Sometime in my preteens I got my first tape recorder. It was a mono portable Panasonic thing. The first blank tape I ever bought was given to a friend and he recorded a handful Devo songs on it. I vaguely remember a live version of Freedom Of Choice. This may be it, I dunno. When I first heard The Pixies their guitar sound put me in mind of Devo and this tune in particular.

*PS (2 hours later)
It seems after some research that the tunes put to that tape must have been from the DEV-O Live EP. This had six tracks recorded in 1980 and released in 81. It spent 3 weeks at the top of the Australian singles charts.
