Artist: They Might Be Giants

Date Released: Slated for 1989, never released

Label: Would have been on Bar/None

Produced By: They Might Be Giants / Bill Krauss


  1. Purple Toupee
  2. Hey, Mr. DJ, I Thought You Said We Had A Deal
  3. Lady Is A Tramp
  4. Birds Fly


This wasn't ever actually released (there was a promo 8-Track version, athough Bar/None bet on no one actually having an 8-track player and the 8-track didn't actually have They Might Be Giants stuff on it—if I recall, it was a polka album, but I could be mistaken). The tracks were finally released 2 years later on Miscellaneous T. Of the three Almost-B-sides, Hey, Mr. DJ is the strongest by far (even eclipsing the intended A-side). "Lady Is A Tramp" is an inspired instrumental cover of the pop standard, and "Birds Fly is an all-right jazzy/cabaret style number. It's pretty good, and it'd be a shame if these songs weren't released, but it's no great shakes that the actual, physical EP never made it out. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
