Spoon : The Ghost of your lingers- Take Away Show version Spoon : Got Nuffin - Take Away Show version Spoon : Black Like Me - Take Away Show version One evening in February last year, Furtif Garrincha and I were discussing the problems of “big” bands, one of which we agreed as being the fact that they never came to visit us in France; Spoon being an example of this. And then, as if to put a lid on our discussions, God, (or at least some omnipotent force,) decided to fulfil our wish of seeing them return to Paris.

We were intimidated, and silently worried upon what remedy would be needed to help relax the atmosphere. Finally though, they made the first move. As soon as those starting chords struck out they formed a somewhat tense jubilance within us that rooted us to the spot, whilst the sound of thumping sticks upon dusty old vinyls sent a shivering rhythm down our spines. This pure version of “The Ghost Within You Lingers” was their way of showing us they were happy to be here. Finally, there was no need for words. Réal : Nathanael Le Scouarnec Tourné à Paris The four lads took it upon themselves to play in the narrowest part of the Phonogalerie, which became even narrower once the crew had squashed themselves in too. In this small corner, brimming with music archives, we were given their compressed, claustrophobic rendition of “Got Nuffin.” With their growing promiscuity acting as a catalyst, the band’s emotive excitement began to sweat through the impeccable facades of their compositions. The voice of Britt Daniels delved dangerously between the pulsing rhythm and guitar flecks, revealing the hidden desperation contained within the muscular indie hit.
