liking talking heads so young means i always enjoy those ‘what was the first record you ever bought?’ conversations, cuz buying ’77’ at the age of 8 is pretty much unbeatable compared to the usual admissions of buying whitesnake/billy idol/mc hammer etc etc as yr first entry into music.
Shit. That’s hardcore. I’ve trumped almost every record collector I’ve ever met by saying that I got Talking Heads’ Remain In Light as my first record at 12. But 77 at 8? Unbeatable.
