There's a nice article about the band here- http://www.westport-news.com/ci_11253685

"Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth continuously prove that there's more to the Talking Heads than lead singer David Byrne. Frantz, the drummer, and his wife, Weymouth, the bassist, are a married couple living on the Fairfield-Westport line and they brought just as much to the table -- if not more -- than Byrne."

David certainly has a lot to live up to when he visits next year.I lost count of the times at THAT BREAKFAST
I implored, "Chris,Tina.It's not an all-you-can-eat Breakfast Buffet.We are Civilised in England-we have
Waiter Service..." :shock:

If you want to spot Tom Tom Club in the next three days, your best chances are in Fairfield, CT.
The band plays the Fairfield Theatre Company tonight, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.

Only a handful of tickets (seats) are left for sale - so if you can make it to beautiful Fairfield, go spot Chris and Tina and Mystic and Mr. Ginseng and Bruce and Victoria and Fuzz (and his magnificent Caravan of Thieves who will open for Tom Tom Club) at this cozy theatre:

Just spotted a mini-documentairy (3 minutes or so) on "Wordy Rappinghood". Filmed, recently, at the Clubhouse with Chris and Tina explaining the original of the songs and the words. Item was made for the Dutch TV show Top 2000 A Go Go, a series of programs about the Top 2000 singles of all times.

The program will be available on-line 24 hours after initial broadcast, so that's tomorrow, the 31rd. I'll post the link.

I've seen some rumors of Tom Tom Club appearing on the Coachella festival in April, anyone knows anything about it? Something like a West Coast US tour around that time?
