K RONOMYTH 3.01: Warner Bros. whipped this one out first in anticipation of Freedom, and all was rightly wrong with the world again. A rhythm is superceded by a counter rhythm, our emotions are revealed to be a mixture of animal and automaton, and the result is stiffly satisfying in the old familiar ways. Devo’s was always an interesting concept of freedom; by revealing us to be slaves to chemical and biological urges we couldn’t control, we were liberated from resisting them. Soundgarden has also recorded a version of “Girl U Want” that plods along pointlessly, on the somehow still magically royalty-free YouTube.
