Devo – Post Post Modern Man (US 12″)

The 90’s need not be just be about Brit Pop and early Dance, lots of the 80’s iconic bands were busy reinventing themselves for the new decade. Not all successfully. Devo released the album, “Smooth Noodle Maps” in 1990,  before disappearing for a decade. This seemed to be a return to form, here spread 7 mixes. Justin Strauss and Hugo Dyer help out in the studio on this mix of rocky guitar and arpeggioing synths, almost a nod back to the early 80’s. Kraftwerk’s considering influence appears on the “Macro Mix”, “Sub”, “Neo” and “Ultra” are more dance orientated other dance tracks sampled over the top, “Better To Compute” , “Test One”- the “Ultra” is quite fierce and old skool, leaving out the vocals.
