Devo’s Energy Domes

First worn during their 1980 Freedom of Choice tour, Devo’s trademark terraced hats were inspired by Aztec temples and the German Bauhaus movement. They also have more than just aesthetic reasons for the iconic shape, at least if you take Mark Mothersbaugh at his word: “You probably know this very well, but your orgone energy goes out the top of your head and it dissipates out the top, but if you wear an energy dome it recycles that energy”. Yeah, it’s common knowledge, but just FYI.
