You should hear this!: Talking Heads, 1980

This post will serve as the start of a new Friday tradition called “You should hear this!”  Every Friday I will post either a music video or live performance of a band that I think should absolutely be heard (or, er, watched.)  For this inaugural post I would like to present a performance of one of my favorite Taling Heads song, “Born Under Punches,” from their 1980 album Remain in Light.  Produced by Brian Eno, Remain in Light features the band in an artistic fury, adding African polyrhythms to their already off-kilter style.  This performance is taken from a 1980 concert in Rome, featuring experimental guitarist Adrian Belew, who would go on to join King Crimson one year later.
