Shorties (Devo, Jane Eyre, and more)

Devo's Jerry Casale talks to Louder than War about the band's career.

"Post Kent State I wanted to retaliate and do something. One choice was to have gone militant and joined the Weather Underground people and that would have been ended up in jail and death. I knew them and they were scary, crazy people and I didn't see it winning out in the end. I didn't want to go down that road so I took the creative approach, I started working on my art projects which were polarizing and creative and eventually that became Devo."
