September 4, 2020 Jeffrey 1.5: Talking Heads

In this episode John and Gordon head stateside for new-wave-post-punk-pop maestros Talking Heads and rank their albums - a favourite of John's but a band that had largely passed Gordon by, so a voyage of discovery for the little fella!

The Talking Heads Jeffrey Podcast Playlist can be found here on Spotify and here on Deezer

There are quite a few documentary films (including this from The South Bank Show and Well How Did We Get Here? A Brief History of the Talking Heads) and interviews on YouTube we used in preparation for the podcast. Gordon also read Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa: The Adventures of "Talking Heads" in the 20th Century by David Bowman

We'd also recommend the excellent This Must Be The Talking Heads podcast - unfortunately this came out after our own Talking Heads podcast, so we couldn't use it as reference for our discussion.
