Shit Talk Talent Borrows, Genius Steals
posted by April 22 at 11:54 AMon
After a couple decades of lazy avoidance, I recently spent some quality time with the recorded output of Talk Talk and the Fall, and learned some things that are probably common knowledge to many but were new to me.
Lesson one: Radiohead owes Talk Talk a gazillion dollars.
Lesson two: For the duration of 1992, Pavement (pictured above) was essentially a Fall cover band (and one that didn’t even bother to come up with a clever “Hell’s Belles” pun-style name.)
For proof of lesson one, consult Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock.
For proof of lesson two, consult the Fall’s “New Face in Hell.”
That is all.
