NOISE | Tina Weymouth


Talking Heads bass player Tina Weymouth in 1978

"Ex-Velvet Underground member John Cale says Tina was queen because she had that 'Jean Seberg thing going', that short-haired look of the actress who played Joan of Arc for Otto Preminger. The New Wave tomboy who hawked The Herald Tribune in Godard's Breathless. Both Jean Seberg and Tina Weymouth seemed adorably feminine because to paraphrase Seberg's lover Carlos Fuentes, 'to get those two you had to negotiate the twist and turns of androgyny and homoeroticism.'" —David Bowman (an excerpt from This Must Be the Place: the Adventures of Talking Heads in the Twentieth Century)
