If you like: XTC, The English Beat, Bill Nelson, or Talking Heads, of course, you’ll dig this solo work from Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison.
About: Though he’s hardly a cult persona, Jerry Harrison has failed to be recognized as a crucial figure in the history of punk rock, a portion of the music which influenced it, and the styles which had grown out of punk more than 15 years later. Best known as the keyboard player and occasional guitarist of Talking Heads during the 1980s, Harrison had begun his career ten years before, playing with Jonathan Richman’s seminal Modern Lovers during the early ‘70s. He recorded several solo albums while on occasional hiatus from Talking Heads in the ‘80s, but when the band disintegrated in the late ‘80s, Harrison resumed his busy production schedule, working with some hot alternative acts. *John Bush
