Can you find the gun in 'Man With A Gun?'



In this hot take world we live in, expect an argument to break out on the talking head shows with the mention of guns. In a much simpler '80s, a Man With A Gun was just a cool song by a member of The Talking Heads.

Last year we covered Talking Head guitarist Jerry Harrison with his driving tune Rev It Up and we follow that up with another choice pick off his 1989 Casual Gods album entitled Man With A Gun. The mysterious Man With A Gun did not chart and in its sleek video, the appearance of a gun is absent. It is interesting to note that an instrumental version of Man With A Gun appeared two years earlier in the 1986 movie Something Wild, directed by Jonathon Demme who piloted the documentary Stop Making Sense, the hailed concert film by The Talking Heads.
