mechanized new wave beats.

CLASSIC ALBUM… ARMED FORCES, Elvis Costello and the Attractions

Costello’s third album is wound tight, full of paranoia and anger. The concept is personal politics; the original title was Emotional Fascism, and one of the songs is called “Two Little Hitlers.” The keyboard-driven sound of “Accidents Will Happen” helped define New Wave.
