Still Don’t Make No Sense: The Music of Stop Making Sense

You’ve watched the film, heard the album and gone to the screenings in the Sugar Club, the Lighthouse and Electric Picnic. Now Playback bring you a live re-enactment of Talking Heads‘ Stop Making Sense.

Floor lamp? Check. Big suit? Check. A tape they’d like to play? Check. Come and watch as the band blast through all sixteen of the songs from the film, including classics like “Psycho Killer”, “Once in a Lifetime”, “Burning Down the House” and “This Must Be the Place”. 

Playback is an “album tribute band” made up of some of Dublin’s finest singers and musicians. They have previously performed Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde and David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane in full and have headlined shows at venues and events such as the Grand Social, Bello Bar and David Bowie Festival. They have expanded to an eight-piece for this show in order to do justice to the movie’s backing vocals, synth solos and conga workouts.   

Justin McCann – vocals, synth

Paula Size – vocals

Karen Williams – vocals

Alan Maguire – guitar

Gordon Dunning – bass
