the new Byrne-Eno thing is great. downloaded it last night. twangy, country, gospel vibe. not as wack as the last thing they did togehter in the early 80s.

Check out any of the Talking Heads Live in Rome videos from 1980 on youtube. They're ripping.

2 that's the Heads at the height of their powers. great stuff there.
I didnt get to see them until a few years later on the Stop Making Sense tour. caught them at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium. without question the best concert I've ever been to.

The Eadweard Muybridge David Byrne sums it up pretty neatly.

Great video. Man, I miss those things, and that band.

2 Good stuff, thanks for the heads up.

2 nice point out ... GREAT version of Crosseyed and Painless from that show ... with the way this season is going, good thing that's not only my favorite Heads song, it's also the best way to watch the 2008 yankees play a game ...

The film doc of "Stop Making Sense" was a Demme masterpiece.

And thanks for that youtube heads-up .... it made me all happy inside ...

(never got to see them live ... sigh)
