[his life in the bush of ghosts]

Topic: Music

While we’re on the subject, David Byrne’s Sound page has some fascinating material, including Quicktime videos of America is Waiting and a live performance of Help Me Somebody, both from his groundbreaking collaboration with Brian Eno, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts.

Also, Byrne’s Journal — that’s like a blog, but without links — is sort of shockingly readable and interesting. For example, I greatly enjoyed Byrne’s musings on architecture and the riots in France, made all the more fascinating for being an insight into the mind that gave us More Songs About Buildings and Food and, of course, “Don’t Worry About the Government”:

My building has every convenience
It’s gonna make life easy for me
It’s gonna be easy to get things done
I will relax alone with my loved ones
