    I was 25 when I attended this show at East Anglia University in 1982. It was a sparse crowd. I recall standing directly in front of Mark Hollis, mesmerized, as he sang in his passionate and yearning voice. The fretless bass and pounding rhythms were trance inducing. I was hooked right from the start. All they had to offer at this time was their first album. So, they played their popular single Talk Talk twice…to lengthen their show. I didn’t mind as I didn’t want the evening to end. The memory of Hollis standing and singing, totally unphased, as the skinheads standing next to me spat up at him remains indelible, as does all memories of of Talk Talk and Mark Hollis music I have taken with me in the soundtrack of my life. A absolute brilliant introduction in 1982 to a brilliant musical mind and well crafted band that ultimately had so much more to offer.
