Back on the Big Screen as part of the Leeds International Film Festival On Tour and our own* Doc Of The Month *strand. Stop Making Sense in its full digital restoration is still the best concert film experience of all time.

Talking Heads designed an unforgettable stage show, building famously from the opening Psycho Killer, with David Byrne and ghetto blaster, to the rapturous version of Al Green’s Take Me to the River with full band and backing choir, taking in classics along the way like Once in a Lifetime and Girlfriend is Better, complete with gigantic business suit.
