AWESOME deluxe reissue of this essential, classic album! This is a legendary early eighties funky post punk oddity featuring David Byrne of the mighty Talking Heads and ambient pioneer Brian Eno of Roxy Music/No New York fame. The two were working together quite a bit at this point as Brian Eno worked as producer on a string of fantastic, classic Talking Heads albums and some of the band's spin-off projects - of which this album is definitely the best. Wonky tape loops, vocal samples of Lebanese singers, fiery preachers and exorcists, mutant disco beats, noise squalls, and funky guitar collide into an absolutely perfect album of punk/pop/world experimentalism. You need this! Includes the definitive disco not disco track The Jezebel Spirit, as caned by DJs from Larry Levan to Daniele Baldelli. What's more, this deluxe reissue comes with seven previously unreleased bonus tracks and a bonus DVD of Bruce Connors film Mea Culpa! HIGHLY recommended!
