Getting original with anything is difficult these days, but inspiration for new combinations of creativity is in full effect as Miya Ando celebrates her latest artist abilities. By combing skateboarding, steel, some acid and cool outfits she has created some rad stuff. The photos below give you a little idea as to what goes into creating one of these. Check out the gallery show at deCatallane Gallery (Brooklyn, New York) sponsored by Core Formula and Element Skateboards. – JESS BRAAM

DEVO CONFIRM TOUR DATES
NEW MERCH AVAILABLE NOW
“WHAT WE DO” HEADS TO RADIO IN OCTOBER
DEVO WIN FIRST-EVER MOOG INNOVATION AWARD
Burbank, CA – As DEVO continue to spread to the truth about Devolution
around the globe, the cry for “more” can no longer be denied. The people have spoken and DEVO has answered the call. More = more and more is good!
Q: So what has become of DEVO since the release of their new studio album SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY? Have they become Rockin’ Prophets? Highly enlightened Soothsayers? Marching merchants of quality goods of all varieties and services for the masses? A: All of the above and…more.
“Combining the punk funk fury of Devo’s earliest recordings with synth-pop, this ninth disc is frantic and wall-to-wall catchy. Devo have held onto their core belief: If you want to be subversive, be utterly, unrelentingly pop.” — Rolling Stone
“Stop asking ‘why?’ and you’ll likely find yourself surrendering to the band’s herky-jerky hooks and machinelike swing. Impressively spot on.” — Entertainment Weekly
“DEVO still has that ‘Something’ special. Devo’s nerdy electropop delivers plenty of humor and hooks – what better cocktail to help one cope with the decline of civilization?” — USA Today
And so to that end, DEVO now deliver…more. A handful of live experiences have been confirmed. Dates are listed below. You know what to do.
Fri Oct 29 Moogfest Asheville, NC
Sat Oct 30 Hammerstein Ballroom New York, NY
Sun Nov 7 Fun Fun Fun Fest Austin, TX
ThurNov 11 San Manuel Indian Casino San Bernardino, CA
Fri Nov 12 Club Nokia Los Angeles, CA
Sat Nov 13 Warfield Theater San Francisco, CA
Yes, it is a beautiful world we’re living in and DEVO bring you more of it. Deploy DEVO now!
As previously announced, DEVO have been awarded the first-ever Moog Innovation Award by Moog Music. The Moog Innovation Award celebrates pioneering artists whose genre-defying work exemplifies the bold, innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Moog Music would like to congratulate DEVO on being the 2010 recipient of The Moog Innovation Award, to be presented to the band during MoogFest 2010 weekend, October 29-31 in Asheville, NC. As part of this award, Moog Music will present DEVO with a very special synthesizer, details of which will be revealed in the coming weeks. Past recipients of the previously titled Moog Award include Keith Emerson, Herb Deutsch, Gershon Kingsley, Jan Hammer, and Bernie Worrell.
The first recipient of the Moog Innovation Award is DEVO and we feel that they are a perfect representation of innovative sound-sculpting and genre-defying electronic music. Like Bob Moog, DEVO enthusiastically charted their own course and thus dramatically affected pop culture because of it. Not to mention the fact that they used Moog instruments to create their inimitable sound. MoogFest and the Moog Innovation Award is the perfect way to pay homage to Bob Moog and his adopted hometown of Asheville, NC, where he raised his kids, gave birth to some of his greatest inventions, and where he re-established the company that bears his name and carries on his legacy, Moog Music.” — Emmy Parker, Moog Music
DEVO will receive this prestigious award at Moogfest on October 29th, in Ashville, NC. For further info on Moogfest visit: www.moogfest.net/
