I've seen the Long Winters play two versions of Mimi: the slow version (as heard on The Worst You Can Do Is Harm), and a fast version (not available in studio format, as far as I know, but a live version is available in MP3 format here. ) When they played at the Seattle Art Museum earlier this year,...

hideous retro cover art?!? Sheesh! I think what Thingmakers put together is fantastic. They always put together something that is different, engaging, and TACTILE. How about that thermography on the cover? Excellent work.
Did anyone else see the short set that Sean and John played before They Might Be Giants last night (5/6/03) at the Croc?
