No Talking Just Head

Chris Frantz, Jerry Harrison, and Tina Weymouth are the Heads not talking to David Byrne anymore; instead, guest stars abound. Debbie Harry moans the title song to good, torchy effect. Other singers include Violent Femmes’ Gordon Gano and XTC’s Andy Patridge. Percolating, Tom Tom Clubby beats abound, but severe melodic aimlessness and all the guest voices prevent No Talking Just Head from cohering as anything more than an energetic stunt. Best cut: ”Punk Lolita,” with Weymouth warbling.
