From This Might Be A Wiki
Hernandez with Chris Maxwell of The Elegant Too

Phil Hernandez, also known as DJ ***** (Dee Jay Five Star), is one half of the Elegant Too, a group which often collaborates with They Might Be Giants.

Phil worked with Mono Puff as a percussionist, and he appeared in the music video for TMBG's "Doctor Worm" playing bongos, though he did not actually drum on the song, as noted in the Direct From Brooklyn DVD commentary. Hernandez also did some drumming and programming work on the Mink Car album, and joined the band for a performance of "Man, It's So Loud In Here" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Shortly after, he provided percussion for "It's Kickin' In". He is listed in the thank yous for McSweeney's issue 6.
