30th Anniversary Edition of Devo's 1988 album Total Devo. Available here on Deluxe Double LP Box Set and Deluxe Double CD Box Set.
Back in 1988, when the airwaves were being homogenized by vapid pop, DEVO set about creating their first album in four years. The result was this slice of overt irony, a dance orientated, back to basics, emotionally arch selection – including now classics ‘Baby Doll’ and ‘Disco Dancer’ – that twisted pop on it’s head by imitating in part the very music it mocked. Despite it’s industrial edge and unusual trademark quirk, the joke was so honest at the time that it was inevitably lost, but in the years since heinsight has this serving as a true testament to another of DEVO‘s misunderstood works of art.
DEVO’s Total Devo Deluxe is an essential addition to the collection of any agitated spud, on it’s 30th Anniversary it’s time to witness total de-evolution in action! You knew the time would come, and now it’s here, so get totalled – only while stocks last.
