Chronology: Talking Heads scene

Talking Heads take the stage in Chronology.

Chronology pulls together live performances from across rock band Talking Heads’ entire career, beginning with their earliest days at CBGB in New York City in the mid-1970s, through their commercial breakthrough several years later and on to international success in the 1980s.

The band completed their last tour in 1983, although they would continue to make successful albums throughout the decade before officially breaking up in 1991.

The Deluxe Edition DVD of Chronology is packaged in a hardback cover with a 48-page book that includes photographs and an essay by Lester Bangs (the one Philip Seymour Hoffman played in Almost Famous) written as a review of the Fear Of Music album for the Village Voice in 1979.

Commentary by members of Talking Heads and a 1978 interview with Heads leader and frontman David Byrne are included as bonus features.
