In more Atomic anticipation, some kind soul has uploaded the following live footage of Talking Heads to Youtube:

Talking Heads w/ Adrian Belew
December 1980
“Live in Rome”

Pro-shot live performance of Talking Heads. Another great show from the Adrian Belew era of the Talking Heads. The filming is much different than the Germany show from the same tour, this is much more in your face and the Italians use many different and interesting camera angles.

Setlist (click titles for youtube link):

* Psycho Killer
* Stay Hungry
* Cities
* I Zimbra
* Drugs
* Take Me to the River
* Crosseyed and Painless
* Life During Wartime
* Houses in Motion
* Born under Punches
* The Great Curve


Tina Weymouth, Rome 1980

Definitely worth your time watching if you’re a fan, or even if you’re not – fantastic stuff.
