You've probably heard that one of the most subversive and influential bands of all time, DEVO, is coming out with their first studio album in over 20 years. We're so excited about Something For Everybody that we've regularly been trumpeting the news on our site. Look for a BIG story on DEVO in the August 2010 issue.
In preparation for that, frontman and synthesist Mark Mothersbaugh showed us around Mutato Muzika, the Los Angeles mothership that serves not only as DEVO's creative epicenter, but is where Mothersbaugh has plied his enviable film and TV scoring trade, from Pee-Wee's Playhouse to Rugrats to almost every film Wes Anderson has ever made. Mutato is literally a radioactive green carousel of a building, and is home to an enviable collection of vintage and circuit-bent gear, not the least of which is a fully functional Hammond Novachord you'll see editor Stephen Fortner playing in these videos.
