Psycho Killer 1978

At first, it struck me how young they all look here, even in comparison to the Stop Making Sense movie a few years later. But then I checked their dates on Wikipedia, and they were all in their late twenties even when this was recorded.

Talking Heads: still one of the best bands I have ever seen live!

Awesome clip. Very high quality. Jerry Harrison fresh from his contribution to Modern Lovers' great 1st album. They seem to have a restrained, coiled energy to both their bodies and their music. That kind of tension and potential explosivity within a surface calmness made them a seriously exciting live band.
