Vivabeat was a Los Angeles based New Wave band that formed in 1978 and continued making music into the mid-80's. The House Is Burning: The Best of Vivabeat is a new colored vinyl compilation LP to celebrate the band's legacy. This newly remastered collection includes three tracks from their 1980 album Party In The War Zone, several archive recordings from a previous compilation making their first vinyl appearance, and two additional previously unreleased songs that are exclusive to this LP. The title track The House Is Burning (But There's No One Home) was featured in the 1984 Brian DePalma film Body Double and includes former Japan member Rob Dean on guitar. Blue Guitars and What We Talk About (When We Talk About Love) are recently unearthed versions featuring original vocalist Terrance Robay (previously released versions featured a female vocalist) and were rescued from long-dormant multitrack tapes, remixed in 2023 by Earle Mankey.
