Devo Indeed-o

I have a soft spot for Devo more than most, probably, and I don't mean hazy days nostaglia for a time when MTV played videos and "Whip-It" got to share face time with Martha Quinn. No, I mean "Beautiful World" with its beautiful riff and clear-eyed irony, "Uncontrollable Urge" which plays like it titles, even the poppy synth pop of "Big Mess."

But when I read an interview with Mark Mothersbaugh and get to this passage--"Meanwhile, Mothersbaugh is working on an independent project he informally calls Butt Pong - a low-brow Pong knockoff with scatological graphics and sound"--I have to figure someone's just got too much time on his hands.

And then I really want to play the game.
