New Release Special Offer

  Talking Heads - Limited* Exclusive Maroon Vinyl!

 



Order the double LP reissue of Talking Head's live album The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads on Maroon Vinyl. This exclusive pressing from Newbury Comics and Rhino Records is limited* to only 1000 pieces.


About Talking Heads:

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.

The double live LP The Name Of This Band was released in 1982, after the release of solo albums by David Byrne, Jerry Harrison, and The Tom Tom Club.

The first disc chronicled the original quartet and its quirky new wave songs, including the previously unreleased "A Clean Break" and the previously single-only "Building on Fire." The album title was drawn from David Byrne's unadorned stage introductions ("The name of this band is Talking Heads. The name of this song is ...").

On the second disc, the expanded '80s version of Talking Heads explored African rhythms and complex musical patterns, with each of the instruments doubled -- Adrian Belew was on guitar, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, Busta Jones on bass, and Steve Scales on percussion, while Dolette McDonald and Nona Hendryx helped out on vocals.

*This special offer is valid for domestic and international orders. This exclusive vinyl pre-order is limited to (5) per customer and will be available while supplies last. Newburycomics.com will post information when this item is sold out.
