DEVO : GATES OF STEEL [FREEDOM OF CHOICE, 1980]



“Επιλέγω” τη συγκεριμένη βερσιόν γιατί συνδυάζει την studio ηχογράφηση σε αξιοπρεπή ανάλυση, με στιγμιότυπα από live εκτελέσεις του “βιβλικού” track των Devo.
Προσωπικά, τέτοιο drive απο rhythm section δεν έχω ξανακούσει – ούτε πριν ούτε μετά από αυτό το τραγούδι.

I “chose” this particular version because it combines the
studio recording with fragments from various live performances of the “biblical” Devo track.
Personally, I ‘ve never heard again such drive from a rhythm section – neither before or after this one.

Twist away the gates of steel
Unlock the secret voice
Give in to ancient noise
Take a chance on a brand new dance
Twist away the gates of steel
Twist away
Now twist and shout
The earth it moves too slow
But the earth is all we know
We pay to play the human way
Twist away the gates of steel
A man is real
Not made of steel!
But the earth is all we know
We pay to play the human way
Twist away the gates of steel
The beginning was the end
For everything now
The ape regards his tail
He’s stuck on it
Repeats until he fails
Half a goon and half a god
A man’s not made of steel
Twist away
Now twist and shout
The earth it moves too slow
But the earth is all we know
We pay to play the human way
Twist away the gates of steel
A man is real
Not made of steel!
