Fan Recaps and Comments:

While on the road to the 9:30 Club, John Flansburgh was interviewed by Throttle Magazine over the phone. The interview has been transcribed at /Interviews.

"Small Talk with They Might Be Giants" by Derek Thomas
Throttle Magazine, Aug. 1, 1990:

Dial-A-Song works like this: dial 1-(718)-387-6962 and listen carefully. Sing along, if you like. Tape it, if you have the technology. This isn’t just any Dial-A-Song service. This line goes directly into the Brooklyn home of They Might Be Giants. Neither John Flansburgh, the guitar half of They Might Be Giants, nor John Linnell, the accordion half, make money from their Dial-A-Song service. It’s simply part of their crusade as Brooklyn’s ambassadors of love. They Might Be Giants have been making quirky music with absurd, non sequitur lyrics since 1983.

Their first album, sporting such gems as "Rabid Child" and "Nothing’s Gonna Change My Clothes," received considerable college radio airplay in 1987. Their second album Lincoln, leading off with the enigmatic "Ana Ng," landed them a spot on David Letterman. The boys signed with Elektra and released Flood this year, resulting in the unlikely hits "Birdhouse in Your Soul" and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)."

Throttle spoke with John Flansburgh on his cellular phone as the band headed south on 1-95 to their show at the 9:30 Club last month.
