Distortion. Always start with distortion.

From the band…

It’s time to make some rock


Well, the day has finally come. We are headed back into the studio to record our long awaited follow-up full length album. This is going to be so stinkin’ great. I mean, it used to be great, and now it will be great again. Wait, that sounds strangely familiar doesn’t it? I feel like it’s been said over and over with no real explanation as to how, but I just can’t place why. Deja vu. You just have to trust, I guess. Whatever, back to the point… I can tell you that we know how we’re going to make some rock great again. First, we’re going to start with distortion. Then, we’re going to play fast, play loud, and take it to TWELVE. And, we’ve again enlisted the talented crew at Studio Unknown, and this time we’re adding extra punch from the superstars at SongBuilder Studios, and Wrightway Studios. Thanks in advance guys, for all your input and patience. And thanks to our families, friends and fans for all the support. We love you all and can’t wait to rock again with you soon.

grubspoon available to play SXSW

You may have read all the buzz lately about Ex Cops blasting McDonalds for offering exposure, but not offering payment, to play SXSW. We’d like to respond by saying first, we are available to play. It sounds like there may be an open slot, so why not fill it with an awesome rock band from the BalWash? Ronald, just drop us a line. Second, I think perhaps a simple “no thanks” would have been sufficient. Why does everything have to be a big deal these days? I mean other than Virginia, there’s really nothing to get that fired up about. Third, the response from Ex Cops was actually veiled genius. What’s the saying, there’s no bad press? Even though Ex Cops comes across a little high and mighty, and whiny, they are getting tons of exposure (despite the golden arches) and that is brilliant. I wonder if it was their master plan all along? Hmmm…

Anyway, what this boils down to is, we’d love to play SXSW. On any of the stages, on any day… even at an event sponsored by Virginia Tourism. I’m not really sure why Virginia would sponsor a show in Texas, but hey, if they did, we’d play. Why? Because you see, we love to rock. We don’t need to do this. We do this because we want to and it makes us happy. We hope our music makes you happy too. Spoon ya soon… maybe in Texas? Things are big down there. Big like the Big Muff. Big like the Big Mac… which by the way, have you seen the new Big Mac commercial? This will never be kale. Hilarious.

Our Tiny Desk Favorites

Well we didn’t win with our Tiny Desk submission. We still maintain that “Gone” is a great new song, and there is little argument that our desk was one of the tiniest, if not the tiniest. Wow, is that how you spell tiniest? Yep. Look it up. Doesn’t it look weird? I know, right?! Tiniest. Tiniest. Anyway, I digress…

We’d like to congratulate Fantastic Negrito. Really great stuff. In our perusing through all the entries, that entry did stand out, so we think NPR got it right. We did have a couple other favorites as well…

For pure amateur comedic genius, we’d like to highlight Cold Blue Mountain’s performance of White North. This is a funny video; surprising coming from such heavy rockers:

And, for impressive solo looping talent, and for playing the friggin’ trombone, we’d like to point you to Christopher Bill doing “I Can’t Lie”:

There were a ton of great entries, but these were two that stood out to us, I mean other than ours. So, awesome job everyone. And thanks NPR for putting the contest on. The Tiny Desk Concert concept is a cool thing y’all are doing and we commend you. I mean, you even featured JEFF the Brotherhood. That is cool.
