Talking Heads formed in New York in 1975, and comprised part of the CBGB club scene, which included, among other post-punk bands, Television, Ramones, and Blondie.
Their unique sound often blended edgy rock with funk, blues, and African rhythms, and were accompanied by eccentric and introverted lyrics. They released eight studio albums, before finally splitting up in 1992. Talking Heads remain a highly distinctive and influential band, their songs are still unique and listenable, and their performances still a delight to watch.
Here is a performance of one of their most famous songs, ‘Psycho Killer’, recorded as part of their 1983 live concert movie Stop Making Sense, with a typically quirky performance by lead singer David Byrne.
