You've heard a lot about that fantubulous Fleetwood Mac tribute album. What is probably not on your radar is an upcoming tribute album for the provential 80s band, Talk Talk. Can we have a little sing-a-long now?
IT'S MY LIFE ... DON'T YOU FORGET ... IT'S MY LIFE ... IT NEVER ENDS
This tribute album is pretty impressive, so much so that it's spread out over two CDs. I can't name you two albums worth of Talk Talk songs, but I guess they are a major influence of today's musicians.
The one act that jumped out at me is Zero 7. It's their first released recording in three years. Then you got rock powerhouse White Lies, Sarah Worden of My Brightest Diamond, Fyfe Dangerfield of Guillemots, Richard Reed Barry of Arcade Fire, Jason Lytle of Granddaddy, Do Make Say Think, Joan As Police Woman and local gal Lia Ices.
As for their best known hit, Brit Band The TenFive Sixty put a cosmic, trance spin on "It's My Life". They are on the Fierce Panda label, who are releasing this compilation, that comes with oodles of extras. The deluxe edition comes with a book celebrating the 30 years of Talk Talk. All this fun stuff will be out on September 3.
