Apocalyptic Swamp Funk. That’s how the New Yorker described this song.
“Life During Wartime” is a single from the album Fear of Music, one of three Talking Heads albums produced by Brian Eno.
“Life During Wartime” is also performed in the 1984 music documentary about Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense, directed by Jonathan Demme that was shot over three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles.
It’s always fascinating for me to watch David Byrne and co. perform (through YouTube; I’ve never seen them on stage in person). In November, Mr. Byrne will be in Adelaide. I’m quite sure I’ll be there!
