Tribute album to Talk Talk on it’s way

May 8, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

News has reached us that a tribute album to Talk Talk is on its way and along with a series of special guests we have also learned that e.g.  Alan Wilder aka Recoil has recorded a cover for a forthcoming Talk Talk tribute album and book. Also included on the tribute album are The Lovetones, Anthony and the Johnsons, Chris Walla from Death Cab For Cutie, Turin Brakes, and Stars Of The Lid amongst many others.

In a comment on the Recoil blog Alan Wilder says: “In direct opposition to their commercial decline, my interest in the group increased as their more avant garde leanings came to the forefront. ‘The Colour Of Spring’ (1986) was an excellent but transitional album where one could visibly see the band mutating from well-crafted, intelligent pop into something much deeper and more thought- provoking. It reflected producer Tim Friese-Greene’s more fluid and melodic keyboard arrangements with a far more expansive production. However, the revelation that followed – ‘Spirit of Eden’ – was still totally unexpected. This has to be one of my all-time favourite albums. Mind-blowingly brilliant in its diversity, minimalism, atmospherics, musicianship and topped off with the voice which found it’s true position floating painfully over the top (in the best possible way). Whenever I’m stumped for something to listen to, I reach for this album to restore my faith in all that is good about modern music.”

Talk Talk was an English musical group, active from 1981 to 1991. The group had a string of international hit singles including “Today”, “Talk Talk”, “It’s My Life”, “Such a Shame”, “Dum Dum Girl”, “Life’s What You Make It” and “Living in Another World”.
