I think it was around 1994 when I was approached to contribute something for a compilation CD of Devo covers. At that time, “Mecha-Mania Boy” was only available (as far as I know) as the B-side of “Jerkin Back And Forth”, and it would still be a couple of years before it would be released on a CD. Only hardcore DEVO-TEES (and their close spud friends) had ever heard it – which is a shame, because it was one of their best.
These songs were written by Steven Cowan, Glenn Gibson and Charles Watson. They were recorded between 1988-1990.
The old cassette copies sat in storage for over 20 years. Despite a little deterioration and print-through, the sound quality is surprisingly decent. Now, in 2014, I am attempting to make digital copies of all my old works. After digitizing, I applied a little corrective EQ and dynamic processing.
