More importantly, he also played with Fela Kuti on Fela’s London Scene (1971), Why Black Man Dey Suffer (1971), Live! (1972) and Stratavarious (1972):

Mark Hollis was an English musician and singer-songwriter, the co-founder, lead singer and principal songwriter of the band Talk Talk.
I never knew their song “Such a Shame” was inspired by Luke Rhinehart’s The Dice Man (1971).
In fact, I never really knew Talk Talk at all, outside of the hits.
Tonight, I played some of their music and put “The Rainbow” from the 1998 album Spirit of Eden on repeat.
