Talking Heads

For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we turn to this killer Talking Heads concert that’s been making the rounds online, an 80-minute black-and-white performance filmed at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, N.J., about a month after the release of 1980’s Remain in Light.

  1. El Arreglardo

    Wow! What a flashback. The best Heads tour ever. The memories are crystal clear.

  2. Scott Stalcup

    Where did they find this? In a shotgun shack? Another part of the world? Behind the wheel of a large automobile? In a beautiful house with a beautiful wife?

    Well? How did it get here?

  3. Brett James

    Fantastic show. Black and white even better. A gem. Wish this was on DVD.

  4. Chronic Mumblings

    Never seen anything like that before.

    (Fantastic version of Born Under Punches, and a great concert all around!)

  5. I can’t believe this was 35 years ago. The memories come flooding back. Not to sound like my Dad, but man those were the days.
