OK, Weird Nation: You helped fund the Kickstarter campaigns of Christeene and Mission Man. Ready to pony up for the next worthy weird pursuit?

This time around, the project looking for a little crowd-sourced scratch is a documentary about DEVO called Are We Not Men? Amazingly, this is the first feature-length documentary about the experimental Ohio band. The five-minute trailer on the Kickstarter page looks pretty cool. There’s lots of vintage footage of the band freaking out the normals (keep an eye out for Merv Griffin) and more recent stuff about their 2009-2010 comeback as the tongue-in-cheek embodiment of consumer-tested corporate rock.

The filmmakers have set themselves the rather lofty goal of raising $25,000 by Aug. 7th. As of this writing, they’ve managed to raise just over three grand. So go and give generously, won’t you? Think of it as casting a financial vote against that fucking Katy Perry movie.

Here’s that Kickstarter link again. Do your duty now…for the future! (I was going to insert a “Whip It” reference here, but that shit’s played out, don’t you think?)
