Unsupervised was the first full album released by John Flansburgh's Mono Puff. In contrast to its funky counterpart It's Fun To Steal, Unsupervised features the core line-up of Flansburgh, Mike Viola, Steve Calhoon, and Hal Cragin, with only a few guest artists sprinkled throughout the album. Many tracks are re-recordings of songs from the earlier release John Flansburgh's Mono Puff.

Keeping the album's summer release date in mind, the single for Unsupervised was "The Devil Went Down To Newport", for which a music video was produced. The track was released as a 7" single and as a CD extended play with two non-LP tracks and a different take on the song.
