Talking Heads Approach Art Rock from the Right Direction
Howard Wuelfing, Unicorn Times, January 1978
TALKING HEADS are certainly not the only rock group ever to be designated "intellectuals." They are, however, the first to wear that description gracefully; they neither compromise essential rock prerogatives nor misrepresent the nature and significance of intellectual activity. They are not merely people trying to make "educated" music, they are educated people trying to make music.
