If one guy decided to use song as a journal, and another guy said "I like that journal/song; I want to play [fill in random instrument(s)] on that," you'd have That's Him! That's the Guy!

Biography

David Martin was born the son of Army parents on Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska. He grew up with a fair amount of good ol' boy in his blood: his first words were "God damn it," and his first exposure to music was country radio blaring in his dad's pickup truck. At age 14, after the 5th move of his life, David met Joseph Scott (familiar as a member of indie-folk band Canada) in Muskegon, MI. David and Joseph shared interests in punk rock and disavowal of their good ol' boy heritages (Missouri and Kentucky, respectively). At age 24, David decided that the songs he had been writing alone in his bedroom were good enough for public scrutiny. Joe agreed, added his talents, and TH!TTG! was formed.

Their debut six song EP has been met with acclaim from press and fans alike. The album has received airplay at WCBN, WTHS, KSUA, WHUS, WMBR and others stateside, and RDU (New Zealand), CKUA (Canada) and Peel Grass (The Netherlands) overseas. The album was also nominated for a Jammie for Best Local Folk album in West Michigan. Their first full-length, entitled "The Army Life," will be released in Fall 2007.

Lyrics

Polish Lancers

Written By: David Martin

All that we say
all that we say
can be said with a razorblade

All that we say
all that we say
can be said with a razorblade

So I want
want the kind of love
that's carved into trees

All that life is
all that life is
is the sum of our disappointments

All that life is
all that life is
is the sum of our disappointments

So I will
I will take a wife
and I will be her life

All that love is
All that love is
is one final charge of the
Polish Cavalry

All that love is
All that love is
is one final charge of the
Polish Cavalry

So we all
we all are lancers
but we're up against Panzers
