Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…
5 July 2018
Band: TALKING HEADS
Album: MORE SONGS ABOUT BUILDINGS AND FOOD – their 2nd LP
Released: 7 July 1978 – 40 years ago
ROLLING STONE wrote: “The eclecticism of ‘More Songs about Buildings and Food’,
its witty distillations of disco and reggae rhythms, its reconciliation of “art” and punk
rock, is masterful, The music represents a triumph over diversity, while the words spell
out defeat by disparities between mind and body, head and heart. This, presumably,
is why Talking Heads make music, and superb music at that. Because talk is cheap.”
Full review here.
TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Talking Heads had the genial inventivity of making
alternative music sound fashionable and totally cool. Top band in sonic history.
