Talk Talk were a band who between 1982 and 1991 released a series of five increasingly esoteric and unclassifiable albums. From a humble and inauspicious synth-drenched debut they evolved into a band with a unique sound that, by the time of Spirit of Eden, defied genre pigeonholes.
The group formed around a nucleus of drummer Lee Harris, bassist Paul Webb (born 1962), and singer and chief songwriter Mark Hollis (born 1955). Previously Mark had been in the band The Reaction, who released one single in 1978 - 'I Can't Resist'. Talk Talk gathered when Mark Hollis was offered some studio time to demo his song writing in 1981. His brother Ed Hollis (who co-wrote the track 'Talk Talk') found Lee and Paul, and along with keyboard player Simon Brenner, the band's demo material and a couple of gigs secured them a session on Radio One, and a subsequent deal with EMI.
