Phil Hernandez, also known as DJ ***** (Dee Jay Five Star), is one half of the Elegant Too, a group which often collaborates with TMBG. Phil worked with Mono Puff as a percussionist, and he appeared in the music video for TMBG's "Doctor Worm", as noted in the Direct From Brooklyn commentary. (He's the one playing the bongos in the video, though he doesn't on the actual song.) Hernandez also did some drumming and programming work on the Mink Car album, and provided percussion for "It's Kickin' In". Phil joined the band for a performance of "Man, It's So Loud In Here" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He is listed in the thank yous for McSweeney's issue 6.
