Talking Heads play Psychokiller 1978 Television Appearance

This is a video of a 1978 Talking Heads performance filmed for London's Old Grey Whistle Test. Tina Weymouth's deadlocked focus on David Byrne apparently started way before Stop Making Sense. Reminds me of the fact that James Brown's musicians could face fines if they weren't looking at the Godfather during certain parts of a performance. Also, it's amazing how such an art-centric band can look so preppy and downright scary how much Byrne looks like a doppelganger for American Psycho's Patrick Bateman, a movie and character that one could argue were both based on this song.

Thanks to Aquarium Drunkard for the heads up on this one!
