AN iconic eighties pop band reunited to pose together for the first time in twenty years, after their bitter split.

The Talking Heads were pictured standing side by side on a red carpet during a Q&A at Toronto International Film Festival.

The famed band consists of frontman David Byrne, bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz and guitarist Jerry Harrison.

They joined together again for the 40th anniversary of their concert film, Stop Making Sense which debuted in 1984.

They joined Spike Lee for a Q&A after the screening of the 4k restoration of the movie.

Chris said: “It’s so good to be here with my bandmates tonight. It’s been a long time.”

According to the LA Times, all four members sat in separate rows to watch the film screening.

Jerry Harrison recently said that working on the re-release of the film was something of a “healing experience” for the iconic group.

He said: “We get along OK. It’s all very cordial and whatever.

“It’s not like we’re all best friends. But everybody’s very happy to see this film coming back out.

“We’re all united in the fact that we really love what we did here. So that kind of helps us talk to one another and get along.”

It was in December 1991 that the band announced that they were splitting up.

But Chris said at the time: “As far as we’re concerned, the band never really broke up. David just decided to leave.”

He learnt that his bandmate was leaving from a Los Angeles Times article.

The others then continued for a little while without David Byrne and renamed themselves Shrunken Heads.

David has since spoken about his regret about the way things were handled back then, and told People: “As a younger person, I was not as pleasant to be around. When I was working on some Talking Heads shows, I was more of a little tyrant.

“And then I learned to relax and I also learned that, collaborating with people, both sides get more if there’s a good relationship instead of me telling everybody what to do.

 “I think [the end] wasn’t handled well. It was kind of ugly.

“I have regrets on how that was handled. I don’t think I did it in the best way, but I think it was kind of inevitable that would happen anyway.”
