From This Might Be A Wiki

The first time I ever herad TMBG was on Tiny Toons but I was much to young to appreciate them. Later in high school I was completely tired of factory produced songs on the radio. After seeing TMBG on Pen and Teller's Sin City Spectacular playing Doctor Worm and They Got Lost I felt refreshed and went and bought their Severe Tire Damage album immediately. I loved that album and wanted to hear studio recordings of all the songs so I ended up buying all the other albums and have loved Giants' music ever since.

  • Museum Of Idiots--the brass that follows the lyric lines is so extraordinarily striking it brings a quite emotional appeal with equally great lyrics.

All-Time Favorite Song

  • Doctor Worm--classic tmbg tune with their great living band. i don't think there are any electronic noises at all. stunningly well produced.

Favorite TMBG Album

  • Mink Car--good music all throughout and who doesn't love a Mike Doughty cameo?
