TMBG Shirt #49: Installing and Servicing Melody

A fairly simple shirt this week, with the farmiliar TMBG logo surrounded by their slogan printed thrice: "Installing and Servicing Melody Since 1982."

MP3 of the Week:
Weep Day by Logan Whitehurst

I would like to put the usual live content on hold this week to honor a very special musician. Logan Whitehurst was not just an amazing talent, but an incredibly giving person. Anyone that counted him as a friend knows what I'm talking about. Logan died of brain cancer five years ago today, at age 29. He was taken from us far too soon, and I for one will never forget his amazing work and generous spirit. I highly recommend you checking out Logan's music, most of which is available for free download on the Logan Whitehurst Music Archive, including the above cover of TMBG's Weep Day. They Might Be Giants was Logan's favorite band, and it shows in his music. Sadly, I never had the chance to see him perform. His final album, "Very Tiny Songs" which is still available for sale consists of 81 short songs that were suggested by friends and fans of Logan. My song is the last on the album, because I submitted my idea two weeks late. He wrote and recorded the song anyway, and that's Logan for you. Please donate to the American Cancer Society in the memory of Logan Whitehurst.
