Here come 123 podcasts...

They Might Be Giants is - as you doubtless already know - one of my favourite bands. They've built up something of a reputation recently, for creating excellent children's music (including the theme tunes of several Disney TV programmes). The children love "No!" and "Here Come The ABCs" the latter of which came with a DVD with video interpretations of almost all the songs. They're definitely worth having if you have children (or are an ardent fan like me!)

Well, true to the modern idiom, John (Flansburgh) and John (Linnell) appear (in knitted toy form) in a video podcast series that accompanies the US release of their latest CD: "Here Come The 123s" - which is released in the UK in a few weeks time. Chris and Lenni have watched every episode at least four times, but we have all agreed that a track called One Dozen Monkeys is the hit of the album so far. It's short, catchy and typifies what They Might Be Giants is good at.. I'm sure they won't mind if I share a tiny version of it here:
