Talking Heads – Speaking in Tongues
JM: I suppose this one is a bit more of a down-to-earth' record. It combines music with an artist that I love – Robert Rauschenberg who designed the cover. 'Burning Down The House' is a fantastic tune. It has some of my favourite people on it, like Wally Badarou, Bernie Worrell and Tina Weymouth is one of the greatest bassists. Back in the day we actually did a remix for David Byrne. He's a great songwriter. I saw them live many times. But I've actually got the limited edition, clear Robert Rauschenberg design plus a poster which is signed by all of them as well.
