Mesopotamia is an EP by new wave band the B-52's. It was produced by David Byrne of Talking Heads and was originally planned to be the band's third studio album. Due to conflicts with Byrne and record label pressure, recording sessions were aborted prematurely and only six of ten songs to be completed were released as a shorter than originally intended LP. The record was distributed as a 12 EP by Warner Bros. in the US and by Island Records on vinyl and cassette in the UK and other non-US markets. The B-52's - Mesopotamia. booboobay1.

The B-52's are an American rock band that formed in 1976 in Athens, Georgia, United States. A major part of the new wave scene, the band started out as Fred Schneider vocals, Kate Pierson vocals, organ, Cindy Wilson vocals, bongos, Ricky Wilson guitar, and Keith Strickland drums. After Ricky Wilson died in 1985, Strickland replaced him as a guitarist. They're perhaps best known for their 1978 single Rock Lobster and their 1989 pop smash Love Shack.

After setting dancefloors alight and funny bones aquiver in 1979-1980 with their first two albums, The B-52's and Wild Planet, the B-52's seemed to run out of gas soon after, issuing a stopgap remix mini-album, Party Mix, in 1981, and then turning in another stopgap mini in this lackluster set, produced by David Byrne, who must have. seemed like a good choice, although his sense of humor is less zany, if just as weird, as that of the B's.

Does anybody know whether there's a slight variation in mix of the track 3 Mesopotamia from the UK to the US versions of this album. The youtube video sounds like it has doubled up vocals and sounds much more trippy than the CD I have of the American release. Rispondi Visualizza 1 risposta Avvertimi 1 Helpful. Released 1982.
