Talking Heads: Psycho Killer

I am not a really big Talking Heads fan, but this is just an outstanding clip.



Check out Tina Weymouth playing the Fender Mustang bass...it's nearly as big as she is. As if that wasn't visually interesting enough, the bass is turned way the hell up in the mix for this song. I swear you hear it over Jerry Harrison's guitar.

By the way, the clip is from a British music show called "The Old Grey Whistle Test"...you can buy a DVD or two with these clips; in fact, the Scranton Public Library has the DVD with this clip, which is where I saw it for the first time.
