Rising Stars, Falling Stars – We Must Have Music!: "Stop Making Sense"

STOP MAKING SENSE, 1984

Soon a new edition of the series awaits us, with particular gems selected and presented by our archive expert Vaginal Davis with Daniel Hendrickson. But right now it's still about music. On September 27 the concert film STOP MAKING SENSE (Jonathan Demme, USA 1984) can be seen, which begins with David Byrne playing the song "Psycho Killer" solo on an acoustic guitar. Song by song and musician by musician, the other band members gradually assemble on stage until the Talking Heads are complete. Jonathan Demme filmed the band at a performance at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles.
