(C) 2011 WMG - What We Do (Video) Directed by: Gerald V. Casale, Kii Arens and Jason Trucco
Devo is an American band formed in 1973 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The band had a #14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence. Their style over time has shifted between punk, art rock, post-punk, and New Wave. Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary. Their often discordant pop songs feature unusual synthetic instrumentation and time signatures that have proven influential on subsequent popular music, particularly New Wave, industrial and alternative rock artists. Devo was also a pioneer of the music video, creating many memorable clips for the Laser Disc format, with "Whip It" getting heavy airplay in the early days of MTV.
Something for Everybody is the ninth studio album by American New Wave band Devo. The album was released on June 15 2010, after previously being slated for release in May 2010, having been pushed back from its original release date of late 2009 due to "radical remixing." This album will mark 20 years since the release of Devo's last studio album, Smooth Noodle Maps, in 1990. The album was released by their original label, Warner Bros., and is the first Devo album to be issued via the label since Shout in 1984. The cover depicts a woman referred to as the "Sexy Candy Dome Girl" (Russian model/musician Natasha Romanova of the band Discrete Encounter) holding a miniature blue energy dome to her mouth.
