The Name Of This Fantastic Band is TALKING HEADS And They Released A Fantastic Double Live Album 40 Years Ago Today

Back in time

24 March 2022

Between 1978 and 1982 New York’s new wave icons TALKING HEADS released their four best albums of their triumphant career with Talking Heads: 77 (1977), More Songs About Buildings and Food (1978), Fear of Music (1979) and Remain in Light (1980).

They followed this 4 in a row top scores with a double live LP in 1982, titled THE NAME OF THIS BAND IS TALKING HEADS (David Byrne used to open concerts with this introduction line, and he also announced songs as ‘The name of this song is….’)

It captures their early live edge of 1977/1979 and their expanded ten-piece lineup
sound of 1980/1981 brilliantly. From minimum to maximum. From punky sublime
to funky sublime. Yes, a once-in-a-lifetime band!

All psycho killers right here…
