Description

Welcome to the surreal and poetic planet of They Might Be Giants, the
Brooklyn-based musical duo of John Flansburgh and John Linnell, who have spent
the past twenty years crafting their singular alt-pop style — cerebral, dark
and humorous. Embracing the Do-It-Yourself ethos of true independent artists,
They Might Be Giants has followed a unconventional path to cult stardom — from
John and John’s first meeting in a Lincoln, Massachusetts grade school through
the East Village performance art scene of the early ’80s to their 2002 Grammy
Award — aided by stunning, low-budget music videos, trailblazing use of the
internet and a truly groundbreaking utilization of the telephone answering
machine.
