About this release

Now known for “Boss Of Me”, the theme for “Malcolm In The Middle”, They Might Be Giants signed to the Elektra label after two successful albums for indie label Bar None. “Flood” was issued in January 1990, with its key tracks produced by top UK team Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley. Their production work on “Birdhouse In Your Soul” helped the single to a # 6 peak in the UK, pushing the album to a peak of # 14. In the US the album was eventually certified platinum.

“Apollo 18” (1992) was self-produced (but mixed by Winstanley), but didn’t quite emulate the chart success of its predecessor. This slipcased set includes nine bonus tracks across the two albums, along with all the lyrics and annotation by Terry Staunton.
