I've always loved this band....They still could be recording/touring together, but David Byrne's ego has gotten the best of him and he believes he's WAY TOO superior to bow down to the others....But he obviously forgets how excellent the other three are! They still have it as evidence from their Rock-N-Roll HOF induction performance (even though several years have since elapsed)..... But man.....I wish David can come back to his senses before it's too late!

OOOH YES. Fear of Music is in my top albums ever.

It's a real shame Byrne's as much of a prick as he is, because a reunion would be mind-bendingly good. I could only hope that the music would be better than their last two albums though.

One of my favourite bands. Although I think I'd have to play it a little more safe and say my favourite album is Remain in Light, probably followed by More Songs etc.

Have to disagree with you guys about David Byrne though. I think it's great what he's doing at the moment; he really is a musical polymath. I thought the album he did with St Vincent was great, for example. His recent book is worth a read, by the way.

I liked the St. Vincent album. I also can't wait for the new De La Soul album on which he appears :D

Oh, I love what Byrne has done solo....but he still has time to devote towards the Talking Heads (at least to record some songs here and there and conduct a brief tour), but he seems to have such an odd stance on the other three forgetting how vital their contributions were as well.


You cannot go wrong w/both "Fear of Music" and "Remain In Light"....

I love love Tina & Chris in the Tom Tom Club and obviously Tina's contributions w/the Gorillaz......

Have you seen their performances when they were inducted into the Hall of Fame? Don't exactly look like they're best of mates.

Absolutely love them, one of my all-time favourite bands. I don't think they'll ever reform, though. What are your thoughts on A Clean Break? I've always been gutted about it not being recorded in a studio. It may be in my TH top 5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3SoQh_VTZs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Well... Byrne doesn't look too all amused, but the other three seem to be enjoying themselves, but you can sense the tension:

Their debut album is absolutely perfect.

Agreed....This wasn't on the original track-listing, but found itself within the 2005 re-issue... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LTCdt4tk8k" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Such an ace of a song!

Well if he doesn't want to do it, he doesn't want to do it. I wouldn't want to return to my first job either.
Not unless I couldn't get any other job, and desperately needed the money.

I suppose....I guess it's the obsessive Talking Heads fan in me....I've loved them for over 30-years and was rather young during their initial height of their career and now more than ever would just love to see them live...So perhaps it's for selfish reasons, but sometimes he should consider that he probably wouldn't have established himself if it wasn't for the band and it seems he feels far too superior than the others and I resent that type of attitude. Sometimes it's best to honor your roots than just completely shun it and minimize it's importance. Although, I'm not saying he owes anyone, but lord it would be so perfect if he did consider.....
