My TMBG History[edit]

After I heard them at my friends house, i got my friend to lend me the CD. I liked all of the tracks, and decided to purchase one of their CDs. After a look on the internet, I decided Dial-A-Song: 20 Years Of They Might Be Giants would be a good one to buy. I arrived a few days later, and I showed it to the friend who introduced them to me, (who actually doesn't really listen to Them anymore). I bought John Henry and Mink Car on the internet, and would have bought The Spine if it was in stock. I found Miscellaneous T in a cheap record store, and downloaded (legally) most of their other albums. I then went on to buy an accordion, which I am trying to learn how to play. Then I got Flood on vinyl at a car boot sale for 20p, which was a bargain, then a week later bought Severe Tire Damage (along with a copy of Pink Floyd's "The Wall"), and got They Might Be Giants for christmas. I wish I known about TMBG before 2006, so I could have obtained more albums by now. Ah well.

Not only are TMBG my favourite band, but They also introduced me to a wide range of music. Before I found about Them, all I listened to was Monty Python and Weird Al, basically things that made me laugh. But TMBG made me laugh, and they were serious musicians, and played brilliant music. I asked my friends about more bands, and borrowed some of my Dad's CDs (he has hundreds) and pretty soon I was listening to a whole load of bands, who all of I still listen to. But TMBG are, and will be for a long time, my favourite band. I hope to see them live one day.
