One of the most progressive tunes I've heard from David Byrne. Reminds me of a cross between Peter Gabriel and King Crimson.

Hey cool, I like this. Haven't followed David Byrne after his last album with Eno, which I found rather underwhelming.

The song is from the T Heads album "Fear of Music". Fripp played on the original version.

I think that tune actually inspired King Crimson & Gabrielís 80s direction. Fear of Music came out in 1979.

Yes it is but I had no idea Robert played on the original. I was a kinda sorta TH fan but only from the periphery and not really until Speaking in Tongues. Hearing this live version some 40 years on mades me want to go back and explore their catalogue in closer detail. Maybe it's time to get into an 80' revival groove.

I don't know what it is, but I just don't like David Byrne/Talking Heads very much. It just radiates smugness or something like that - and I'm not feeling it. I enjoy tons of stuff that he is obviously inspired by and even bands and artists that he has inspired.

Always appreciated Byrne for including Fripp and Eno on Fear of Music's I Zimbra, a precursor to Discipline. And there were a couple of really good singles he came up with while still with the 'Heads (can't recall their names) that I don't think ever made it onto CD. A true deep thinker, and thanks for bringing him up.
