Classic Album Sundays presents Talking Heads "Remain in Light"
Sunday, April 7, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Talking Heads' "Remain in Light" saw the band melding African polyrhythms, music-making methodologies and mythologies, with their own distinctive funk-rock. They attempted to collaborate more as a band, jamming long instrumental sections which producer Brian Eno would then loop and use to further spur the creative process. The album is also a great time capsule of downtown New York City circa 1980 uniting the dance music, new wave, hip hop and experimental music scenes.
Join us at 5 pm to listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this LP such as Fela Kuti, Funkadelic, Sly & Robbie and Brian Eno. You can also order pizzas made in the the Hanbury Arms brick oven and the Hanbury are kindly offering two-for-one pizzas to CAS attendees.
Doors close at 6:45 and at 7:00 pm Simon Stuart relays the story behind the album.
