Tom Tom Club returned to music players around the world on Tuesday, September 4th with the digital release of their new EP, Downtown Rockers. This material, the band's first studio recordings in over 10 years, will get a vinyl release on September 11th. To help you get acquainted with the new tunes, we turned over the live stream to the band's Chris Frantz. A former guest (twice actually) of the EVR studio, Frantz hosted Downtown Rockers, a very special takeover for EVR. The 2-hour special highlighted Frantz's inimitable knowledge of the neighborhood scene from "back in the day", and featured music from the band's new release as well as commentary from friends of the Nacional recording artist, including The Dead Boys' Cheetah Chrome, Blondie's Debbie Harry, Talking Heads and The Modern Lovers' Jerry Harrison and Television's Billy Ficca. Frantz' wife and bandmate Tina Weymouth was also on hand for the special, sharing her insights about downtown NYC as well.
