Everybody dies frustrated and sad and that is beautiful.
Welcome to the surreal and poetic planet of They Might Be Giants, the Brooklyn-based musical duo of John Flansburgh and John Linnell, who have spent the past twenty years crafting their singular alt-pop style - cerebral, dark and humorous. Embracing the Do-It-Yourself ethos of true independent artists, They Might Be Giants has followed a unconventional path to cult stardom - from John and John's first meeting in a Lincoln, Massachusetts grade school through the East Village performance art scene of the early '80s to their 2002 Grammy Award - aided by stunning, low-budget music videos, trailblazing use of the internet and a truly groundbreaking utilization of the telephone answering machine.
Shot over seven months in 2001 as the Giants prepped their first studio record in five years, GIGANTIC: A TALE OF TWO JOHNS is a comprehensive chronicle of the band's 20-year history, told through performance, animation, videos and hilarious commentaries from friends and fans.
