  • From the back of the Why Does The Sun Shine? EP: "The Meat Puppets have always been a favorite with the younger set, and as their legend continued it was just a matter of time before They Might Be Giants fell under their magical, musical spell. Whirlpool, from their 1992 release Forbidden Places is a heart-stopping example of the Meat Puppets' lyrical wealth. The bass and saxophone arrangement presented here compliments the Meat Puppets' elfin vision."
