A benefit compilation for They Might Be Giants’ band and crew in the COVID-19 era
Clearly we have picked the wrong century to try to keep a band together. In an effort to help our people make it through this difficult time, we have put together a small compilation of some great but less exposed songs, including a few rarities that aren’t on streaming sites at all. Over the years we have facilitated a number of fundraising events and we have always marveled at our audience's generosity. Now in this strange moment, it has all come home. On behalf of our co-workers, we hope you all can participate now so we can keep things going for them.
ALL proceeds will be an even 11-way split to the dedicated people John and I have relied on the most--our band and crew.
Here is the progressive song selection on the compilation we are calling Modern:
Stuff is Way
The Neck Rolls Aren't Working
Gudetama's Busy Days
Marty Beller Mask
Electronic Istanbul (Not Constantinople)
Words Are Like
It’s ten bucks for eleven songs.
We understand if this is too tough a time to be asking anything of you--there is a lot going on and our folks are hardly alone in this difficult time. If this is a set of songs you are interested in checking out, or you simply want to help the people who get They Might Be Giants to the stage, we truly appreciate your help. The suggested contribution is $10, but if you want to put in more, we aren’t going to stop you! Stay safe and wash your hands.
Yours in rock,
John F., They Might Be Giants
