Biography

They Might Be Giants, sometimes called The Pink Album, is the debut studio album from Brooklyn-based band They Might Be Giants. It was released by Bar/None in 1986. The album generated two singles, “Don’t Let’s Start” and “(She Was A) Hotel Detective”. It is included on Then: The Earlier Years, a compilation of the band’s early material, in its entirety, with the exception of “Don’t Let’s Start”, which is replaced with the single mix for the compilation.
“Don’t Let’s Start”, one of the album’s two singles, is often cited as a key track in the band’s catalogue, and its success contributed positively to the sale of the album. As a result of this prominence, when the band made the move to the major label Elektra Records, “Don’t Let’s Start” was reissued in Europe with alternative B-sides.
In July 2014, the band released a live version of the album at no charge on NoiseTrade. All the songs were recorded during the band’s 2013 tour.
