Album: True Stories
. . .
Because I lived in Fresno in 1986, I had to fly to London to see David Byrne’s directorial debut, True Stories (the film), in the theatre. Sure, technically, I was in the U.K. to be the best man at Tim & Jean’s wedding, but whatever with that, man: I was one of the first of my friends to see Byrne’s archly sincere film about a place he’d never live if you paid him. The film which, of course, landed him on the cover of Time magazine, which was still like a huge deal in the 1980s.
