Toe Jam - The BPA feat. David Byrne & Dizzee Rascal

Legbamel Not-Pop

David Byrne continues to pop up in collaborations across genres and styles. Today, I ran across Toe Jam, with The Brighton Port Authority (The BPA) and Dizzee Rascal, and felt that I had to share it with you all. It’s got a nice groove, a few horns, and that unmistakable David Byrne voice. The lyrics, as usual with Mr. Byrne, leave you somewhere between laughter and confusion. There’s also a funky little rap section from Dizzee Rascal. Altogether, it’s a bouncy little piece of fun. You can picture him lying back with his feet up, watching scenes unfold between his toes.

In fact, you can read David Byrne’s own explanation of Toe Jam and watch the video, here. Be warned, black-bar censoring of nudity is the point of the video. If you’re easily shocked, don’t click.
