Phil 'n' the Blanks!

Back in the late seventies and early eighties, there was a group in Chicago called "Phil 'n' the Blanks. They got lumped in with New Wave, but they wre mostly just a lot of fun. I got to see them once, at Chicagofest, a summer festival the City of Chicago used to host at Navy Pier in the late seventies and early eighties.

Phil 'n' the Blanks were one of the first groups to use videos. A few days ago, my friend Dan left an excited message that someone had posted the video for their very funny song "Vi-Sectomy." I've posted it for all to enjoy.

I think you have found Devo's missing contribution to The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack.

My husband was not quite moved to song by his vasectomy. Each to his own.
