Black 2 Comm 16th September 2018

Featuring Aretha Franklin, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, Eddie & The Hotrods and many others. Cheq out this performance of "Burning Down The House" by Talking Heads recorded at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December 1983. The footage was part of their "Stop Making Sense" film which starts with David Byrne singing accompanied by only a beatbox, then members of the extended band are introduced song by song. This is the first track to feature the full line up including Parliament-Funkadelic keyboard wiz Bernie Worrell. Note that all of the mic stands, keyboard stands and drum hardware have been sprayed black so as not to detract from the performers that are lit with only white light. This version of the song is a little faster than the original and has a much more energetic feel, complimented by Byrne and guitarist Alex Wier's running on the spot dance.
