“Behind the Monkey House”

By Chris Frantz & Tina Weymouth

Produced and performed by Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth; published by Metered Music Inc./ASCAP. Copyright ©2004 Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth
 

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1974, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth moved to New York City, where they cofounded the legendary Talking Heads with David Byrne. In 1981, the couple formed the Tom Tom Club as a side project. The group’s albums include that year’s Tom Tom Club, Close to the Bone (1983), Dark Sneak Love Action (1992), and Live @ the Clubhouse (2002). In addition to their own musical projects, Frantz and Weymouth have produced albums for artists such as Angelfish, Happy Mondays, and Ziggy Marley.

Esopus CD #2: Missed Connections

For our second CD invitational, we asked 11 musician-couples—people who have fused not only creatively but romantically—to choose a “Missed Connections” ad from the internet site Craig’s List and use it as inspiration for a song. The site’s “Missed Connections” features postings either by singles who are seeking to contact someone they’ve had a brief encounter with or by people who are mourning— or sometimes cursing—a lost love.
