Their first EP for Elektra, released to promote the Flood album, this is one of the fan-favorite EPs. They Might Be Giants have put different versions of all three non-remix B-sides on different releases. "James K. Polk" was re-recorded for Factory Showroom after fans started shouting for it at concerts, leaving They Might Be Giants to admit they didn't remember how to play that one. A live version of "Stormy Pinkness" showed up on the best-of Dial-A-Song and "Ant" was re-recorded with a horn section for Indestructible Object. It's pretty good, but I'm a much bigger fan of the Apollo 18-era B-sides. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
