Talking Heads Career Overview DVD Due

 

Lester Bangs-approved
at that.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

En route is a career-spanning Talking Heads DVD, Chronology, due November 21 via Eagle
Rock. It includes classic performances and interviews showing transition from
the early three-piece days (singer/songwriter/guitarist David Byrne, bassist Tina
Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz in 1975) to a quartet (keyboardist/guitarist Jerry
Harrison joined in 1977), on into an ensemble of multi-cultural proportions.

 

A deluxe edition of the release will also be available that
will include a 48-page hard-cover book with photographs plus an essay by the
late Lester Bangs, originally published as a review of Fear Of Music for the Village
Voice
in 1979. The essay is the complete and unexpurgated version,
available here for the first time.

 

The early clips from The Kitchen and CBGB in New York
City…the global success in the 1980s…the celebratory reunion performance of
“Life During Wartime” when they were inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame
in 2002…it’s all here. (Although they continued to record, Talking Heads
stopped touring in 1983. They officially broke up eight years later.) Bonus
Features include a Byrne interview in 1978, a 35-minute 1979 documentary-styled
British television show on the band and commentary from Byrne, Harrison, Frantz
and Weymouth.
