Re: Talking Heads
David Byrne is an egotistical douche, but the music he made with Talking Heads is pretty remarkable, at least what I've heard of them. I admit that I'm still learning about them. The late 70s American version of New Wave and art rock that they were a part of isn't something I've ever actively sought out. My main experience with them is because of Brian Eno, who is a goddamn genius, and was their producer for most of their career (fun fact: Steve Lillywhite did their last album before they split). His influence has a lot to say about most of the music they made, or at least, it does on the ones that I really dig--Remain in Light and My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, which was a Byrne/Eno collaboration, rather than a Talking Heads record. Still a lot of exploring to do, but it's happening, slowly but surely. Still, David? Why you gotta treat Tina and Chris like something you dug out of your ear (oh, and that other guy whose name I don't remember)? Dude didn't even turn up for their Rock 'n Roll HOF induction. It was lame when Axl didn't do it, and it was lame 10 years earlier.
It was his sled. It was his sled from when he was a kid. There, I just saved you two long, boob-less hours.
