Talk Talk Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

The band that once were basically Duran Duran with a different repeated word in their name, Mark Hollis took the commercial success of his pop brainchild and demolished it, choosing instead to grow magical, waterfalling post-rock. 'The Colour of Spring' is the best way to understand this band, in some ways; it shows the romping bravado of their early, big hit days coalescing with their stranger, more exploratory song structures and arrangements. They'd go on to influence pretty much everyone who wanted a new way of making rock music on 'Spirit of Eden' and the legendary 'Laughing Stock'.

Talk Talk
The Party’s Over

It still beggars belief that this record was made by the same people who made 'Laughing Stock'.  This is Talk Talk in full throes of their early 'new romantic' sound. Having supported Duran Duran there is a certain similarity in sound but even when in synth pop excess mode Talk Talk were clever and literate...view item »

Talk Talk
The Colour Of Spring

The Colour of Spring was the transition album between the old Talk Talk (sort of like a literate Duran Duran) and the new Talk Talk (jazz inflected post rock innovators). The Colour of Spring had elements of both containing chart-ready hits ('Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World'...view item »

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

Well I never thought I'd be talking about this on the site. One of my all time favourite albums which I now have the excuse of playing again so I can write this! Ba Da Bing have fortuitously decided to release the vinyl of 'The Laughing Stock' which has been unavailable since the year dot in ...view item »
