After American rock band Talking Heads went on hiatus due to lead vocalist David Byrnes solo efforts, husband and wife team and fellow band members Chris Franz(drums) and Tina Weymouth(bass) co-founded Tom Tom Club in 1980, the moniker taking its name from a dancehall in the Bahamas. Several musicians, producers, and engineers from the Compass Point All-Stars also lent their musical skills and expertise to the band along with Tina Weymouth’s sisters.
Fusing new wave, dance-rock, and synthpop, Tom Tom Club experienced early success with their self-titled debut album containing hit singles“Wordy Rappinghood” and“Genius of Love” one of the most sampled songs in the ’80s. A cover of The Drifters’“Under the Boardwalk” also made it on the album and became a UK top 40 hits. Pop artist, James Rizzi created the colorful and cartoon-like cover for their first album—definitely a fresh and hip design that echoed the band’s classic dance grooves.
