No Room For Squares Session 11 – Talk Talk – Laughing Stock (1991)
January 27 @ 19 h 00 min - 23 h 59 min
“I don’t think of songwriting as pure inspiration, just something that comes to you in a blinding flash. It isn’t. […] The last thing in the world I would want is to be thought of as a disposable group. I want to write stuff that you’ll still be able to listen to in ten years time…still think of as a good song then.” – Mark Hollis, 1982
In their masterpiece and testament, “Laughing Stock” Talk Talk deconstruct the rock/pop song structures and slowly build up a deep album that mixes post-rock guitar strum with jazzy drum playing, chamber music hints and improvisation. Almost a year since Mark Hollis´s death, we would love to celebrate his work stepping again into the emotional room he created with this LP.
Stay for a chat afterwards and enjoy the exclusive NO ROOM FOR SQUARES cocktails!
