Hey everyone! Happy summer to all.

We are super-psyched to announce we will be sharing a bill with ART GARFUNKEL next Sunday in Philly, so if you want to see WORLDS COLLIDE, we want to be the first to call your attention to this special event! (We'll be the guys playing too loud to the confused boomers...) We are also returning for a FREE SHOW in Buffalo on the very stage where nature attacked us and the crowd last year - a vicious and insane rainfall knocked out the PA and the tent protecting it just ten minutes before we went on, and the whole show had to be scuttled. Let's see if it happens again....

We are also happy to announce TMBG's Clock Radio is enhanced, improved and still totally free. Just go to the upper right hand corner of, download the updated interface, and enjoy hours upon hours of unique content on three bands of streaming audio. We have just added over 80 new songs from various projects, and the listening experience is quite varied now. (What might you hear? You might be surprised by the song selection- a casual listening session revealed "Sensurround," an equally rare and excellent song from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers soundtrack, the original 1985 demo of the song "They Might Be Giants," "Night Security" (sung by Rockapella bass Barry Carl off the Mono Puff album "It's Fun To Steal"), "Truth In Your Words" from the now mythically expensive McSweeney's Issue #6, and on the totally obscure tip, I heard "Clown Town," the outtake from "No!" along with the jumpin' horn instrumental "Too Cool Girls" (totally unreleased as of this moment) while on the FM dial, a ripping live version of "Til My Head Falls Off" segues into the maximum insecurity of "Beneath the Planet of the Apes." Meanwhile, the last few days of the Mini-Brass Band at Coney Island remain on EBS, but that will soon be replaced by some exciting new stuff (we are still getting that together) so click in that direction. You won't be disappointed.

We got some other good news, but it ain't official yet so we'll have to wait... Til then! -Mr. Flans
