Album: Talk Talk Talk
. . .
I’d love to know what the reaction in the room when Duncan Kilburn first showed the rest of the P-Furs the crazy, dissonant, spiraling saxophone riff that anchors “Dumb Waiters.”
I’d like to think that the rest of the band broke out in laughter. Not because it was funny, because it was so weird and amazing and perfect, that joyous laughter truly was the only possible response to it. Like, how in the fuck are we going to base a song around this?
As it turned out, the answer was “very carefully.”
