From Jon S: "And You may Ask Yourself"....

(Scott) yes, I have been referring to my upcoming Talking Heads multi-part extravaganza, as usual, with a
band of which I REALLY love, I want to make sure I get it just right......Jon S provides some Talking Heads related stuff, as you can read about below, but most notable to me is one of my faves, David Byrne/brian Eno's fab "My Life In the Bush of Ghosts" (posted here long long ago) which would be worth the proce of admission for the amazing "America Is Waiting".......lotsa more worthwhile stuff here for you to get into before MY Talking Heads post knocks your ears off!
