(Re)Discovering The Noughties: Jamming To Some Spoon


Having grown up in the 1980s and 90s (the process still continues) on a staple diet of 80s pop and 90s alternative rock, I have to admit that musically speaking the noughties (2000-09) kinda passed me by for the most part. (Re)Discovering The Noughties (hopefully it is going be a series) is my way of trying to rectify that.

I’m going to start of this series with a couple of songs by Spoon that are taken from their 2002 album Kill The Moonlight. I became familiar with this indie rock band thanks to the brilliant I Turn My Camera On (Gimme Fiction 2005), but apart from that song and their 2010 album Transference I hadn’t really heard too much of them.

I spent sometime over the weekend listening to Kill The Moonlight and I must say it’s a pretty cool album. While The Way We Get By is the most well known song from the album, my personal favorites are Jonathan Fisk (a song about a high school bully) and Stay Don’t Go (love Bret Daniels’ beat boxing on this song).

Enjoy both these songs below.

  1. It’s one of the best albums of the decade, every song is a killer, no filler. Stay Don’t Go is a masterpiece and Britt Daniels is a genius.
