- Starting time [0:00] - Where Your Eyes Don't Go (BBC)
- [1:44] - Narrator patter:
Hey everybody, this is John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants. Thank you for podcasting in. You're listening to They Might Be Giants' audio podcast. Um, we want to thank everybody who came out who came out to the shows this last month while we were on the road. We do have some upcoming shows we want to tell people about. We're playing in Burlington, Vermont. We're doing a couple shows in Albany, and we've got a Town Hall show coming up in New York City, two children's shows at Town Hall, both daytime deals. So you might want to check that out or tell your friends with kids about those upcoming shows. You just heard "Where Your Eyes Don't Go;" that was recorded at the BBC. We got a studio day there, um, for some kind of broadcast on BBC for some obscure radio station, and uh, that was one of the songs we recorded. And I just discovered the tape, sifting through a bunch of cassettes, so I thought you would all be interested in checking that out. Right now we've got a demo of "Extra Savoir-Faire." This was made with Pat Dillett at Excello Studios in Brooklyn... um, a few months before we actually recorded the album proper. And it sounded pretty good to me, so I thought I'd put it on the podcast. So here it is: "Extra Savoir-Faire."
- [2:57] - Extra Savoir-Faire (Demo)
- [5:48] - Why Does The Sun Shine? (Dial-A-Song)
- [8:40] - Particle Man (BBC)
- [10:28] - Narrator patter:
You just heard "Particle Man," recorded for a studio session on the BBC radio back in the mid-nineties. Not really sure when that was made. The ticking sound in that song is actually a metronome that we put through an echo effect. Before that, you heard "Why Does the Sun Shine?"—the Dial-A-Song version of the song—very crude version of the song, I should say. Probably recorded right as we were learning it, maybe even a little bit before we learned it. And then before that was the "Extra Savoir-Faire" demo, recorded by Pat Dillett at the Excello Studios. We want to thank you for listening to They Might Be Giants Podcast, and we leave you now with a recording from the Hello CD of the Month Club. This is Laura Cantrell with Robin Goldwasser performing "Lee Harvey Was a Friend of Mine."
