Beacon Journal | 08/19/2005 | Devo still knows how to whip it good: "Mark Mothersbaugh "
Devo was an Akron based band. Growing up I was more into Michael Stanley than Devo, but since they were from Akron they always had a small place in my tape (yep, tape) rotation. Besides how can you not like Whip It.
Anyone with younger kids have probably seen Mark Mothersbaugh's name since he is responsible (for better or worse) for the music on Rug Rats, and I think the further incarnation of that series. Plus he did the music for Mystery Men, and even had a small part in it. Actually a few years ago they did a "where are they now" type story and the Mothersbaugh brothers and one or two of the original Devo lineup are doing music for TV & movies now. Mostly writing, but they get out the old flower pot hats from time to time and do a short tour.
