A to Z Flashback: Tripping Daisy

Posted By on Wed, Jun 20, 2007 at 4:15 PM

With this week's announcement that the Polyphonic Spree is playing the Pageant on Saturday, August 4 (see more visuals here), we here at A to Z HQ started reminiscing about PS leader's Tim DeLaughter's former band, Tripping Daisy. Since it's unofficially 1990s week on our blog -- see our stories on Ben Folds, Smashing Pumpkins and Tool -- I decided to post three great YouTube videos from TD. When A to Z was a wee, flannel-wearing lass with bad hair, she remembers digging on these guys pretty hardcore. (DeLaughter is also one of the nicest, most genuine musicians I've ever interviewed, as well -- so any continued success he has is well-deserved.) See 'em in action after the jump.

"My Umbrella" (A to Z's favorite):

"I Got a Girl":

Tripping Daisy and Green Apple Quick Step, live in Chicago (Obscure band alert! Of course I dig the latter, cause I'm a nerd.):
