“The name of this song is ‘New Feeling’, “caws David Byrne, leading his scratchily minimalist neuro-funk quartet in 1977, “and that’s what it’s about”. Skip forward four years and the band are expanded to a 10-piece polyrhythmic cosmic P-funk troupe and Byrne is taking a Central Park stage to croon that “the world moves upon a woman’s hips”. How they got from A to B is documented on this terrifically thorough live reissue, double the length of the original vinyl, which includes the entire set list of their 1980/81 shows?and a previously unreleased and mesmeric nine-minute “Born Under Punches”.
