Talking Heads have achieved the status of rock legends. With unforgettable hits including "Take Me to the River", "Burning Down the House" and "Psycho Killer", and a Hollywood film of their live performances, the band, formed in New York, 1970, have always been musical pioneers. Their ground-breaking fusion of different influences and styles - rock, funk, ska, reggae, country, Afro-Brazilian rhythms - combined with the relentlessly hip lead singer David Byrne has curiously afforded Talking Heads mainstream success. In "FA FA FA FA FA FA" David Bowman charts the early years, the worldwide success and eventual acrimonious break-up of the band. With unprecedented access to the original members the book is teaming with incident, rock personalities and fascinating musical insights capturing one of the most charismatic and individual groups of the twentieth century.
