Två album
Balladernas konst är en gammal konst
men om orden svider
om orden talar om det som svider
blir det lätt en ballad om nyare tider"

Nynningens tolkning av Majakovski var bland det bästa
som kom ur 70-talets progg.Tidlöst.

Om man sedan läser Torbjörn Säfves Jag brinner.En roman
om Majakovskis liv med revolutionen får man en bra bild av
den store ryske poeten.

Den andra skivan var Brian Eno och David Byrnes gemen-
samma platta My life in the bush of ghosts.
Två säregena herrar ganska långt från tiden med Roxy Music
eller Talking heads.

Plattan gjordes 1981och en nyutgåva kom 2006. 

The track "Qu'ran" was excluded from this release without comment. However, in an interview for Pitchfork Media about the 2006 reissue, Byrne said:

Way back when the record first came out, in 1981, it might have been '82, we got a request from an Islamic organization in London, and they said, 'We consider this blasphemy that you put grooves to the chanting of the Holy Book.' And we thought, 'Okay, in deference to somebody's religion, we'll take it off.' You could probably argue for and against monkeying with something like that. But I think we were certainly feeling very cautious about this whole thing. We made a big effort to try and clear all the voices, and make sure everybody was okay with everything. Because we thought, 'We're going to get accused of all kinds of things, and so we want to cover our asses as best we can.' So I think in that sense we reacted maybe with more caution than we had to. But that's the way it was.
