There are lots of fake posters each year, this is one of them. It would blow my mind to see Talking Heads and Pulp the same day.

There are rumors about Tom Tom Club, though. (They are listed on Saturday in this poster!)

That would be... er... interesting.

I'd love to see DB and Jarvis together on stage.

I've seen the rumours about TTC too. Anyone know if they're confirmed? Frank?

It also has Jeff Magnum and Godspeed you Black Emperor! on that same day. I would probably never go to a concert again after that.

Yes, that's the real one.

No Tom Tom Club even though they were heavily rumored. I guess I won't be going then.

This is actually the playbill from that weird, alternate mirror universe.

You know--the one where Talking Heads never broke up, John McCain won the 2008 election and Mr. Spock sports a pointed goatee...

It's funny you should mention Obama winning the 2008 election - I enjoy having the one party in control at all times. :roll:

But Tina, Chris, and Jerry all say the band never officially broke up. :lol:

New Rule: if your band hasn't played together in over eight years...you've broken up.

Although there's always hope. Now even the Cars have gotten back together. And strangely, their music sounds alarmingly like retro-80s hey-day material. I don't know if that's a good thing...

There are no music rules - I know the band is dissolved; I think we all know that.

But is that relevant music? America got back together, but they're just doing what they think will sell. It's not relevant, but it sells a lot to old codgers.

That's why I love David Byrne; he won't get the band back together, won't play the big stadiums like he once did, and still makes relevant, new music.

Poor you! Those broadsheets can be daunting for the young. Try starting with the Funnies section.You may just pick up something you could use.Not as though you have so far...

Well...it's not David's band to begin with. It's Chris' band. Always was. David won't play big stadiums because...well...no one would sponsor him playing a big stadium. And I don't think masses of people would shell out a hundred smackers to come out and hear him do those opera pieces.

I'm not sure he's making relevant music, either. Sorry--but "Grown Backwards" was just...goofy. The 2008 collaboration with Eno was lofted up on Eno's skill and the Fatboy Slim collaboration was just so totally bizarre I don't even know where to go with it. What could be more irrelevant than Imelda Marcos?

I've always said that, with a few exceptions, Byrne's best work came from collaborations with others. And I'm of the strong opinion that those collaborators did most of the shaping and molding. Thats not a criticism...just an observation.



That's a bit more harsh than maybe I want it to seem.
