Record Collector Issue 544 (May 2023) Talking Heads

TALKING HEADS - Post-punk before punk? Talking Heads were already way ahead of their time when they first played CBGB in 1975, and their evolution across their first four albums was extraordinary. We meet rhythm section Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth to take us back through those years
HAIRCUT 100 - More than 40 years since they brought their brand of fresh-faced funk to Top Of The Pops, Nick Heyward tells the story of Pelican West and their subsequent demise
COURTEENERS - Stadium-fillers in their native Northwest, largely ignored by we poncey Southern media types, Liam Fray and friends nonetheless continue to break records with the minimum of fuss
STEVE MASON - The former Beta Band man is still shifting creative shape in various guises. He looks over his back catalogue with typical frankness
RON SEXSMITH - As he releases a new album the Canadian songwriter discusses coming to terms with his role as one of music’s great men out of time
EDDIE PILLER - In these photo extracts from a new book, the Acid Jazz founder recalls a time before he made his name, as a teenage face on the late 70s/80s mod revival scene
THE SMITHEREENS - Emerging from the New Jersey alt-rock scene in the early 80s, this quartet channelled vintage beat pop and girl group influences for an MTV generation. And some of us remember them fondly...
FROM THE VAULTS - Reissues and box sets from B.E.F, The Pretty Things and Wishbone Ash lead our monthly trawl
NEW ALBUMS - Sparks, The Lemon Twigs and Everything But The Girl’s latest works are given rigorous critical analysis
BOOKS - Kate Bush’s lyrics, a history of Goth and early noughties pop documented
SINGLES - 45s from a varied bunch, from Weezer to The Chills to Tot Taylor
FILMS - The story of the newly reissued Dance Craze from the cinematographer
LIVES - Show reports including a backstage chat with The Zombies
