Flashback: Talk Talk Lip Synch

March 5th, 2010 by Daniel Kreps Leave a reply »

In this week’s Flashback, we present not one but two fantastically lip-synched performances by one of the most underrated bands of the ’80s, Talk Talk. With all the reunions revving up, from Public Image Ltd. to Faith No More to Devo, we keep hoping that Mark Hollis and crew will get back together for the first time since 1991’s Laughing Stock, but with Hollis gone underground in recent years, it seems unlikely. Up top is Talk Talk’s mouthed performance of “Life What’s You Make It” from a 1986 Top of the Pops, while after the jump we have Talk Talk’s last television appearance, a lip-synched, edited version of the Spirit of Eden classic “I Believe in You.” And to the festival that somehow coaxes these guys out of retirement, consider us your first ticket buyers.
