Talking Heads T Shirts

The Talking Heads T Shirts Collection at T Shirt Subway.

Talking Heads t-shirts are for me one of the coolest retro music t-shirts you can buy and that isn’t just because we’re massive fans. It’s the unique style the band brought with them and their ability to continue to follow more artistic ideals than follow the convention to commercial success and that’s what makes the band and front man David Byrne stand out. In the nicest possible way the band were weird but in a beautiful sense and we hope our Talking Heads t-shirts are the same too.

Here are a couple of our favourites and a little bit about them to get you started and help make your mind up and we start with the Talking Heads Psycho Killer t-shirt. Fans of the song know there was a chilling but mesmeric sound to his song that just cut to the bone and the almost intense stuttering gave some indication of the shaken mind the song is about and hopefully we have done that justice with this particular t-shirt.

The Stop Making Sense t-shirt is possibly the most popular and it just embodies what was for me personally their stand out album success. They have several top albums but this one reached out to me in my early teens and it was just making me think about music and the world and that’s probably why this Stop Making Sense tee shirt is my favourite.

The Fear of Music t-shirt is so simple in its design but it says everything anybody needs to know in the first few seconds of seeing it. It says Talking Heads and it says Fear of Music and fans know what the two together means instantly.

We couldn’t have a Talking Heads collection without making a specific David Byrne t-shirt for fans to enjoy because after all he was the leading figure that we all associate with the band and whilst no success is every achieved single handed and he would point that out he remains the figurehead in our minds to this day so take a bow Mr David Byrne.

Our Once In A Lifetime t-shirt is a homage to what we believe is one the of greatest tracks not just from Talking Heads but from the entire generation surrounding it because the song just rolls through and epic tale of music and melody and we absolutely love it. We hope that is enough to get you started on your Talking Heads t-shirts collection and we hope you enjoy it.

A Little Bit About The Enigma of Talking Heads

Talking Heads are the New Wave groundbreaking band that formed in 1975 New York City. They were led by the frontman David Byrne, who offered up whimsical, esoteric lyrics in an punk/avant-garde showman style, with Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and Jerry Harrison completing the line-up.

They formed in 1974 as a threesome (all but Harrison) called The Artistics after meeting at the Rhode Island School of Design. Within a year the group disolved but all three moved to New York, eventually all living together. Talking Heads was formed and their first gig was opening for the Ramones in 1975, with Harrison joining in 1977.

They were one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the 80s and in 2002 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone magazine listed 4 of their albums in their top 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and they also featured at number 100 in their 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

They were pioneers in their era across numerous genres and, while they will always be one of the faces of the New Wave movement, they released numerous cross-genre classic's such as Psycho Killer, Road to Nowhere and And She Was.
