Do you know about Xeno and Oaklander? They’re a cool electronic group with a new LP coming soon. Here they are collaborating with Martin Rev of Suicide. I look forward to hearing the results.
Some years ago, Anne Savoy asked Tom Tom Club to be part of a tribute to Zydeco album called Creole Bred. We chose to record “Only The Strong Survive” by an artist called Keith Frank. Down here in Lafayette, Louisiana we finally got to meet Keith face to face. Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band are a well oiled Zydeco dancing machine and highly recommended.
We are in Lafayette, Louisiana for the Festival International. So much good music and so many good times to be had! Last night Tina chose to wear her white Levi’s Tom Tom Club tour jacket.
It’s a look that I love.
I may not be a very religious person but I do possess a certain degree of spirituality. When I look around at my surroundings this morning, I like to think about the good things and the good people I know and guess what? I get happy.
Tina and I were so pleased to be a part of this great record. Though the album came out some time ago, I just discovered this video of the making of Creole Bred. The producer Ann Savoy asked us to do a song for this album and we recorded our track, “Only The Strong Survive” at our own studio in Connecticut. All the cuts on the album are great. You can find it on Amazon.com or on iTunes.
