Introducing Spoon (Merge Recs)

Spoon hails from Austin, TX by way of Portland, OR.  The band has found main stream success with albums Gimme Fiction and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (Some great rock’n’roll, reached #10 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Indepedent Album Chart).

The band’s name comes from 1970’s German band Can’s hit song “Spoon”.  It was the theme for the film Das Messer.

Their newest album Transference while strangely not quite as good as the last album, shows their fine ears and excellent musicianship.  Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, and company are excellent live.  Check out “Nobody Gets Me But You Do”.
