Other musicians also regularly made appearances in concert and on the group's albums. The new wave style of Talking Heads combined elements of punk rock, art rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, world music, and Americana. Frontman and songwriter David Byrne contributed whimsical, esoteric lyrics to the band's songs, and emphasized their showmanship through various multimedia projects and performances. Some of their albums were produced by Brian Eno who also collaborated with Byrne. (Read more at Wikipedia)

Links to Peel

Peel was a fan of Talking Heads and quite often aired their music. All of the LPs made by the band were found in his record collection. On 06 September 1979 he played the last three tracks of their album "Fear of Music" without interruption. 

In 1984 Peel was booked to play at the Sunset Leisure Centre, Silloth. His choice of records was so badly received that he was forced from the stage and had to be escorted from the venue by the police for his own protection. According to Peel, the only record he had played that was in the charts was by Talking Heads.
