Byrned Out

Scared to listen to early Talking Heads, 'cos I know I'll end up liking them.

Don't - they are horrible.

I don't know if I can help myself. I'm very susceptible to peer pressure.

I know I'll hate myself because the Talking Heads I was first exposed to was mid-80s 'Road To Nowhere' vintage. I fucking hated their wacky videos with a passion, and Byrne has to be in the top ten of most irritating wankers in popular music.

I can't believe that some people claim that he was from Scotland.

Wasn't he born in Dumbarton or something like that? Not that it matters a fuck, right enough.

Anyway, early Talking Heads were fantastic - Life During Wartime, Heaven and Psycho Killer from Fear of Music alone are class! Must get round to buying 77 and More Songs About Buildings and Food (wait, have I got that title correct?) sometime soon.

Got the title of the album right, but Psycho Killer was on 77 - thicko me!
