Choon Choosday: They Might Be Giants – Fingertips

13 January, 2015

I’m not a huge fan of “quirky” bands per se. The Divine Comedy, for example, drive me absolutely mad – even they do perform the theme tune to Father Ted. But I do like a bit of TMBG. I first heard of them (like most people I imagine) when Birdhouse In Your Soul came out, and I was hooked. They have many fine tunes, but their best moment, IMHO, is Fingertips from the Apollo 18 album.

Fingertips is really 20+ mini-tracks of a few seconds each, and the idea is that when you put the CD on shuffle, the Fingertips appear inbetween the main tracks of the album. That, ladies and gentlemen, is genius and it’s an idea I will steal if I ever bring out an album. Due to the limits of YouTube I am presenting Fingertips here as a single track, so you’re hearing them in one go which doesn’t really capture the spirit. Not all of these will be to everyone’s taste, but don’t worry – if you don’t like a particular Fingertip, a new one will be along shortly.

(multiple) Choooooooonn(s)!
