Talk Talk - Srsly stfu

They were counted among the groups that formed a 'new romantic movement’, in the company of formations such as Visage, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Boy George. The romanticists made their voice heard in the late 1970s in particular and reached their peak around 1981 – the founding year of Talk Talk. 

Talk Talk band name origins - seriously-shut-upOn the first album the London synth pop band brought out, The party's Over, Talk Talk is the opening track. The composition was not new: the song was previously recorded by The Reaction, the former band of Talk Talk's singer / songwriter Mark Hollis.

The original title of Hollis' creation was Talk Talk Talk Talk, but apparently that was considered somewhat too insistent.

Active: 1981-1991, GBR
