This Must Be The Place: Talking Heads Special
The opening of new Sean Penn film 'This Must Be The Place' was the catalyst for our long overdue Talking Heads special, seeing as the film not only features music by David Byrne, but the film's title is also borrowed from a Talking Heads tune - which features in this mix of mostly early LPs... (i.e. up to around 1983, while the band were still great and their brand of jerky, neurotic, nervy post-punk-indie-disco-funk was yet to find a FM-pop audience, become diluted and seemingly turn into a Byrne dictatorship). You'll not only hear classic Heads here, but some overlooked LP tracks, some super-funky jamm-downs led by super-bassist Tina Weymouth, but also some rare 12" mixes & even a recent edit. Second half of the show features tracks from labels like Check The Guns, Salsoul & SuperValue, plus brand new Mumbai-via-Melbourne Bolly-funk & Afro-funk care of Guynamukat/Mukatsuku. Hope you enjoy.
