ROCK Sex: "Slippery People" -Talking Heads > The Staple Singers

ROCK Sex ties to get a grip on the slip.

Today, the relay hand-off of "Slippery People".


Possessed by the fever somewhere between Fela and New Orleans, here's Talking heads in fluid delirium. They're backed by Nona Hendryx on vocals and Bernie Worrell on keyboards.

And here's the ever wonderful STAPLE SINGERS putting their own liquid moves on it.

Not long after, POPS STAPLES played the man with the mojo in David Byrne's film, TRUE STORIES.
