Speaking in Tongues are the UK's premier tribute to Talking Heads.
Speaking In Tongues recreate the spectacle of Talking Heads at their peak, playing hits from ‘Stop Making Sense’, the seminal concert film, as well as groundbreaking songs such as "Once in a Lifetime", "Girlfriend is Better", "This Must Be The Place", "Blind", "Psycho Killer", "Burning Down The House", "Road To Nowhere" and more.
Talking Heads were an American new wave and avant-garde band formed in 1975 in New York City and active until 1991. The band comprised David Byrne (lead vocals and guitar),Chris Frantz (drums and backing vocals), Tina Weymouth (bass and backing vocals) and Jerry Harrison(keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals).The new wave style of Talking Heads combined elements of punk rock, art rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world music, and Americana.
Singer Chris Apthomas gives his own unique take on the geeky frontman, adding to the driving rhythms and funky grooves to produce a 'Once in a Lifetime' experience!
Tonight they we'll be playing all of the '77' album, and all of 'Remain in Light' too!
."..this absolutely bang on reconstruction of the many faces of Talking Heads would surely merit a benign nod from the great Mr Byrne himself.” The Canteen, Bristol
