Cluster 1 Interview: Chris Frantz of Tom Tom Club & Talking Heads

placeholder image

    At the beginning of the year, Consequence of Sound and Cluster 1’s own Cap Blackard called up Chris Frantz of Tom Tom Club and Talking Heads for a bit of a chat. This time around, they met face to face – and Cap brought a camerawoman (Eleanor Edwards). In the six minute interview above, you can hear what Frantz has to say about the future of Tom Tom Club. He touches upon what we can expect from future recordings (hint: lots of EPs), new Tom Tom Club side-ventures (the darker, electronic-leaning Chris und Tina), and touring with Psychedelic Furs and Devo. There’s also a few comments about his time with Talking Heads, including having Tom Tom Club as an opener and working on music videos with David Byrne. Hear everything he has to say in the clip above.

    This video presentation is only an excerpt from a much longer conversation. You can hear the whole thing in an upcoming episode of the official CoS podcast: Audiography.
