    Wordy Rappinghood

    Featuring special guest Chris Franz, founding member of Talking Heads.

    In their final collaboration with producer and song-writer Brian Eno, Talking Heads carefully sculpt their musical ideas into their most critically acclaimed album. Featuring a deep dive into the hero track "Once In A Lifetime" we breakdown the groove and lyrical inspiration, and learn how it was released to mixed reaction, something that's unthinkable considering it went on to earn it's place among the most iconic songs of the era.

    Tracklist:
    Born Under Punches (The heat goes on)
    Crosseyed and Painless
    The Great Curve
    Once in a Lifetime (Hero track)

    Seen and not seen
    Listening Wind
    The Overload
    Unison (Unfinished outtake)
    Double groove (Unfinished outtake)
