Particle Man (Live At XM Studio)
From This Might Be A Wiki
|song name||Particle Man|
|artist||They Might Be Giants|
|releases||tmbg.com Free Tunes, Podcast 1A, Dial-A-Song Direct|
|sung by||John Linnell, John Flansburgh|
- This performance of "Particle Man" sounds like a tribute to The Beatles' psychedelic era, complete with faux accents. The keyboard sound used is similar to the Mellotron used on the Anthology 2 version of Take 1 of "Strawberry Fields Forever".
- John Flansburgh on the recording in the May 6, 2005 newsletter:
This highly alt. version was cooked up pretty much on the spot for a kids' show we recorded a few weeks back. (Yes, it is moi, Dr. F, subbin' for DW on the bass, so all bass-accuracy complaints can be made at 1-800-SOIMNOTTHATGOODONTHEBASSLIGHTENUP.) The track was recorded upstairs from the XM Studio at a pretty vibey place called Nola Recording. Word has it Nola is the oldest working recording studio in NYC. Previous recordings by Judy Garland, Charlie Parker, Elvis Costello and [...] Barbra Streisand.
