The Complete Truth

This week brings with it the reissue of Devo's music video collection, Devo: The Complete Truth About De-Evolution, which offers, via bonus extras, insights on the band's classic videos. And it marks a rather sweet moment for Devo lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh. For years, he's been one of Hollywood's more succesful TV and film score composers, with fan favorites such as Rushmore, Enlightened, Catfish, and most recently, The Lego Movie, on his massive resume. But his work with music and visuals began during the band's early years, setting the template for his second career. Mothersbaugh recently shared some of his fondest memories of those early videos with Rolling Stone. - John Gentile
