Talking Heads: Dr Pepper Music Festival, Wollman Skating Rink, Central Park NY
Fred Schruers, Musician, November 1980
THE TALKING Heads' avowed inspiration, when they began as a trio in 1976, was boredom with the contemporary art scene. The homemade music they began turning out, which they called "pop" and "accessible," sounded pretty whacky to most people — mostly because of David Byrne's oddly phrased vocals and the sing-songy rhythms that dominated the first album.
