I had never heard of this one before but saw it used today for $3 so I picked it up.

David Byrne and Brian Eno. Basically found sounds and voices set to music.

I'm really enjoying it especially Jezebel Spirit and help me somebody.

It was done in 1979 and sounds like a very dark Talking Heads album.

Man I hate that i missed it before now

Anybody else heard it?

It's a good album and a place where Eno/Byrne experimented with some of the same ideas they were working out at about the same time with "Remain in Light". MLITBOG is less accessible and more experimental than Remain in Light.

It's a good album...very well produced. One of the more unusual CD's I've ever owned, for sure.

"TALKIN' FUNNY
AND LOOKIN' FUNNY
AND TALKIN' ABOUT
NOBODY JUDGE ME
-- YOU MAKE YOURSELF LOOK BAD!!!

HELP ME SOMEBODY

YOU NEED TO TAKE
A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF
AND SEE IF YOU'RE
THE KIND OF PERSON
GOD WANTS YOU TO BE"

-- A big personal favourite. As important as Brian Eno's 70s work was to the development of ambient music, I submit that history will show this album to be equal at least for the development of 21st century sampling. It isn't trippy or moribund -- it's lively and provocative, part of a brief period in 80s advant-garde music when artists were trying to express their desire to embrace the marginalia of American life in total. Funny, absurd, meditative and profound by turns, this was a (very likely inadvertently) visionary album.

I agree, I think that Theivery Corporation, Moby and Big Audio Dynamite had to be at least three that must have heard this album.
Moby's "why must my heart feel so bad" now sounds like a direct steal from this.
Totally jazzed, a great lucky find. How come you guys didnt tell me before
