Spuds, its hard to believe but some of us still haven't seen the "Monster Man" music video. Some of us are unable to purchase the "Monster Man" song.Some of us are wondering why the positive effects of globalism haven't yet been embraced by DEVO.
Why ? That's a good question. Probably because it's hard to be a DEVO fan outside the USA today. Yesterday too for that matter.
American internet streaming is filtered not to allow non-U.S citizens to view it. If you are in Europe and you want to watch Syfy to see the Monster Man making of episode - BAD LUCK !
Itunes U.S. won't allow you to purchase from its store if you don't sign in from an American server. Well, that wouldn't be a problem if the Itunes here had the song, but they don't.
The question is why can't DEVO release their own audio independently worldwide just like other artists such as NIN have been doing for years ? I was hoping the post-Warner DEVO would be more globally efficient. Reading the comments on DEVO's Facebook page, it seems a lot of other global DEVOtees are having the same problems.
At least Orchard were decent enough to stream the Monster Man audio from their Sound Cloud page so that EVERYBODY can hear it.
