True story: Maia and I are at a bar waiting to interview Lady Sovereign when the bartender — who at at this early hour is just opening up the joint and spinning songs from his iPod — plays the song “Strange Overtones” from the David Byrne / Brian Eno Everything That Happens Will Happen Today album over the stereo. This prompts Maia to turn to me and ask if I’ve ever seen the video of David Byrne interviewing himself. I say no. Until now.
This hilarious video of David Byrne interviewing himself was originally shot for a Talking Heads‘ film concert by Jonathan Demme.
