They Might Be Giants

Biography

American rockers They Might Be Giants are well-known all around the world as the musicians, who can and who love to experiment with the sound. The group found its unique style pretty quickly, however not everyone knows that during the first stages, which were in early eighties, the band consisted only of two persons: John Flansburgh and John Linnell, who were accompanied by the drum machine. They Might Be Giants became the full-size line-up group by nineties. The line-up actually took lots of changes during the musicians’ career, so nowadays They Might Be Giants includes Dan Miller, Danny Weinkauf, Marty Beller and two founders of the band, of course.

So, the group’s debut self-titled album saw the light in 1986. They Might Be Giants sounds stylish, in a fancy eighties style, with accents on the drums part. The musicians did a great job with the drums, which definitely added some charm to the compositions. Don't Let's Start, Absolutely Bill's Mood and many others became one of the band’s most recognizable songs that can be hardly mixed up with someone else’s. After such a confident and bright debut everyone expected not less fascinating continuation from They Might Be Giants. Well, the rockers satisfied all the expectations: two years later the record Lincoln (1988) was issued. It included the hit Ana Ng, however the fans were about to get another good surprise in the nearest future.

The release of one of the strongest studio attempts of They Might Be Giants - Flood took place in 1990. The famous Birdhouse In Your Soul and a really successful cover-version of Istanbul (Not Constantinople) played their role in They Might Be Giants’ career development. A bit later Flansburgh and Linnell were busy looking for musicians for the band: they wanted to play live, not to work in the studio only. Nevertheless, there were no problems with the search: the line-up of They Might Be Giants was completed in no time, and the band started to perform live. It goes without saying that a lot of people came to their gigs. No wonder, because the rockers managed to kindle listeners’ interest indeed.

They Might Be Giants met the twenty-first century in a confident way, with the help of their eight studio record Mink Car (2001). The mix of power-pop and dance compositions was really enjoyed by music lovers. By the way, they did not have to wait for the following album for a long time, as soon as the rockers presented No! in 2002. It is always good to notice that in spite of an extended career, the artists do not lose interest to their occupation. They still enjoy what they do, and their sincere and energetic albums are the best proof of that. Thus, in 2011, They Might Be Giants’ fifteenth studio work titled Join Us saw the light. There is absolutely no doubt that it will be interesting for both the They Might Be Giants’s old fans and for those who are just going to get acquainted with the band’s creativity.
