This song makes me cry... definitely my favourite band but not everyone's cup of tea. Definitely worth a listen in my opinion though because if you do like the sound, they are a very fun and unique band.

I absolutely LOVE They Might Be Giants. I went to their concert about 10 years ago and they were incredible - I got SO drunk on Nigerian Guinness that night.

They are one of Terry's favourite groups as well. :D

I discovered them thanks to a reference in Soul Music. One of the bands in Soul Music is called We're Certainly Dwarfs :D

Seconded! :)

Edit: Love the Land of Confusion cover! And by coincidence, I had it in my head yesterday all day long, don't know why because it wasn't on the radio or anything...

Either my speakers are suboptimal or the quality of the video... anyway, that which I could make out sounded very good indeed.

That's my aim - to spread the Katzenjammer word :lol:

Funnily enough, I discovered them through a VW forum - someone had seen them live at a festival and said they were amazing. I haven't got to one of their gigs yet - a bit difficult getting out in the evenings at the moment with D's medical routine - but one day....... :think:

I do have their albums though. 'A kiss before you go' is brilliant. and the live in Hamburg CD and DVD is also great.

They are amazing musicians - play about 26 intruments between them and often swap instruments between songs at gigs.

Turned out to be the headphones which I expected to be better. Proper headphones on now.
Much better now. Very nice song. Thanks for sharing.
