Tripping Daisy weren’t around long. They formed in Dallas in 1991 and broke up for good in 1999. The song “I Got a Girl” took off and eventually reached #6 on the Modern Rock Charts. They even played the 1995 HFStival.
In 1980, Whip It blew my young mind. I had never heard anything like it before. It was the precursor to all the synth-heavy new wave I listened to as a teenager. But my Wayback Wednesday is not Whip It. While good, there are a couple other Devo songs that really take me back to that time.
