A Writer's 21st Century Memoir.

Stay Don’t Go by Spoon


Heading back in my iPod again this time to a band that got their start in the 90s. Spoon is an  Austin, Texas band that’s made up of Britt Daniel (vocals, guitar); Jim Eno (drums); Rob Pope (bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, backing vocals) and Eric Harvey (keyboard, guitar, percussion, backing vocals).

According to Wikipedia, “the band was formed in late 1993 by the lead singer and guitarist Britt Daniel and the drummer Jim Eno, after the two met as members of The Alien Beats. The name Spoon was chosen to honor the 1970s German avant-garde band Can, whose hit song “Spoon” was the theme song to the 1985 movie Das Messer aka Jagged Edgein the United States. Eno describes Spoon’s music as “rock ‘n’ roll.”

Stay Don’t Go is a great song, but you should also check out “Don’t You Evah” (my real favorite song from Spoon).
