Punknews contributor Greg Simpson has introduced This Might Be a Podcast, a show for They Might Be Giants superfans. On this episode, Hutch Harris, solo artist formerly of indie/punk/ garage band The Thermals (Sub Pop, Kill Rock Stars, Saddle Creek) joins Greg on This Might Be a Podcast to talk about one of his favorite TMBG songs, "Dead" from the 1990 classic and platinum-selling album Flood.

Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new track by The Murderburgers from Scotland!
"Pick A Knife, Any Knife" finds the band at the apex of their form. As always, they are propelled by the classic Ramones buzzsaw charge. On top of that, they drop vocals straight out of the '90s Gilman scene all while detailing a grisly knife wound. As always, they slip a humorously dark outlook in between the catchy chords: "Codeine doesn't make me as happy as you, but it'll have to do for tonight…"
Fraser Murderburger is currently finishing up a solo acoustic tour in the USA, after which the full band will be on tour with Get Married (indicated below with an *). Check out those dates and the new tune below, right now!Read more
