Talking Heads
Fear of Music

Nowadays 1979’s ‘Fear Of Music’ is largely remembered as the Talking Heads album with ‘Life During Wartime’ and ‘Heaven’ on it -  probably something to do with the fact that they are the only two songs from the record that made it into 1984’s ‘Stop Making Sense’ (though ‘Cities’ was included in the extended version of the film). This legacy does ‘Fear Of Music’ a great disservice - sure, those are both absolutely top tracks, but the whole album really is a triumph of the airless agit-funk style that the group had lasered in on throughout 1977’s ‘77’ and 1978’s ‘More Songs About Buildings And Food’. It also bridged the gap between those LPs and the transcendent polyrhythms of 1980's ‘Remain In Light’. This is Talking Heads at their most frantic, paranoid and couched, an effect heightened by Brian Eno’s daring production. The frenzied ecstasies of ‘I Zimbra’, ‘Animals’, ‘Memories Can't Wait’ etc. are pretty much unparalleled in the post-punk era.

Talking Heads
77

Not the title of a late period Adele record but the debut album from fidgety New Yorkers Talking Heads. It introduced the world to their distinctive strum 'n' yelp sound coming across as something like the Modern Lovers on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Contains their early hit Psycho Killer famously parodied in the Fools 'hilarious' Psycho Chicken.

More Songs About Buildings And Food

More Songs About Buildings And Food was the second Talking Heads album, originally released in 1978 and the first to feature Brian Eno in the production chair. Eno was a perfect fit for Talking Heads, teasing out of them a more dance and funk inspired sound with the rhythm section of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth taking a keener role behind David Byrne's trademark yelp.

Talking Heads
Remain in Light

Relentlessly innovative classic from new-wave legends Talking Heads. ‘Remain In Light’ is the peak of their Brian Eno produced era, with spliced up lyrics pared against extensive experimentation with loops and polyrhythms. These experiments have stood up remarkably well over the passage of time, the songs here remaining as jerky and unpredictable as ever.

Speaking in Tongues

None more jittery New Yorkers Talking Heads had already released four well regarded studio albums before they embarked on Speaking in Tongues. Though 1980's innovative Remain in Light had spawned the mega hit Once in a Lifetime, Speaking in Tongues was their true commercial breakthrough blending their arty beginnings with an increasingly danceable sound and giving them a top ten hit with Burning Down the House.
