the cover is all silvery


I haven’t heard David Byrne’s new album, “Grown Backwards,” but I can tell you he’s got Eggers on his face.

CD face, that is!

[laugh track]

What I mean is: There’s a spiral of modified copyright text on the CD which is both “humorous” and “adorable.” I have defended Byrne a million times (on the basis of Talking Heads, but also “Rei Momo“) and will again (if he had simply come up with the title for “Crosseyed and Painless,” I’d love him) but this does not augur well.
