Recorded in New York City and London this album includes the first collaborations with Langer/Winstanley since the Flood session (Bangs, Cyclops Rock, My Man).

Severe Tire Damage TMBG Live

Full Album Factory Showroom is the first of many of what would become TMBG’s longterm collaboration with engineer/producer Pat Dillett. Expansive rhythms and kaleidoscopic arrangements actively blend electronic, electric, and acoustic approaches. Lead guitarist Eric Schermerhorn’s lyrical lead guitar work shines on many tracks and the band’s pop craftsmanship reaches new heights on tracks like “How Can I Sing Like A Girl?,” “Metal Detector,” and “Pet Name.” Audience favorite “James K. Polk” finally gets the full band treatment here, and the track “I Can Hear You” holds the singular distinction of being recorded directly to a wax cylinder recorder at the Edison Laboratory.

John Henry TMBG take on a full band!
Full Album As They Might Be Giants expanded from live performance with a tape recorder to a full backing band, taking their new, fuller sound into the studio was a natural move, and John Henry, their first full length album with live musicians, documents this moment in TMBG’s evolution. Working with producer Paul Fox (XTC, 10,000 Maniacs) the band woodsheded in upstate New York at the legendary Bearsville Studios. While John Henry’s organic sound and fuller production initially took many by surprise, show-stopping staples like “Meet James Ensor,” “No One Knows My Plan,” “Spy,” and “The End Of The Tour” have stood the test of time.

Full Album The first album created with John F. and John L. at the production helm, it is not surprising that this album is both sonically adventurous and musically surprising. Along side the tight pop songwriting that is the band’s trademark (Narrow Your Eyes, I Palindrome I) the texture of impossibly dense, sample-based concoctions enter the picture (Spider, The Guitar, Hall of Heads). The album reaches a crescendo with the unknowable genre-shifting montage of “Fingertips,”an ever-shifting recording that was initially considered unplayable.

Using the brand new Alesis HR16 drum machine along with some primitive sampling devices, the two-man attack of the band flourished.

Full Length Compilation Rhino released the single-disc compilation A User’s Guide To They Might Be Giants – kind of a simple reduction of Dial-A-Song.
