Talk Talk

Talk Talk

Profile:
British synth pop / art rock band founded in 1981 in London and disbanded in 1991.
The group had a string of international hit singles including Talk Talk, Today, It's My Life, Such A Shame, Life's What You Make It and Living In Another World.
They eventually abandoned the synth pop style completely with the album The Colour Of Spring in 1986 and the band's commercial appeal receded, but their critical reputation increased as they moved to a more experimental form.
Their final two albums, Spirit Of Eden and Laughing Stock, were highly acclaimed and remain influential to experimental alternative rock genres.

Tim Friese-Greene was recruited to assist with the recording of their second album It's My Life and he soon became the band's producer and de facto fourth member as a keyboardist and Hollis' frequent songwriting partner, so he co-wrote all the songs on The Colour Of Spring, Spirit Of Eden and Laughing Stock. Although a major contributor to the band's studio output, Tim Friese-Greene did not regularly play with the touring band, and was absent from the band's publicity material.
