Got the fire roaring at home last night , turned down the lights

Laid on one sofa whilst the cat laid on another

And we just chilled for a few  hours listening to  the early Talking Heads albums

Beautiful !

Hope you didn’t get too chilled. If you fell asleep you’d risk...

If he had some nibbles while listening, that would be buildings and food. :P

I thought they were reuniting or something you fucking tease.

That ship has long since sailed as Neil would confirm.

I guess the only thing that would get them back together is if David discovered  his management had embezzled him as per  Alanis Morrisette and there was no food left in the fridge so to speak.

DB was excellent at End of The Road a few years back with St Vincent !!!

most recent thing I was directed to by someone who is good friends with Chris & Tina suggested they'd be interested in one. I saw something that implied the same for Jerry, too.

So it's probably down to Byrne. How likely that is I don't really have a clue, cos he does stuff you wouldn't expect him to. I guess some will depend on how many other projects he has on the go.

Dunno. His attitudes towards playing TH stuff at his own shows has softened over the years so i don't think it's impossible, tho I do think it's unlikely.

Just noticed this thread, and also just played Psycho Killer a few minutes earlier than the observation of this thread. Not sure if that means it's time to go out and kill again, or just stay put drinking like a bastard and gobbling my wife's gabapentin tablets. Decisions, decisions.

I saw David Byrne with St Vincent at end of the road. He finished on Road to Nowhere with a full brass band. They were marching around the stage in single file in circles.

At the end they did an instrumental reprise and marched off stage. They weren't miced up so you could gradually hear them fading as they went further back stage.

I've also seen Brandon Flowers live.

Coincidentally just had Love This Giant on about 10 mins ago while I was decorating my tree. So fucking envious you got to see that show, sounds incredible.

Not really a big fan TBH, but was a great gig. Other headliners were Belle and Seb and Sigur Ros. Definitely went the right year!

I remember that year being unusually massive on the line-up side for them, I think that's the first year it got really on my radar, been intending to go every year since. I'm a huge St Vincent fan, and that album way my introduction to David Byrne. I think they were an EotR exclusive, or they just did EotR and London (possibly also Edinburgh International Fest?), either way I didn't get to see the show and I was gutted, that's my big white whale.... Well that, and Sufjan's Age Of Adz tour, and Taylor's Red tour, and Beyonce at Glastonbury.

Woah now. Don't go lumping me in with that. What is the matter with your teenage self?

If you watch the footage and clock the size of the #CashCrowd, it wasn't just the teenagers that decided that they had better things to do when the Man in Black rocked up.

Reckon Davey B will show up at any UK fests in 2018? I'll definitely be at EotR so if he were to be there again I'd be very up for that.

I worry that Latitude will nail him on an exclusive, to spite us. Or Shamabala; not my kind of game that Shambala.

similar here.  teenage me was there but didn't know who he was.  tbh, i'm sure he was only really on the bill due to RoF being on that Levis ad at the time.
