Retro Saturday (80s): Talk Talk

Just realising over the weeks and months that I've been doing this retro-Saturday thing, that there were so many cracking bands in the 1980s which never really got the recognition they deserved.

Someone on YouTube mentioned that Talk Talk were way ahead of their time and were the Radiohead/Coldplay of their day, such was the ambition and experimentation within their music.

They are best known for "It's My Life" of course, but I'd like to mention "Living In Another World" from 1986 which is another obscure favourite of mine. The video at isn't really much to write home about, but the song is a little masterpiece.
