Darned cockwombles.
one of his lesser-recognised influences, but definitely so. the genius of the man never ceases to amaze me - well, OK, it ceased to amaze me around the time of Little Wonder, but that's another tale.

It goes all the way back to Doo-wop and the start of Rock and Roll. Even weird affected vocals in Jazz before that.

talking heads was definetly what i had in mind...
obviously people have put on stupid voices before the 80s... i am aware of that... just seemed to become the norm in the 80s... i would include autotune as an extension of that... dunno about everything else you lot have said....
