Talking Heads „˜Psycho Killer“™ (greg wilson edit)

118 bpm

Previously limited DJ only vinyl / CD 2007.

Pressed in 2007 as „˜Gotta Tape I Wanna Play, I originally put this together for my US debut in October 2005, at APT in NYC – recording here:

I was a big fan of „˜Stop Making Sense“™, the Talking Heads concert from 1984, which was released as both a film and an album. It starts with David Byrne on an empty stage with just a ghetto blaster and acoustic guitar, performing one of the band“™s best-known tracks, „˜Psycho Killer, which was originally released in 1977. The beats, courtesy of a Roland TR-808 drum machine, re-appear in extended form over the closing credits. The idea of an edit was there from the moment I bought „˜Stop Making Sense“™ on VHS back in the 80″™s, but the sound quality from the video wouldn“™t have been up to scratch. However, when it was released on DVD later down the line, this was no longer a problem, and I was able to let the beats run on their own for a couple of minutes before the guitar enters and the track really kicks in.

The edit took off in a big way for me, and later with DJ“™s including Andrew Weatherall and Optimo. It subsequently became a major festival tune for me and featured in my Essential Mix in 2009 ( More recently it appeared on my Festival Anthems mix (, and given this, I thought it was a good time to share here.

There“™s more info about „˜Stop Making Sense“™ on the blog, as this was last month“™s featured album:
