„The 1979 Talking Heads tour, promoting the release of their Fear Of Music album, would be the last to feature the stripped down quartet lineup and the first to gain them significantly more exposure in America. These excerpts are from their appearance at Boston’s prestigious Berklee School of Music, which was one of the wildest and most memorable performances on this breakthrough tour. With the original B52’s opening this show, there was plenty of momentum before The Heads even hit the stage. This, combined with playing before an intelligent and relatively home turf audience, ignited an inspired performance. The band’s sound was clearly evolving, containing more complex rhythmic structures and song arrangements. The overt awkwardness that frontman David Byrne’s unusual vocal affectations were engaging and the music was clearly beginning to resonate more deeply, particularly in a live context (Performance will be released in May).“
