Talking Heads – Live in Rome 1980

“The big difference between us and punk groups is that we like KC and the Sunshine Band. You ask Johnny Rotten if he likes KC and the Sunshine Band and he’ll blow snot in you face.” — Chris Frantz

On December 17th 1980 at the Palazzo dello Sport in Rome Talking Heads filmed a live set with the full ten piece Afro Funk Orchestra lineup including P-Funk legend Bernie Worrell on Keyboards and guitar maestro Adrian Belew . Not as polished or obviously cinematic as Jonathan Demme’s 1984 ‘Stop Making Sense’ this set is edgier, funkier, more intense. Definitely one to file under ‘Wish I’d been there’!
