I came to the Talking Heads later in life than I’d like. I always enjoyed the hits I would hear. Psycho Killer and Once In A Lifetime were mainstays on my burned CDs. For whatever reason, I never went further than that until I heard David Byrne on WTF with Marc Maron.

Maron brought up the album Fear Of Music several times. He wouldn’t stop praising it. I respect the hell out of Marc Maron. I listened to the album he spoke so highly of, and my brain was broken open. I spent years not listening to the Talking Heads and changed that soon after.

Now, the Talking Heads are back (in pog form)! In celebration of the rerelease of Stop Making Sense, the group shared the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater to reminisce with Stephen Colbert. Colbert often wears his heart on his sleeve, and that is immediately evident as he’s joined by this band that he has loved for almost fifty years.

It is a long interview (in late-night terms), but it’s worth watching to see these rockers reflect. It’s a shame they have spent more time broken up than together. Nothing good lasts, but a palpable joy emits from them when they are together. At least we have these moments where they can reconnect and reminisce.
