Sand in the Vaseline pretty much sums it up for me. Just when things were about to get all nice and lubricated - FriCtiOn!

This is the song that made me aware of The Talking Heads.  What a great cover.

And don't forget the Bryan Ferry version from his album "The Bride Stripped Bare".  Personally I'd rate that version second behind (well behind) the Al Green original.

You missed the part where they photographed that assemblage and printed it at the relevant size (i.e. to fit on a standard record sleeve), I think. Otherwise, a plausible story.

My all-time favorite band, dIRE sTRAITS, made his first tour by opening for Talking Heads in the late 70's.
I still can't understand the link between the two band's musics {#Ask}

 
They were both different and creative from what was being fed on the mainstream radio- foreigner, styx reo Chicago, doobies.aka that dull boring stuff

I saw them for the Big Suit tour. That was one of my top 5 shows ever.

This album doesn't get old either.

Great song, but I'm not convinced it's about either buildings or food.

Loved it massively from the first time I heard it.  Unless you were there - in NYC in the late 70's - hanging out at Max's Kansas City, Hurrah's and the Mudd Club, you have no idea of how strange and different all the "new" music and new bands we were hearing were from what was being played on the radio at the time. 
 
I know what you mean - I went to Max's a few times, and CBGB pretty frequently in the late '70s and early '80s - Peppermint Lounge and The Ritz too.
