Talking Heads – “The Great Curve”
You, like I and many others, have favorite bands. Talking Heads are one of mine. Never, until this band, had I come across music that challenged me as a listener. They’ve left little nuggets of influence in plenty of bands but I firmly believe that no one has done or will ever do what they did better than them.

Long live Talking Heads.
