Greetings, Programs! If you have traveled this part of the Grid before, then you know how I thoroughly enjoyed Daft Punk's original soundtrack for Tron Legacy. Today saw the release of what looked to be a fun bit of additional content for Tron fans with Tron Legacy: R3C0NF1GUR3D, a set of remixes of Daft Punk's now legendary soundtrack. How did these considerably dancier spins on the Daft Punk sound turn out? Grab a glass of glowing energy and come take a listen.
Despite having been a fan of DEVO for over three decades, visiting Mutato Muzika to interview Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, and later, interviewing Mark again with Dr. Robert Moog at a convention for enthusiasts of the synths that bear his name, I had never seen DEVO play live. Preposterous but plausible. That changed on March 19th, when I finally caught the Spudboys live at Club Nokia. And as the saying goes, you never forget your first.
