Devo – Disco Dancer (US 12″)

Spent an hour and a half doing the latest in “Tunes From Oz and Beyond” series then I lost it…..Bloody WordPress. I’ll re-write and do it tomorrow 😦

So a quick post from a more modern sounding Devo, released in 1988 and features mixes by Ivan Ivan. It was new to me so hopefully it’s new to you being off the album “Totally Devo” recorded after Alan Myers left the band. Very commercial sounding it even has a “Bonus Beats” track, eyes firmly focussed on the dancefloor then.

Same tracks on both sides but obviously not doubled up on the MP3 rip!

Funky guitars and more than a nod to Divine. Apparently it was inspired by the Bollywood(Indian) movie Disco Dancer with Mitun Chakravorty.

  1. Oh wow, same here: “I didn’t know about this one.” Thanks for posting it.
    Is there any chance that an obscure vinyl-only version of ‘Some Things Never Change’ exists? Discogs does not list any.
