Tom Tom Club

January 11, 2011

 

Because we love them so…  Tom Tom Club was formed by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth in 1981. Graduates from the Rhode Island School of Design, they moved to New York City where they founded the Talking Heads as a trio with David Byrne in 1975. In early 1981, the Talking Heads took a hiatus after five years of touring internationally and four studio albums. Chris and Tina began the Tom Tom Club and signed with Chris Blackwell and Island Records. Tom Tom Club will release ‘Genius Of Live’ through Because Music on February  7th in the UK. The two-disc package will feature select tracks from their ‘Live at The Clubhouse’ album and new remixes of their timeless single, ‘Genius Of Love’.

    Great stuff! I’m producing a music show for work and I’m totally going to try to name drop your blog! I’m going to coordinate how I can use you guys to collaborate with us for local events because we are planning on promoting indie music!

    This is classic New Wave, Funk, Dance from 1981 although Genius Of Love exploded on the charts in 1982 so I was just 11. I still remember hearing this on the radio and boy it was always fun to hear this. So glad the remixes are avail but I’m not quite pleased with them as much as I love the original. Hopefully there will be more remixes in addition to these two.
