Spoon formed in Austin Texas in 1994 and released their debut CD, Telephono in 1996. Their sound and style were immediately compared to Sonic Youth and Pixies. Spoon's latest project is Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, named after a melody from one of the album's songs "The Ghost of You Lingers."
Fresh from their Saturday Night Live performance on Oct. 6, 2007 and the day after their first of two shows at the world-famous First Ave night club in downtown Minneapolis, Spoon stopped by the Current studios in downtown St. Paul to show some love and chat with Mary Lucia.
Songs performed: "Don't You Evah," "Beast and Dragon ," and "Black Like Me."
