Because you know I am just a giant head

They Might Be Giants have been a geek music fixation of mine since 1990, which feels like an awful long time ago now. I was young then. Way back when they had the wonder of dial-a-song (718 387 6962 narrrrrr…) to use as an instant outlet for songs.

Now they have a podcast, and they’re doing it with alarming regularity. Most of it’s a random mix of older classic tracks, but they keep on chucking in interesting live versions and good new stuff. Every so often they even post something so obscure I’ve never heard it before.

If you have the slightest interest in TMBG I’d thoroughly reccomend going and subbing up as it’s like a dial-a-song that prods you. Check TMBW (This Might Be a Wiki) for details of what you’ve missed, including the ever growing list of podcast exclusives.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Nicely standard sureal experience for me tonight as I browsed the aisles of my “local” supermarket whilst listenning to Russ Conway tinkling the keys in fine style.

Is it a bad sign that I’m now considering making a supermarket playlist?
After all, there’s a Clash song that’s just perfect…
