520    "Finally, after all that waiting, The Future arrived in 
       1980. Ohio art-rockers Devo had plainly prepared with 
       their 1979 second LP Duty Now for the Future, and now it 
       was go time. Propelled by the new decade's high-tech, free
       -market, pre-AIDS promise, 1980's Freedom of Choice would 
       rocket what Devo co-founder Gerald Casale calls 
       hisalternate universe, hermetically sealed, alien band 
       both into the arms of the Earthlings and back to their 
       home planet in one scenic trip. Before an artistic and 
       commercial decline that resulted in a 20-year gap between 
       Devo's last two studio records, Freedom of Choice made 
       them curious, insurgent superstars, vindicated but 
       ultimately betrayed by the birth of MTV. Their only 
       platinum album represented the best of their unreplicable 
       code: dead-serious tricksters, embracing conformity in 
       order to destroy it with bullet-proof pop sensibility. 
       Through first-hand accounts from the band and musical 
       analysis set against an examination of new wave's 
       emergence, the first-ever authorized book about Devo with 
       a forward by Portlandia's Fred Armisen explores the 
       group's peak of success, when their hermetic seal cracked 
       open to let in mainstream attention, a legion of new 
       Devotees, and plenty of misunderstandings. Freedom of 
       Choice was the end of Devo innocence it turned out to be 
       the high point before the storm of a total cultural move 
       to the right, the advent of AIDS, and the press starting 
       to figure Devo out and think they had our number, says 
       Casale. Where everything changes."--Bloomsbury Publishing.
