Zombie Take-Out Episode 279: More Movies About Buildings and Food

True Stories Scotto and Uncle John kick off their rock star vanity project trilogy with a film written, directed and co-starring David Byrne, formerly of the classic new wave band Talking Heads, that combines the slice of life comedy of Christopher Guest with the weirdness of David Lynch and Byrne's own slightly off-kilter sensibilities. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1986, it's True Stories. Is it really a vanity project? Why didn't they use a 555 number? How accurate is the history at the beginning of the movie? Why hasn't the band Radiohead ever covered the song Radio Head?
