Talking Heads Chronology

Loading...
"Lester was an enthusiast; he jumped headfirst into the scene and never looked back. This piece stands as a passionate prose poem about our place in regard to Nature, the Universe and Reality. Yes, that's what this is, not just a record review. Way ahead of his time, Lester describes a Matrix-like world, and he begins to peel back the covers, exposing an unfriendly Mother Nature and the paranoid Truth."
