    WHOA!

    Awesome live show. Caught him last night.

    Done the first half as a 4 piece band (drums, percussion, bass, guitar). Done a good mix of old Heads tunes and newer solo ones. Then about half way was joined by a 6-piece string section.

    Byrnes stage manner was (as always) hilarious 'uhh.. these are golf shoes. I don't play golf though. I took the uhhh things out though. I kept getting stuck to the stage. Paul took those fuck...uh... annoy..no fucking... things out for me. He knows a lot about golf shoes'

    Band was tight as a drum. watching the percussion guy and the drummer work off each other was magic. And Byrne voice sounds EXACTLY like it does on CD.

    Heads/Byrne are not everyones cup of tea I know, but even if this guy doesnt fit the 'tradional rock song' formula, seeing this band perform live, they rocked just as hard as anyone I've ever seen.

    A proverbial wall of sound, and probably the best live show I have ever been to. If you see he's in your area, GO!

    I have never even tried listening to any of his solo stuff. (Is it any good?) I wouldn't mind seeing a "Head's" reunion, but that's one band with too much bad-blood for some odd reason.

    His solo stuff is pretty good. Some of it gets a little too bogged down in his 'global music' experiments. 'uh oh' and 'david byrne' are pretty solid albums. hos new one 'look into the eyeball' is ok but pretty mellow.

    If you've got winmx or something similar, I'd recommend the songs 'hanging upside down', 'she's mad', 'back in the box', 'buck naked', 'angels', 'like humans do', marching through the wilderness' or 'dance on vaseline' as reasonable pointers

    I got both those Casual Gods albums in the cupboard somewhere on tape. Might dig 'em up on the weekend for a spin. I got a Tom Tom club one in there too somewhere but it was pretty shithouse.

    Yeah, that sounds like a cool show - not too familiar with his solo stuff - don't know why these bands/musicians have to get so hateful...

    Well, they plan to put it behind them for the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame induction, but that will probably be it. Still, that's probably all the Eagles planned to do...
