The core of Geggy Tah comprises Greg Kurstin and Tommy Jordan. Each of them has a younger sister who was unable to pronounce her brother’s name when very young; “Geggy” and “Tah” were the baby girls’ mispronunciations of their brother’s names.
Geggy Tah’s first release, Grand Opening, appeared in 1994 on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. For their 1996 release Sacred Cow, they added drummer Daren Hahn to the lineup. Also on Luaka Bop, the album spawned the hit single “Whoever You Are.” The song appeared in a Mercedes commercial circa 2001.
In 1999, the band announced a new album entitled Music Inspired by The Fragrance, and released two songs (“Space Heater” and “Sweat”) on the web in mp3 format. However (in part because of Luaka Bop’s move from Warner Brothers to Virgin Records) the album went unreleased until 2001, by which point it had acquired a new title: Into The Oh.
