Redirect if needed.

Anyone else into the art punks from the Rhode Island School of Design?  A friend of mine showed me Stop Making Sense, which I hadn't seen since I was a kid.  Now I've amased myself a Heads collection.  I've got Remain in Light, Speaking in Tongues, and Stop Making Sense (on VHS!).

More Songs About Builds and Food is what you need.  And that live album that got reissued this year is really good too.

I used to really like talking heads when I was in junior high but the other day I listened to fear of music and just couldn't get into it. It sounded silly, which is weird cause I've heard that the older you get the more you appreciate the talking heads. They are good though.

i had Remain in Light for a while and loved it. then i rented Stop Making Sense and had to have the song, This Must Be the Place. looking for it i came across the just released Best of. bought it, loved it, wanted more TH. then got The Name of This Band (mentioned earlier) and it's great too. i'm not buying any albums because i have heard that there are remasters in the works. i believe i read they have already mixed a 5.1 version of Remain in Light.

My buddy introduced me to them after he took a trip to Greece and met a girl who was a big fan.  She sent him an mp3 disk of everything she had Talking Heads, including My Life In the Bush of Ghosts, and some Tom Tom Club.  He got me a copy.  

But now I'm actually buying their catalog on vinyl so I can be all geeky with liner notes and six degrees stuff.  But I haven't heard TNOTBITH yet, but I hear it's better than SMS.

No way! Hadn't heard that news, I hope it's true. I love that album.

"And 2005 promises a lot of interesting things too - it's been 25 years since "Remain in Light" first came out, and a remastered version (in surround sound) is scheduled for release to celebrate this anniversary. Other remastered editions of Talking Heads album are planned as well. David Byrne will do a lecture tour in the States and Chris and Tina might surprise us this year with something new.

i was in Hasting's today and just happend to notice the first 4 albums have been released individually as DualDiscs.
wondering if anyone bought these and where the cheapest place was.

*update*

Best Buy has Remain in Light on sale for 9.99. for some reason neither of the local stores had the other 3. Hasting's had all four at 15.99 a piece i believe.
