Tom Tom Club

"Yo, David. Tina's got a new bass and she's getting pretty good at it. You wanna start a band?" So Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and David Byrne formed a band called The Talking Heads. They opened for The Ramones at CGBG's for their first gig and then not much happened after that. Not much, that is, until Chris called the Awkward Pause radio program to discuss the latest release from Tom Tom Club.  Oh yeah, Chris Frantz is also the founder of Tom Tom Club (about whom, more available here).
