Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is turning 10 10 10 10 10 with double-vinyl reissue this October

Hey. LISTEN UP, all you glue-sniffing vaporware punks and delinquent footwork upstarts! Much like James Hurley, Spoon is still cool…in fact, SPOON has ALWAYS BEEN COOL.

And, lest some errant “hot thought” makes you forget that stone-cold FACT here in 2017, the stalwart defenders of capital-I Indie Rock over at Merge Records will fucking PROVE IT to you with the announcement of a snazzy, deluxe, 2-LP, 10th anniversary edition of the album that cemented the Austin-based “rock” band’s COOLNESS once-and-for-all back in the day: the inimitable motherfucking “Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.

I mean, seriously; WHO THE HELL ARE YOU not to appreciate this landmark record…made with real instruments…on magnetic tape machines…by Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, and…uh, you know, some other guys??? Nobody; that’s who. Keep reading.

In addition to the complete studio album — fully remastered by Howie Weinberg — the new 10th anniversary package features the rare-AF, 12-track Get Nice! EP— and both albums have been lovingly, painstakingly hand carved, ONE GROOVE AT A TIME, onto 180-gram vinyl mined from an asteroid in outer space by super-intelligent robots and packaged “in a gatefold jacket with updated art.” It’s just crazy.

Also, if you pre-order the reissue from Merge’s webstore, you can get this sweet t-shirt thrown in “at a $5 bundle discount.” (See, back in 2007, people used to walk around wearing t-shirts with band names printed on them and jeans instead of yoga pants and Under Amour “athleisure-ware” like they do here in “the future.”)

So, get those orders in today, ya little punks. Also, please check out this amazing smattering of Spoon-related info-tainment that I gathered up for you. IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME.
