After their 1986 release ‘Colour Of Spring’ Talk Talk were riding high and with record company belief in the band soaring, they were given an open cheque book and a deadline free remit of creating their next album. The result of which was the more experiential sounding ‘Sprit Of Eden’, needless to say the record label were less than impressed when handed the intentionally uncommercial sounding album. The album itself is a memorising piece of music which stands up amazingly well today appealing to a broad section of fans including those of Radiohead, Miles Davis, Neil Young and The Velvet Underground. Read more about the album here.
Join us for what will surely be one of our most immersive sessions yet.
