David Byrne - In Spite of Wishing and Wanting
Now here´s a beauty. In 1999, David Byrne (ex- Talking Heads) hooked up with theatre guy Wim Vandekeybus to organise and compose music for a theatre play of Wim. Ultimately, the play got performed in the US, but I am not sure about rest of the world. The interesting part is, the CD for this was made as a limited edition only (though not numbered) but got only sold directly at the theatre venues or online, but not in any shops. So I guess, it´s quite rare, I heard only 3000 copies were made.
It features David Byrne at what he sometimes is known best for, quirky, strange pop/rock-tunes with catchy (or not...) percussion work. Covers with background information are included.
