Mono Puff

John Flansburgh from They Might Be Giants put out a couple of cool albums with this side project.

Unsupervised

(1996)
  1. Guitar Was The Case
  2. Unsupervised, I Hit My Head
  3. Don't Break the Heart
  4. Distant Antenna
  5. The Devil Went Down to Newport (Totally Rocking)
  6. What Bothers the Spaceman
  7. Hello Hello
  8. Dr. Kildare
  9. So Long, Mockingbird
  10. Careless Santa
  11. Don't I Have the Right
  12. To Serve Mankind
  13. Nixon's the One

Very cool. I love all these songs.

"The Devil Went Down to Newport" is a surfin' equivalent of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". It's totally rockin'.

Nancy Lynn Howell sings "Don't I Have the Right".

It's Fun to Steal

(1998)

  1. Creepy

I'm not nuts about "Hillbilly Drummer Girl", but the rest is good.

Hidden song before track 1, just like TMBG's Factory Showroom.
