That's What He Said:DEVO
Artist: DEVO (as the Smart Patrol)
Album: Adventures Of The Smart Patrol soundtrack
Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!
Song Notes: This is from the Adventures of the Smart Patrol soundtrack CD, originally credited to the Smart Patrol, but it's actually DEVO playing on it and Jerry Casale singing lead. I didn't like the most recent DEVO albums, although after smoothnoodlemaps, I've actually liked most of the occasional one-off songs they contribute to soundtracks and other compilations. Some of the tracks are a return to their really early days; "That's What He Said" isn't, but it's a different sound than the awful Total DEVO or mediocre smoothnoodlemaps, and it's one of those DEVO songs that's unfortunately somewhat lost. A lot of people don't know about it, but after all, it was released on a soundtrack for a CD-Rom game that was awful and barely even worked on a CD-Rom company that went defunct shortly after releasing it. Not to mention that the label that put the soundtrack out also went under a year or two later. And they did it under a different name, and it doesn't really sound like a lot of DEVO songs. So, it's totally understandable why it's forgotten, it's just too bad that it is. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
