Back cover

The Wiggle Diskette (as the record pronounces itself), They Might Be Giants' first official release, is a one-sided 7" flexi-disc (round, not square) released on March 30, 1985, produced by Bill Krauss, engineered by Al Houghton and Alex Noyes, and with drum programming by Chris Butler. The release was limited-edition of 1000 copies. The tracks included were "Everything Right Is Wrong" and "You'll Miss Me", both of which resurfaced in drastically rearranged versions on their debut album and Lincoln, respectively. The cover artwork features a photo of a young girl at a wool machine threading wool, with a small photo of the Johns (looking demented) at the bottom. Above, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS is modestly printed. Some copies were distributed by stapling or taping bagged copies to telephone poles and street signs around Manhattan.[1]
