Devo ‎– Baby Doll (1988)

Devo is an American rock band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band included two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single “Whip It”, and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence.

In 1988, Devo released their seventh studio album. It was the first Devo album that was recorded without drummer Alan Myers, who was replaced by former Sparks drummer David Kendrick. This was the first Devo album to use the then-new Roland S-50 and Roland D-50 synthesizers. This was also the last album to use the Fairlight CMI synth computer, which was mostly used for pre-sequencing the album, as well as for sampling in the choruses of “Some Things Never Change” and “Agitated.”

The first single to be released from the album was “Baby Doll” which was remixed by Ivan Ivan.

Devo ‎– Here To Go (1985)

Devo is an American New Wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 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.

“Here To Go” was remixed by Ivan Ivan for the US 12″ Single.
