Worshipping David Byrne – Please don’t stop making sense
If you never heard anything from David Bryne, start with the Talking Heads Album ‚Remain in Light‘ and check out the Talking Heads concert from 1981 in Rome on YouTube.
That’s a wonderful introduction to his cosmos of amazing work that began in 1975 when the band played their first gig as Talking Heads opening for the Ramones at the CBGB in New York City.
When David Byrne tours, he travels with
a folding bicycle, bringing it to cities like London, Berlin, Buenos Aires…
David Byrne has also released many solo albums in addition to collaborating with such artists as Robert Wilson and Brian Eno in the last fourty+ years. His art includes photography, a broadway show, installation works and several books. One of them is ‚Bicycle Diaries‘, which was published some years ago and is just a marvellous gem for Byrne-addicts and bike-people.
He has been riding a bicycle as his principal means of transportation since the 1980’s. When he tours, Byrne travels with a folding bicycle, bringing it to cities like London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Manila, New York, Detroit and San Francisco. ‚Bicycle Diaries‘ gives the reader an incredible insight into what Byrne is seeing and thinking as he pedals around these cities. The book is an enchanting celebration of bike riding and of the rewards of seeing the world at bike level. Go for a ride with this book – you won’t regret it.
And by the way: If any of you happen to know David Byrne and speak to him soon, give him our best regards. Maybe our surreal vision of the The-Educated-Cool-campaign will come true… once in a lifetime.
