The thing that has always struck me as fascinating for classic rock era bands is how mature as musicians, songwriters, and creative minds they usually sounded even on debut and early records. As a 25 year old in NYC’s CBGB’s punk scene, David Byrne could have made some much shittier music. But he and the rest of the Talking Heads put out the brilliant debut record ‘Talking Heads 77.’ It bridges the gap between the punk side of the scene and this new sort of art rock before it was incredibly pretentious.
