What if Particle Man was recorded on Jug Band Instruments?

I had a random thought recently when I heard this catchy 1990 tune from They Might Be Giants... what if they were a jug band??? Hmmm. I made this Particle Man cover using tenor banjo, jug, harmonica, vocals, siren whistle, and bicycle bell. Why not?

Thanks for checking it out. I agree. I loved Flood. It stood out amongst all the distorted guitars and heavy drumming.

One of the greatest albums of the 90's.

Thanks Doug & John. It’s always fun to see the final result of these vids. Btw, Texas Tuba is a great name.

I really enjoy these multi-instrument integrations Kale! They are always fun and showcase your versatility. Happy Sunday!

Kale playing purty good Texas Tuba and banjer.   Happy chit, Chirlock.  I am inspired.

Yes... that was a fun tune. I like Istanbul (not Constantinople) as well. Thanks for checking it out Ambrose.

Nice one Kyle. I remember They might be giants - Birdhouse in your soul.
