Hi Spuds,

DEVO’s first album in 20 years “Something for Everybody” dropped today. I just bought the deluxe edition :^). Checkout the live listening party for 20 cats http://www.ustream.tv/devo?loc=interstitialskip

One of my favorite things about DEVO is how they blend social commentary into their art – and of course their heave use of synths! I’ve really been enjoying their current angle which is commentary on consumerism, big corporations, and mega marketing. I think it’s awesome that they went back to Warner Bros. for this release and got them in on the satire.

Here is a brand new video and Episode 1 of of a 5 episode tongue-in-cheek we reality series they just kicked off today – DEVO Makes Something For Everybody – Episode 1. They’ll post new episodes on upcoming Tuesdays.

They’ll also be appearing on the Colbert Report on June 16th.

Lastly, DEVO is starting a big tour to spread the word about devolution.

  1. Hi JC,
    That’s all part of the joke. The focus groups themselves are satirical. Even the title of the album is social commentary on the notion of trying to make something for everybody – which of course isn’t possible. The lyrics for the songs are loaded with satire and social commentary as well.

  2. It’s funny how they have this social commentary, but at the same time everything about the album, from the artwork to the individual tracks, was chosen by focus groups. Could you get any more corporate/”mega-marketed”?
