The significance of Linnell’s collaborations extends beyond his partnership with John Flansburgh. He has worked with notable figures in the music industry, including Brian Doherty, Marty Beller, and Dan Miller, who have been part of TMBG’s touring band. Collaborations with producers like Patrick Dillett, who has helped shape the sound of several TMBG albums, and artists such as Marcel Dzama for album artwork.
