In 1980, the Talking Heads were damn near the greatest band in the world

And will someone please help me find that SICK Talking Heads t-shirt the bass player is sporting with the airplanes on the front? I wish I had a time machine just to go back to one of these shows and shut down the merch booth. We're talking one of each and two of a few. Holla!

PS: There's an even hotter version on Youtube from Rome where Adrian Belew goes bananas on the guitar. The crowd is feeling it big time.

Oh man, why have I never seen this clip. I do believe that T shirt is one of their album covers or something, I'd kill for one

oh and if you're keen...David Byrnes blog
