David Byrne Shares True Stories From "True Stories"

In this archival interview from 2018, Cap speaks with Talking Heads' David Byrne about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and the first ever edition of that film's complete soundtrack. The film was Byrne's directorial debut and as it plainly puts it right at the start is "about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas."

The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study - processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art.
