Tom Tom Club

The Tom Tom Club is a spinoff of the Talking Heads, led by drummer Chris Franz and bassist Tina Weymouth. They have put out five records, which are all cool (well maybe Boom Boom isn't that great). The first one featured their hit song Genius of Love. The next three were pretty much unnoticed and are now out of print. I think maybe they're too hip for the mainstream and not dark enough to be considered cool by the hipsters. Newest ultracool record released September 12, 2000. Their music is always positive, funky, intelligent and made for dancing.
