Talk Talk: Tomorrow Started

The progression of this band from when this was recorded in 1984 to Laughing Stock in 1991 is simply astounding and well worth investigation. Spirit of Eden from 1988 is an absolute work of genius.

Spirit of Eden is a phenomenal record. Hollis seems an interesting character. The Quietus did an interesting feature on Laughing Stock recently actually


#1044

Tried to bankrupt his record label with Laughing Stock, over 100 musicians used over a year long recording, 90% of which was discarded. A Kevin Shields job.

Shouldn’t indie music be called “indo” music in Ireland?

Ian McCulloch holding a cigarette in the same hand as he’s holding his microphone in. You can’t do that anymore as smoking is banned on stage now.

Game’s gone.
