Four decades after "the band of the future" originated out of Kent State following the 1970 shootings, the first authorized documentary on the notoriously press-shy Devo is nearing completion. But the creators of Are We Not Men?, now in post-production, have turned to Kickstarter in order to meet their September 2012 goal for Sundance and other festivals.
Devo, perhaps best known for "Whip It," which reached No. 14 on the Billboard Chart in 1980, has maintained a cult following for 40 years. And the band hasn't slowed down -- their latest album, Something For Everybody, was released in 2010.
According to co-founder Gerald Casale:
We're like the house band on the Titanic, playing as the ship goes down.
