Spoon have played here in Columbus, OH about six times over the past two year that I have lived here. I haven’t seen them, but probably everyone that I know have went to a Spoon concert. I wasn’t ever a fan until I heard “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb” on the radio and I fell in love. I don’t like much of the “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga” album, but it is definitely worth having.
“You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb” sounds like something The Raveonettes should have recorded, but Spoon is much better than that band. Spoon has been around for awhile and they are just now starting to reading a level of mainstream success. They started back in 1996 and stuck with it, the fact that they didn’t break up is a testament to their dedication. Their first single off of “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga” was “The Underdog,” also a great song.
Here is the video for “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb”
