BICYCLE DIARIES


I love David Byrne. I love Talking Heads, I loved True Stories, I love this huge musical building installation and I really love that someone with such a legacy can find time to collaborate with a young and up and coming band like Dirty Projectors. WHEN WILL THIS MAN STOP? I really hope the answer is never. Check out his new book Bicycle Diaries; we are not talking about your average tour by bike book here, though he does cover American cities (yes, we know San Francisco is Bike friendly but has big hills!) He also pedals in cities like Istanbul, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Sydney. As one might expect his interests are vast and drifting; one minute we are thinking about Emacs and the next Giant Megafauna... This book also features awesome little pictures-- generally not from his travels but instead put in place to aid with Byrne's descriptions.
