Talk Talk

Talk Talk were an English synth pop group of the 1980s who had a number of hits throughout that decade.

The group's members were:

  • Mark Hollis - vocals/songwriter
  • Paul Webb - bass
  • Simon Bremner - keyboards
  • Lee Harris - Drums

Talk Talk were formed in 1981, and their heyday was during the early and mid 1980s. Talk Talk produced pop music with a more serious tone than many of their contemporary synth pop bands, but never achieved a hugely high profile. Their biggest hits include the singles:

  • "Today"
  • "Talk Talk"
  • "Its My Life"
  • "Life is What You Make It"

Talk Talk's commercial success faded towards the end of the 1980s as the band experimented with a less commercial sound (which was later categorized as post-rock) and the band split up in 1991 or 1992.
