INTERVIEW WITH JJOHN LINNELL (THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS)
Following their incredibly successful Australian Tour in 2013 with multiple Sold Out shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, the Two Johns aka THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS return in November 2015.
We were lucky enough to have a quick chat with one of the 2 Johns (Linnell) about what they have been up to and what we can expect this time around!!!
Their thoroughly engaging and entertaining shows are something that everyone has to experience and existing fans shouldn’t miss.
“If you ever get the chance to see They Might Be Giants make sure you do. See them twice if you can, you will not regret it!” — It’s My Kind of Scene
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS are John Linnell on keyboards and accordion and John Flansburgh on guitar, and their barn-storming live band includes Danny Weinkauf on bass, Marty Beller on drums and Dan “Solder” Miller on lead guitar. Linnell and Flansburgh became friends as kids in school in Massachusetts but only formed the band after moving to Brooklyn, New York. The duo have spent half their life together in TMBG and along the way have perfected their original sound through memorable melody and a sly bit of humor that never crosses into parody.
Along with their impossibly catchy songs, They Might Be Giants’ high concept, low budget music videos helped the band stand apart, and rocketed the duo to the top of the burgeoning US alternative rock scene, and then on to international mainstream success.
“The crowd erupted at the first few bars of their most recognisable song ‘Dr Worm’ and they were easily the band that interacted with their audience the best and most effectively.” — Surg FM
Drawing on their massive recorded catalog, their live show is spontaneous, high energy, high volume, and ever evolving. They have been praised as “The best band you’ve never seen.” See their most memorable show while you can.
“They Might Be Giants are a wonderfully whimsical band, the kind that makes you happy just to be there in their moment” — The Ripe
