  Talking Heads - Limited* Exclusive Green Vinyl!

Newbury Comics and our friends at Rhino Records are pleased to introduce Fear of Music by Talking Heads on Green Vinyl and limited to only 500 pieces.

Originally released in 1979, Fear of Music was NME and Melody Maker's album of the year and contains the singles "Life During Wartime", "I Zimbra" and "Cities". Fear of Music is the third studio album by American New Wave band Talking Heads, released on August 3rd 1979 on Sire Records. It was recorded at locations in New York City between April and May 1979 and was produced by the quartet and Brian Eno. The album reached number 21 on the Billboard 200 in the United States and peaked at number 33 on the UK Albums Chart. The record was certified Gold in the U.S. in 1985.

Among the most adventuresome bands in rock history, the Talking Heads drew from funk, minimalism, and African and Brazilian music in promulgating a new sound that was both visionary and visceral. They were invariably challenging and inventive, using infectious rhythms as a form of sorcery to introduce their ever-expanding audience to exotic influences from abroad that they might otherwise have never heard. In so doing, they helped pave the way - along with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno - for the "world music" phenomenon of the Eighties and beyond. They also created a body of highly original work, crowned by such albums as Fear of Music and Remain in Light, that didn't so much appropriate its sources as transmute them into something that felt startlingly new and improbably accessible.
