Featuring herky-jerky rhythms and fractured melodies, bizarre choreography and costumes, an often confrontational performance style, and a philosophy that mankind, after climbing to the top of the food chain, was slowly but surely scurrying back down, Devo weren't much like anyone else in pop music, even during the New Wave explosion of the late 1970's. Devo were also a band who saw plenty of potential in the medium of the music video, using visuals to at once enhance and contrast the messages of their songs, and even before the rise of MTV, Devo were creating bizarre but sophisticated promotional clips to illustrate their tunes. Devo: The Complete Truth About De-Evolution is a comprehensive collection of the band's music videos, with rare performance footage and thoughts from the band added for good measure. Selections include "Whip It", "Satisfaction", "Girl U Want", "Beautiful World", "Freedom Of Choice", "Mongoloid", "Come Back Jonee", and more. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary
  • Three never-before-seen clips from early DEVO gigs
  • Photo Gallery
  • Bonus Video: "Mongoloid," directed by Bruce Connor

DEVOLICIOUS by MOsborne March 11, 2005 - 8:31 AM PST

What a tribute! Wacky, Zany, Original but talented! These 80's marvels show their best outfits in many videos and small shorts. A great review of the early stuff to their most popular songs. Highly reccomended for the DEVO lovers or for the lovers of the odd and unusual.
