request – talk talk, live

December 17, 2007

not much i can say about talk talk that has not been said (written, repectively) already. a great band already in their “pop period” – and even more interesting when they committed commercial suicide and made extremly unique and beautiful music. if you are not familiar with their body of work, and you should be!, then i recommend you head over to stefan of paris for a full overview. as a bonus you get mark hollis‘ solo record. absolutely fantastic stuff.

UPDATE: for more “music after talk talk” i recommend you visit un avis en passant. you have the chance again to download mark hollis and both records by o’rang (talk talk without mark hollis). definitly recommended!

but let’s get back to the request: i heard that there are talk talk bootlegs (i.e. unauthorized live recordings) around but i never came across one. but lately the in the vaults-blog posted a live recording of talk talk at the hammersmith odeon, london, from 08-05-1986.


interested? get it here. or get it here.

i offered over at the vaults to put up the only official talk talk live recording: talk talk – london 1986.



the offer has been taken up – so get it here. and enjoy! and since i have it from somewhere off the net: thank’s to the original uploader.

and while we’re at it: i think the next ones comes from the nice people over at sfrp – it is a
talk talk live
recording from 1984 in holland. also a great quality bootleg – the tracklist reads as follows:

01. Such A Shame
02. My Foolish Friend
03. Have You Heard The News
04. The Party’s Over
05. Dum Dum Girl
06. Tomorrow Started
07. It’s My Life
08. Talk Talk
09. Call In The Night Boy
10. Hate
11. Mirror Man
12. Does Caroline Know
13. Renee

get it here.

so – that should be enough talk talk live for the moment (well, more i do not have, anyway…).
