Tom Tom Club Still Genius After All These Years

05:01 PM Wednesday 6/23/10 |   |

With a new album, the band that began as a side project announces its first tour in 10 years, promising nothing but honest-to-god live music.

That’s live as in everything you hear will be played right before your very eyes.

Or, as drummer / co-founder Chris Frantz said: “The band consists of seven players, is smoking hot and completely live. We don’t use any sequencers or backing tapes at all.”

Formed by drummer Frantz with his wife, bassist Tina Weymouth, in 1981 as a side project to the couple’s other band, The Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club began life as a successful dance band whose recordings have since been sampled by an almost endless list of artists ranging from Tupac Shakur to Mariah Carey to Grandmaster Flash.

The tour begins with two nights in Fairfield, Conn., at Stage One, plays Washington, D.C., at the Rock And Roll Hotel Sept. 23, stops at Cleveland’s Grog Shop Sept. 24 and hits Cincinnati’s Midpoint Music Festival Sept. 25. Other destinations include Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Toledo, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Set for a Sept. 28 release, Tom Tom Club’s new album, Genius Of Live, will contain select tracks from the band’s 2003 release, Live At The Club House, plus a Latin alternative remix tribute to their hit “Genius Of Love.” For more information about the tour and album, click here for the Tom Tom Club’s website.

     They were nothing after Adrian Belew left. Their hit 'Genius of Love' they tried to beat him out of songwriting credits when he wrote alot of the riffs and he had to threaten to sue them after it became a hit and found they tried to not credit him.
