Addendum: Tom Tom Club
November 28, 2009
Props to my genius cohort on the Tom Tom Club track. Coincidentally, I was recently reading a little about Talking Heads and discovered Tom Tom Club was an offshoot of the band. Am I the only one who didn’t know this? That shit blew my mind. I guess that’s why it made sense that they played the song during “Stop Making Sense.” (That awful pun was unintentional.) I couldn’t find a video of the song, but enjoy “Girlfriend is Better” below for the hell of it.
Speaking of Talking Heads, there’s a cool exhibit at MoMA right now with archival audio/video/history about seminal punk and new/no wave bands. It’s a continuation of the “Looking at Music” series. Cool stuff from Blondie, Sonic Youth and other usual suspects. Go check it out. Beitch.
