Tom Tom Club ‎– Sunshine And Ecstasy (US 12″)

Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz (from Talking Heads and with keyboardist/percussionist  Bruce Martin and Mark Roule) Drummer go full on House on this ’92 US only release. Assisted by Robert Sanchez on most of the mixes, it is quite simple but powerfully arranged. The XTC mixes are deep piano house. The Tom Tom Dub has some guitars thrown in but they’re all pretty similar.

The “Sunshine And Sensi mix by is more Tom Tom Club with editing by Tuta Aquino and some rapping and jazz piano.

A bonus is a track from the LP “Dark Sneak Love Action.” “As The Disco Ball Turns”,  very Talking Heads as you’d expect and very 80’s.

  1. I’ve been scooping up Tom Tom Club singles with the eye towards making a boxed set of god of the TTC rarities. I’ve not spun my copy yet since I’ve still got a long way to go on the collecting front with at least 8-10 more singles to go. I really liked the “Dark Sneak Love Action” album. A big bounce back after the flat “Boom Boom Chi Boom Boom.”

      1. What makes the band for me is the interplay between Tina and her sisters. When they aren’t there [as on “Boom Boom Chi Boom Boom”] the vibe suffered for me. I saw them twice and it’s really like a family live!

    1. Think the only other T.T.C. 12’’ I have would be (Some On Here Of Course..)
      Suboceana
      Call Of The Wild
      Don’t Say No
      May Have – Genius Of Love (Very Played Out!!)
      The Man With The 4-Way Hips
      Not sure about – “You Sexy Thing” is this a Hot Chocolate Cover and are the mixes good?
      Don’t Have – “Under The Boardwalk” (I Think, not sure…)
      Who Feelin It
      — Any suggestions or goodies feel free to notify, so I can look out for them (Thanks in advance!!)!! —
