Limited 1 x 140g 12" Green vinyl album

When they burst out of the New York underground/CBGBs movement, the Heads stood apart from the pack because not only were they unlike anything that had gone before, they were even anomalous to their contemporaries. A million miles from the detached irony of Blondie or the willful primitivism of the Ramones, Talking Heads virtually invented geek-rock, setting the stage for everyone from the Violent Femmes to They Might Be Giants. Lyrically, David Byrne came off as the guy who thought too much about everything. Fortunately, he also happened to be a unique visionary, whose quirky, hyper-cerebral modernism echoed the work of poet John Ashbery and "serious" composer Robert Ashley.
All this high-mindedness doesnt detract from the infectious rock & roll appeal of the tunes on the bands debut album, though. Their twitchy, preppies-on-amphetamines rhythms and semi-neurotic gestalt fueled tunes like twisted anthem "Psycho Killer" and the jubilant "Pulled Up". Byrnes high, yelping tenor was the perfect complement to the bands tightly-wound but kinetic rhythms, and 77 is an auspicious debut.
