Road to Nowhere (Talking Heads, 1985)

Eastern Standard Time Skatalites Talking Heads' version

“A resigned, even joyful look at doom, at our deaths and at the apocalypse… (always looming, folks)” These are the words of David Byrne when talking about this song he wrote and published in 1985, included in the Little Creatures album. We are big fans of Talking Heads (and David Byrne of course) and our sweet Public will get very soon what we mean. Taking to Jamaica this masterpiece of pop-new wave-rock has been a deep pleasure, especially while hybridizing it together with the amazing theme from “Eastern Standard Time” by The Skatalites. Just to remind everyone, when still necessary, that everything is possible with Ska music.
