Rowland Stuart Howard wrote "Shivers" at the age of 16 while in the band The Young Charlatans. Howard gained acclaim after joining Melbourne-based band The Boys Next Door, when the song was released as a single. The band changed their name to The Birthday Party and Howard's discordant guitar remained a major factor in their sound.

also, would be interested in hearing from the lone rangers who gave telephono and TWMS their #1

soyrev, Thursday, 30 July 2015 06:07 (one year ago) Permalink

Telephono was my #1. It's the only Spoon album I honestly know backwards and forwards because I've listened to it a gazillion times in the last nearly 20 years.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 30 July 2015 06:31 (one year ago) Permalink

TWMS was my #2 and in short it's just full of great songs, far more than Transference, and still impeccably produced. Y'all need to spend more time with it.

Just read the Guardian review which helpfully points out the title track lifts from Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra’s Love Theme.

I'm a sucker for catchy radio friendly singalong melodies btw.

i have a clear first and last but outside of that i really have most of the albums close together, and i like all of them. but even so, twms #2 and better than transference is basically indefensible.

Really surprised at "Quincy Punk Episode" not hitting. Also would have voted high for "I Saw The Light" mainly for the huge weird extended coda. "Everything Hits" was my unshakeable #1; basically I voted canon (though no "Camera", and "The Way We Get By" would have been v low on my list despite being my entry point into the band). Great poll, great rollout, great images, thanks! Awesome poll. And made me listen to Spoon obsessively over the past couple weeks, which I think is exactly what I needed.

"Bringing on the apocalypse is not considered cool."

*would have voted canon

hardcore dilettante, Sunday, 2 August 2015 05:43 (one year ago) Permalink

The more I listened, the tougher the cuts would have been to make. Esp from Transference: maybe their most wholly "whole" album?

hardcore dilettante, Sunday, 2 August 2015 05:44 (one year ago) Permalink

xpost the liner notes for Transference point out that the first and second half of "I Saw the Light" were mixed at two different studios, something else I noticed listening to Transference again tonight. I guess there's a reason the two halves seem like two different songs.

Kill the Moonlight defines my idea of Spoon-y production, and I so love Don't Let It Get You Down for the way the song rolls out, so complete and still so uncluttered. Gives me goosebumps. Should have had a place.

The images are uniformly excellent, really amazingly well done, Thermo.

I kind of like to think of Spoon as being the band from Summer of 69 if Jimmy hadn't quit and Jody hadn't got married and they HAD got far.

i had one i wasn't crazy about for "All The Girls..."
i think that was it?

proof that i have abandoned indie rock is the scarce attention i paid this band.

@Thermo i would make a "rent i pay" joke here if i knew that song better

The image is a metaphor for my life right now, with a deadbeat sociopath refusing to vacate my basement.

what i absolutely love about you list Alfred is the placement of "They Never Got You." That is my number one from this poll and didn't get a lot of love compared. You have it at number five and that makes me very, very happy.

great overall list too.
