Turn it up!

Talk Talk. Any live recordings?

Recommended Posts

With the very sad passing of Mark Hollis I've been like I'm sure a lot of us listening to all the great Talk Talk and one solo albums. I stumbled on some live footage on youtube of the song Give it up and was pretty blown away. I always tend to think of Talk Talk as a studio band and had never seen or heard any live material before. Anyone here ever see them live and are there any live recordings/ bootlegs out there apart from the London 86 album?

Cheers

Don’t forget that Colour of Spring was the last album that they toured so you will find nothing post ‘86. I think the last ‘live’ appearance was on Dutch TV with the edited single version of I Believe You from Spirit of Eden but if memory serves they mimed to the track ie didn’t actually play live.

Mark supposedly hated playing live and would drink heavily before performances. I think this, as much as the difficulty in reproducing the sound of the later records live, was the reason they stopped touring.
