Watch Jake and Matty cover the They Might Be Giants classic “Your Racist Friend” in an acoustic ska/rocksteady style. This song is from TMBG’s 1990 album “Flood” and is one of Jake’s favorites. He first got the cassette in the early 90s and he’s been
a fan obsessed ever since.
TMBG fans will also appreciate just how–to no one’s surprise–Matty nails the trumpet solo, originally recorded by jazz great Charlie Sepulveda. Jake and Matty are joined by their friend Thom Dunn from The Roland High Life for a shreddy guitar solo.
