leftymcrighty: That entire video was on quaaludes
Tyrone Slothrop: Interesting that Jerry Harrison wasn't part of the group yet. I didn't know he came in later.
calbert: link is now dead
cryinoutloud: I'm not sure if the Talking Heads is the greatest band ever in my mind
calbert: it's not 'rare footage'it has been greened here before:Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" live at CBGBs Aug 16 2007 (link is now dead)and as one of the commenters in that original thread said, "I'm a huge talking heads fan but damn, they sure came a long way from that performance"./and I'm not thread-jacking or off topic or submitting this as a repeat//it would just be refreshing if the submitted headlines weren't so ignorant of the subject matter (meaning, don't call something rare that was already greened here 6 years ago in the hopes of coaxing a greenlight)
cryinoutloud: I'm not sure if the Talking Heads is the greatest band ever in my mind, but pretty damn close. Also, I'd fark David Byrne, repeatedly, from the day that was recorded, until last night. And then I'd get up, take a shower, and we could do it some more today.
REO-Weedwagon: I mention it only because my friends are sick if hearing my yammer on about it for the last five years. David Byrne recorded a great album with Brian Eno in 2008. It's criminally underrated. If you're a fan and haven't heard it, definitely check it out. It's called Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.
LeroyBourne: Yep, David Byrne has also done some good work with Thievery Corporation. If you haven't, check them out, very cool.
Aquapope: Chicks who just learned how to playing bass are hot.
REO-Weedwagon: LeroyBourne: Yep, David Byrne has also done some good work with Thievery Corporation. If you haven't, check them out, very cool.I did not know that, which is odd since I consider myself one of Fark's premiere music assholes. I'm seeing TC at Red Rocks in two weeks. Never seen 'em, should be hot.
ten foiled hats: LeroyBourne: Yep, David Byrne has also done some good work with Thievery Corporation. If you haven't, check them out, very cool.WHY WAS I NOT TOLD OF THIS? (Sorry to shout, I know farkers aren't blind...generally.)Here be one called "Dance On Vaseline" (what is it with Byrne and Vaseline? Or do I want to know?). It is not bad. Not great, mind, but not bad. Good for a Sunday afternoon.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ljr41LTpCUgI thank you for bringing this to my attention.
PiffMan420: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s619F2LnkvkThe now legendary 1983 Stop Making Sense performance, directed by a pre-Silence of the Lambs Jonathan Demme. In it's glorious entirety.If you don't get chills during "Psycho Killer", "Life During Wartime", "Once in a Lifetime" or "Heaven"....check your pulse.
LeroyBourne: No worries, there non DB stuff is good too imo. This is their first album. I bought it blind, no research when I was 17. I called it their italian porn album, you'll know why. For your lazy Sunday afternoon. Enjoy.Link
puckrock2000: Aquapope: Chicks who just learned how to playing bass are hot.FTFY/she fingers the E string with her left thumb - only somebody who has no idea what they're doing would would play bass like that
miss jinxed: i get so sad every time i walk by where CBGB used to be and see the John Varvatos store.on another note i sat in front of David Byrne at a movie and he would bust out the most annoying laugh at the least funny moments of the movie.still love me some talking heads, particularly Orange Crush.
Lee451: Where is the love for "Psycho Chicken"?
MarkMartinFan: there was a thread a few months back that had a video of David doing "psycho killer" as a sort of an acoustic solo and doing all the great antics on stage. I wanted to bookmark it but either didn't or it is lost in the mess of computer consolidation. Anyone remember the url?tia
