The parade of Idlewild Recordings new and re-issue vinyl releases continues with
JOIN US ON VINYL They Might Be Giants' legendary barn-storming band is in rare form on Join Us. Busting out of the gates with Can’t Keep Johnny Down, Join Us is not so much a return to form as an amplification of the band's essential predilections. From the impossible blues of Cloisonné to the mania of When WiIl You Die? to the 8-bit squeals of 2082, Join Us is packed with definitive songs sharply presented from a band firing on all cylinders. Originally released in 2011, this re-issue pressing is on 180-gram audiophile, crystal clear vinyl, and is presented in a beautiful gatefold package. Orders are shipping immediately!
JOHN F. HIT BY A REAL CAR, SHOWS POSTPONED
As you probably know from our previous posts, last week John F. was seriously injured riding in a car service that was hit by a drunk driver’s vehicle. Of course, the band’s long-delayed shows once again need to be rescheduled, and we are working on that right now. Watch this space for updates. Right now, we are all expecting Flansurgh’s full recovery by the end of July, so the August shows seem safe. A NOTE FROM JOHN F.
Via @FlansyFlans on Instagram:
“Hey everybody—John F., guitar man of They Might Be Giants here with an update on my scene. After six long days at the hospital, I am now recovering at home. It will be slow but I am already feeling much better (at least that’s what the meds told me to say). This week's shows will all be happening eventually, and I can guarantee they will be worth the wait. Thanks to all for your kind notes, and thanks to the Daily News for bumping me up to lead guitarist. (Dan, it wasn’t me!)”
MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE MERCH STAND
