Before there was “Attack of the Show,” there was “The Screen Savers” on TechTV (which eventually merged with AotS’ network G4). And among the awesome guests who made appearances were They Might Be Giants.
I’d never seen this clip of They Might Be Giants performing fan favorite “Particle Man” with John Linnell playing the baritone sax part on some weird handheld synthesizer thingy, and having fun struggling with the little stylus.
They also did “Stalk of Wheat,” “Another First Kiss” and “Wicked Little Critta” on the show (search results here). I found this on Paste Magazine’s “23 Greatest Sci-Fi Songs of All Time,” which has 2 TMBG songs (and lots of other good stuff).
