I saw the band about a year ago in Des Moines, IA. It was a very fun weekend. I happened to be in the same hotel as the band and got to talk to Eric and Rob a little. Saw Britt as I was getting off the elevator. Met some friends, bunch of laughs, enjoyed a really nice show.
That's the last I've heard of them. Where the hell did this band go? I'll continue to support them no matter what, but really...hey, Britt, hey Deux Deux, hey Hot Pockets...anybody...is the band still functioning? Are they working on an album? Are they taking the year off? Are they at loggerheads over "creative differences"? Is somebody's girlfriend getting in the way? Somebody in rehab? Is one of the guys coming out as a girl? Is Josh coming back? Is Josh taking over? Is Britt moving to Mexico? Did the band just decide that Transference is their best effort and they've maxed out? That's as good as it gets and might as well go out on top?
Really, I'm ok with any of these answers. But how about a word? A rumor? Anything. I just want to know if I should still say Spoon's my favorite band, or if it's time to say "Remember Spoon? Weren't they the greatest?"
