Nothing But Flowers (A Tale)

Talking Heads - Nothing But Flowers (Lillywhite Mix)

A decade after being schoolmates, I ran into Steve and he asked me to remix this. The break with Kirsty’s harmonies and Johnny’s jangly 12 string blew me away!

Halfway thru mixing, Kirsty burst into the studio with a guitar, exclaiming “I’ve written a song” (Her long period of writer’s block having apparently just ended). Handing me her Gibson she said “Colin you can play guitar can’t you?” (We’d first met briefly earlier that day) – 15 minutes later, we’d recorded ‘Fifteen minutes’.
