WATCH: They Might Be Giants – “Electronic Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” (Video)

1 Dec

 

They Might Be Giants, a band that most know for having created the theme song for Malcolm in the Middle, recently released a rarities album called Raises New and Troubling Questions. The album featured a very awesome synth-based version of “Istanbul (Not Constantinople),” the iconic single from their album Flood. Today, Stereogum premiered the official video for the track, which was directed by the band’s own John Flansburgh. Above, you can watch what happens when Speak and Spell is hooked up to a drum machine.
