NEW SHIRT NUMBER 1! APES! APES! APES!
Yes APE WIN with this new tour shirt--with ALL the tour dates on the back!
NEW SHIRT NUMBER 2! NU WAVE!
The spectacular NU WAVE shirt is ELECTRIC BLUE and even says They Might Be Giants in a way that is almost impossible to detect!
AND NEW VINYL! TMBG OTHER THING BRASS BAND!
Brass band lovers, vinyl lovers and TMBG rarity lovers have much to rejoice with this special Idlewild vinyl release!
This 33 rpm disc documents four stellar tracks John and John recorded with this most impressive line up of brass players. A rollicking reinterpretation of Particle Man, a majestic rendering of Dirt Bike, Ant (with an inspired musical duel between Mark "Loveman" Pender on trumpet and John Linnell on Kaoss pad) and the brassy, buoyant arrangement of Mr. Me made famous in TMBGs live shows.
Yes-do find it all here http://merchdirect.com/theymightbegiants
