Spoon - Gimme Fiction

Gimme Fiction


Who misses indie pop? The days before that meant copying as much as you can from the post punk scene circa-1980 (a bassline from Gang Of Four, a chorus from the Knack, Joy Division’s drumbeat, David Byrne’s haircut; yeah, about the haircut, i’m talking to you Franz Ferdinand, in fact, i'm talking to you about everything i mentioned, geeks!), when it was all about good twisted songs with unlike elements in them. Spoon remember, and they present this most excellent collection of skewed pop ditties with untrained vocals, quirky sounds and the occasional dissonant moment. Superb songs, that’s all there is to say.
