Talk Talk were an English rock band formed in 1981. The group achieved early chart success with the synth-pop singles “Talk Talk” (1982), “It’s My Life” and “Such a Shame” (both 1984) before moving towards more experimental music in the mid-1980s, pioneering what became known as post-rock.

Friction with the band’s label, EMI, resulted in legal action and countersuing. Webb departed, and the band switched to Polydor for their final album, 1991’s Laughing Stock, but split soon afterwards. Singer Mark Hollis released one solo album in 1998 before retiring from the music industry. The band’s founding bass player and drummer, Paul Webb and Lee Harris, played in several bands together; long-term collaborator Tim Friese-Greene continued in the business as a musician and producer. The band saw a mild resurgence in popularity after the band No Doubt covered their highest charting US single, “It’s My Life” in 2003.
