The One That Gets Away

You guys played a song (ostensibly) called “The One That Gets Away” during certain dates on the Duty Now tour; was this track ever committed to tape in a studio situation? And was this one of the scrapped songs originally intended for the Duty Now LP? Thanks!

I’m a curious spud living in Arizona, and was wondering which piece of DEVO garb or headgear would be most suitable for protecting precious brain materials from the intense heat as well as people who seek only to ruin this beautiful world we live in and hurt their fellow man? I’d assume a trusty energy dome, which I have, but was curious if your answer would be different, or if an energy dome combined with something else would be even more ideal for this type of situation! Thanks!

coneheads in devolutionary theory

Do you consider the conehead remains found in Peru to be physical evidence of devolutionary theory?

Also do you support the head binding & cradle boarding of infants to achieve this aesthetically pleasing look?

We’re all DEVO… but some are more DEVO than others.


Hello! My girlfriend and I are avid DEVO fans and were wondering if there’s any possible chance of future DEVO shows, and if Mark would accept any circuit bent toys we’ve been fiddling with. We’d love to make all of you guys something. Also hope you’re having a good day.

Alans 1982 Synare Drum Kit

Not sure how much of this is true but after years of researching and just making guessed thoughts I believe I’ve been able to figure out exactly how Alan’s Synare E-Drum Kit on the Oh, No! Tour was setup.

7 Synare 3 Drum Pads, Split into two groups of 3. Placed at an angle so they would “surround” Alan

The last pad was placed lower than the others and in the middle to function as an electronic snare drum.

4 of these pads were routed into the CV IN of a Fairlight CMI placed back stage, triggering the compressed Linn Tom samples and the clap sound on That’s Good.

Two crash cymbals placed on his right side, from what I can see I think the two we’re place vertically parallel to one another.

Timpani sticks with the felts cut off we’re used on the pads.

This is all just from observation and research.

Is any of the info put down true?

Devo Dangerfield

Just jamming to the are we not men album on. With Rodney dangerfield standup on the tv at the same time. I can’t get no satisfaction came on and I laugh. Rodney said no respect. I went with it and made it a tattoo.

Future releases


Modern Life

Why wasn’t this amazing song on Oh no! or Shout??

store not working

why does the merch check out take me to an error page and not let me buy anything? is this on purpose bc art? or is it just broken?

Question about recording formats

What do you, as DEVO, see as the best recorded format to listen to your music on (CD, cassette, vinyl, Mp3, etc.) to achive the proper intended DEVO sound?

Why Haven’t You Homo Sapien’s Made Offical Devo Glasses Yet?

Hi, I’m a fifteen year old spud who lives in Queens,NY. And I was wondering why you guys don’t have an official eyebrow version of Devo glasses yet. Like the one’s off the cover of “Oh No! It’s Devo.” And if you did have them in the past you should really look into re-producing them. I would love to have a pair! I don’t think people’s skulls vary that much in size, it shouldn’t be THAT much of a hassle to size them correctly for a adult/child. And if not glasses, make eyebrow pads so people can stick them on their own set of glasses! Or whatever else they can think of! I crafted myself a pair for Halloween because I’m planning on dressing up as Mark, but they don’t look so hot. So I just thought I’d mention it to you all. Plus, (I’m not sure what the actual name is for them) but the white, “dome” neck pieces you guys use to flaunt would be a cool addition to the merch store as well. Thanks for taking time out to read through this! I love you all! – W


I’m wondering if you guys would ever go on tour again? I never got to see any older tours haha. I was too young to see you guys but judging from what I see on youtube your concerts seem lit.

Next New Zealand show?

When are you coming to Auckland, New Zealand again?
Your last show was epic, however I think it would be better in a bigger location than a winery. There are so many DEVO fans in NZ that would love to see you have your own show. Please don’t wait too long to visit our shores again.
