Marquee Moon is definately one of the greatest albums of all time. If you listen to it, you can totally hear how the Talking Heads got their sound. Richard Lloyd is amazing also. For those of you who are into music theory, check out his website. Go to the Questions page. He explains why the guitar is tuned the way it is, the circle of fifths, etc. He's incredible. In fact, he just started writing for Guitar World, the cheesy mag that has tab in it. The band totally jams and the funny thing is, they were considered punk and punk was all about the 2 minute song and no solos and they come along and go, no way, you can be punk and still jam! They rule. I even have a tab of Marquee Moon from Total Guitar (out of England) that includes a cd of backing tracks. Fun to play.
