For Throwback Thursday, I’ve got a treat for you. I never really understood the Talking Heads when I was younger. They hit the mainstream before I was old enough to know what music was, essentially. So I never got into it, however, this remix hit me at just the right moment, and now I kinda get it. This is a tremendous re-working and “How did I get here?” makes a whole lot more sense now that I’ve got some miles under these tires. Where is that large automobile indeed. I think there’s a lot of wisdom in some of the older music that will hopefully start getting remixed now that it’s officially “vintage.” Weird thinking of the 80’s being vintage, but when you’re 30 years out (yup!), the meanings will evolve, and we’ll all be better for it. The dance house vibe on this is strong, so put it into your face as the days go by. Gilgamesh does some great work here, so give em some love.
I mean really, what else is there to say? Le Poisson Rouge was served a delightful surprise last week, when the Talking Heads alum performed in support of “Artists’ Pay For Radio Play” last Tuesday night. Not only did he sit in with the band, they busted out the Biz Markie. Which, is always welcome on the mean streets of Gotham. (via Metafilter)
