The Talking Heads concert film STOP MAKING SENSE, recorded at a 1983 Hollywood performance, brought audiences everywhere face to face with the very visual aesthetic of conceptual artiste David Byrne and his cohorts. Playing the part of performance artist, Byrne used elaborate visual gimmicks to enhance the themes of his songs for maximum visceral impact. Serendipitously, STOP MAKING SENSE captured the band at an artistic peak, as it consists mostly of material from the glorious funk-inspired albums REMAIN IN LIGHT and SPEAKING IN TONGUES. Live, complemented by a phalanx of great auxiliary musicians, the Heads emphasise the funkier aspects of their jumpy art-dance concepts, and tunes like "Burning Down the House" and "Girlfriend is Better", already impressive in their studio versions, seem to jump off the album.

Couldn't resist: -
Enjoy and enjoy some more
Somewhat underrated by some but my god not underrated in the Wedge house
Pure genius and ahead of their time - sounds awesome almost 30 years later and still genius

..and now available on Bluray as of July this year. (Not at a hot deal price though :-( )

Fantastic concert film. Up there with the best...if not the best.

Far too far ahead of his time Byrne is still underated as a forefather on 'new' music, banded! together the 'Heads' are one of the best groups ever to band together, with some of the most memorable sounds out there in their day, and even now. This album is a classic and it this price its a bargain, dont miss out real music lovers. Thanks Andy.

One of the best concerts love byrne's suit Hot !!!

Another great Album. I have the video (yes I still have a video!!)of this whitch is also excellent

This reminds me of the landlady and the pool table late one night at my local many moons ago when I was happy. ( Ooops, better change my avy back to grumpy old git. )


without doubt the best concert footage ever recorded,and by Jonothan Deme (silence of the lambs) if I'm not mistaken!

I was lucky enough to see them at Wembley Arena in 1982. Nothing comes near.

Great album, why a big suit.........

One of the best live albums by any band

Nice find ordered
