Would you just look at this photo containing three of the most genius-y geniuses (sans shirts) ever to enter a studio: David Byrne, Brian Eno, and Jon Hassell. Most likely this shot was taken during the recording of Talking Heads' Remain in Light, which Eno produced. The innovative trumpeter Hassell played some unearthly tones on that 1980 album's "Houses in Motion," an excellent piece of humid, hauntological rock. This pic is really just a flimsy excuse to remind you that Remain in Light was a paradigm-shifting, once-in-a-lifetime work of ethnodelic rock and a bold move by an established band who had no interest in resting on their laurels (they would do that later, post-Stop Making Sense).
