This was a feature I undertook for Clash Magazine two years ago. I didn’t have much on over Christmastime, so I swatted up, reading both Simon Reynolds’ seminal Rip it Up and Start Again and This Must Be the Place: The Adventures of Talking Heads in the Twentieth Century. Both excellent reads for your inner music geek.
The album in question was Speaking In Tongues, not even my favourite Talking Heads record, but it was fun to have the time and scope to look at a record in depth and in its original context.
So when I stumbled across the article on the Clash website recently, it got me thinking that I’d like to do more of this type of writing. Now if I could only find another hour in the day…
If you like Talking Heads you might find it interesting, so here’s the link.
