So Fuckyeahspoon has been feeding me some updates on, what looks like, a bonafide rerelease of Gimmie Fiction with a 2015 remaster (uh-fuck yeah) and some previously unreleased demos (uh-double fuck yeah). Check on Fuckyeahspoon for more detailed info, of course. Very exciting news.
When this album came out, a friend of mine gave me a copy of both Gimmie Fiction and Girls Can Tell at the same time, and it was some of the best rock music I'd heard in years. Over time, my collection grew and my belief that Britt may be the greatest songwriter of our generation grew. A belief which has yet to be disproven, with the outstanding consistency of Spoon's catalog. I'm still waiting for a stinker of an album. So, anyhow, this will also pretty much be my 10th anniversary as a Spoon fan too. I don't mean to get mushy, but this album means a lot to me. Its a masterpiece that features some of their most outstanding tracks and I can't wait to hear the revision.
What does this album mean to you?
