Drugs (Electricity)  performed by  Talking Heads  (1980)
From: USA
Mood: freaked out funk
Recommended by robert[o] [profile] on Saturday 6th November 2004

An outstanding live reading of this song recorded by Talking Heads’ “big band” on the tour to support “Remain in Light” in 1980. Augmenting their original quartet with six extra players, the sound of the group is huge and funky, but appropriately paranoid. Check out the use the of Adrian Belew’s freaky guitar textures – here between stints w/Bowie and Robert Fripp’s soon to be reformed King Crimson, and Dolette McDonald’s cinematic background vocals on the song’s break. (It’s all very Morricone-damaged, I think). And David Bryne is @ the absolute height of his powers, here.

from The Name of the Band is Talking Heads, available on CD (Rhino)

Other Versions: This Mortal Coil
