"Home is where I want to be, Pick me up and turn me around."
According to the book jacket, David Bowan is the biographer that the Talking Heads deserve. Talking Heads are one of my favorite bands, but I'm not sure how accurate that statement is. Bowan offers up a serviceable, occasionally insightful, history and analysis of the band, which is marred by his personal, expressive writing style that, like so many critics, owes something to Lester Bangs. What does emerge that I didn't really know about was the tension between David Byrne and Tina Weymouth. Any Heads fan will enjoy it, even if the band deserves better. I'd also recommend Byrne's book, "How Music Works," and Jonathan Lethem's book on "Fear of Music."
