Happy 35th: Tom Tom Club, TOM TOM CLUB

35 years ago this month, Tom Tom Club – the side project begun by Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth while Talking Heads were on a temporary hiatus – released their self-titled debut album.

After Talking Heads completed their touring obligations for their 1980 album Remain in Light, the members of the foursome went their separate ways…except for Franz and Weymouth, that is, who were a couple and therefore were stuck with each other. Thankfully, this was in no way a hardship for Franz and Weymouth, who promptly began their own musical collective, one which featured folks like Adrian Belew, Tyrone Downie, Sticky Thompson, and Tina’s sisters: Lani, Laura, and Loric Weymouth.

Remembering John Peel

12 years ago today, the world lost one of the greatest DJs of all time: John Peel.

For Americans, Peel may be best known as the man whose radio program gave birth to an ongoing series of in-studio performances by some of the most notable names in alternative music: the Peel Sessions. But Peel was much more than just a typical DJ. His opinions were held in such high regard that he could effectively make or break an artist with his remarks. Thankfully, it can be safely said that he made far more artists than he broke, with his shows regularly offering wide and varied playlists which included pop, rock, blues, jazz, prog, psychedelia, and any other genre that might happen to strike his fancy on a given day.

Buckcherry – 15 –10th anniversary vinyl edition, Only available in the U.S., $19.98

Released in 2005 in Japan and 2006 in the US, 15 was somewhat of a new start for Buckcherry – the band had tweaked their lineup since they’d released their previous album, Time Bomb, in 2001 – and what a successful new start it was: the album went platinum, earned Mainstream Rock success with the single “Next 2 You,” and “Sorry” actually provided the band with their first and, to date, only top-10 hit.

Grateful Dead, SKULL & ROSES

45 years ago today, The Grateful Dead released their second live double album, and although it’s technically a self-titled affair, it’s come to be known more familiarly by a name derived from its cover art; SKULL AND ROSES. In fact, it’s henceforth going to be referred to within this piece by that more familiar title, mostly so that every other pair of words that we type isn’t “Grateful Dead.”
