Been a kid of the 1980’s and the youngest of the family my sister & Brother in law are big fans of Talking Heads exposing me to the music of Byrne. Its one of those old cliches like a mature wine it only getter better as it gets older and that seem to be the same with music, as a youngster I probably despised the music but now in mid 30’s I appreciate it. You may not think it but alot of current indie pop bands have alot to thank David Byrne and Talkings for there music style you may not here it in the later stuff but the early days you do, Franz Ferdinand are a prime example of the inspiration.
Shot with multiple cameras over several concerts during ‘The Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno Tour’, the film blends the energy and charisma of classic Talking Heads with the heartfelt pathos of David Byrne and Brian Eno’s most recent collaboration.
Between the songs, the film achieves an unprecedented intimacy with David Byrne and the band, documenting behind-the-scenes auditions, rehearsals, and interviews with key players while revealing the creative process that led to the show’s unique fusion of pop music and modern dance.
RIDE, RISE, ROAR celebrates Byrne’s extensive career as a musician and testifies to the creativity that keeps him going today.
RIDE, RISE, ROAR will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD in UK & Ireland from May 30th, stay tuned for a review.
