The next AudioCollective event will feature the live concert film Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads s on Saturday 27th January at The Swan.
Stop Making Sense is a 1984 concert film featuring a live performance by Talking Heads. Directed by Jonathan Demme, it was shot over the course of three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983, as the group was touring to promote their new album Speaking in Tongues. The movie is notable for being the first made entirely using digital audio techniques. The band raised the budget of $1.2 million themselves. The title comes from the lyrics of the song “Girlfriend Is Better“: “As we get older and stop making sense…”. The film has been hailed by Leonard Maltin as “one of the greatest rock movies ever made”, and Pauline Kael of The New Yorker described it as “…close to perfection.”
Th AC crew saw the film at the TOTNES FESTIVAL in the summer and frankly couldnt agree more! This is set to be a real treat.
The film will be played on new equipment supplied by the AC crew and also include discussion (not too heavy!) video footage (of the performer) and a chance to bring along and play your own related vinyl. If you dont have any vinyl but do have ideas for related music we can play requests via our new high fidelity TIDAL streamer.
Each month we’ll be giving away a fresh copy of the vinyl (DVD in this case) in our free to enter raffle too …
