Talking Heads

loading image

Talking Heads was formed in 1974 by several art students at the Rhode Island School of Design and remained active until 1991. The group combined elements of punk rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world music, and art rock in a New Wave musical style. Front man and songwriter David Byrne contributed whimsical, esoteric lyrics and emphasized the bands showmanship through various multimedia projects and performances. Talking Heads teamed up with Brian Eno to produce More Songs About Buildings and Food, its second album, which is considered one of the funkiest nervous-breakdown records ever made.
