Previously Unreleased ’76 Talking Heads Song Surfaces

Talking Heads

Track appears on a tape of a live show from CBGB.

 A website in the Netherlands devoted to the Talking Heads has posted “a recently surfaced live recording of [the original 3-piece] Talking Heads playing live in New York on July 30, 1976 [that] features a yet unknown track.” (Via Slicing Up Eyeballs.) Apparently the instrumental was played a couple of times during the early show and was introduced by David Byrne thusly: “This is an instrumental.” An audience member then shouts, “No title?” Byrne shoots back, “We call it ‘Theme,’ but then we just keep it to ourselves.”
