 Notes & Reviews
2010 two CD collaboration between the former Talking Heads leader and British Dance music maestro Fatboy Slim. Here Lies Love is a song cycle - improbably poignant, decidedly surreal, surprisingly thought provoking - about the rise and fall of the Philippines' notorious Imelda Marcos. It was conceived by David Byrne; composed by Byrne and Fatboy Slim and performed by a dream cast drawn from the worlds of Indie Rock, Alt Country, R&B and Pop. Byrne's taste in collaborators is as imaginative as it is impeccable, including Cyndi Lauper, Steve Earle, Dap-Kings vocalist Sharon Jones, and Natalie Merchant. Along with vocals turns from such stars as Tori Amos and the B-52's Kate Pierson, Byrne works with rising indie rockers St. Vincent and My Brightest Diamond; New York chanteuses Nellie McKay and Martha Wainwright; and dance-music divas Roisin Murphy and Santigold. Byrne himself appears as the voice of imperialistic America on 'American Troglodyte,' a send-up that wouldn't have seemed out of places in Talking Heads' True Stories.
