Booji Boy Breaks It Down

Krikey, the best 9 minute experience I've had in a few days...One of the most unlikely collaborations of all time, Neil Young and Devo, is really one of the best things I've seen and heard in ages...and it was made in 1982. A segment from the film, The Human Highway starring and co-directed by Neil Young under his pseudonym Bernard Shakey. Dean Stockwell co-directed the film and acted along with Russ Tamblyn, Dennis Hopper, and the post-punk and new wave band Devo. Included is an unusual collaborative performance of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" by Devo and Neil Young with Booji Boy singing lead vocals and Young playing insanely brilliant lead guitar.

too bad that Neil pulled this only a few hours after it went up. it might have been the best thing he ever did...he's trying to protect his work, but heck, how do you sell your work if you don't let people know about it?
