Album: The Name of This Band is Talking Heads
. . .
It’s pretty much lore now how Talking Heads realized how the four of them were never going to be able to replicate the dense, layered sound they and Brian Eno had created for Remain in Light, which is where the idea for the expanded lineup came from. And in fact, it was originally only going to be for a couple of shows: the Heatwave Festival and the Central Park gig, both in August, 1980. But they were so successful that Sire ponied up for a full tour, and Talking Heads never performed a full show as a four-piece ever again.
