Apocalyptic Swamp Funk. That’s how the New Yorker described this song.
This single, “Life During Wartime”, is from the album Fear of Music—one out of 3 of Talking Heads’ albums produced by Brian Eno.
The video is taken from Stop Making Sense, a music documentary of Talking Heads directed by Jonathan Demme which was shot over the course of three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre, Los Angeles.
To me, it’s always exciting to see David Byrne & co. performance (via YouTube, have never seen them on stage in real life). And Mr. Byrne will be in Adelaide in November. I’m quite sure I’ll be going!
