Spoon have announced that they are reissuing much of their back catalogue as part of their new ‘Slay On Cue’ retrospective series.
A number of the band’s classic records are set to be released worldwide on both vinyl and CD for the very first time as part of the campaign.
‘Slay On Cue’ will see the reissue of eight of Spoon’s first records in their original editions, starting with 1996’s ‘Telephono’ and the ‘Soft Effects’ EP before continuing with ‘A Series Of Sneaks’ (1998), ‘Girls Can Tell’ (2001), ‘Kill The Moonlight’ (2002), ‘Gimme Fiction’ (2005), ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’ (2007) and ‘Transference’ (2010).
‘Telephono’ and the ‘Soft Effects’ EP will be the first reissues in the ‘Slay On Cue’ campaign on July 24. The band’s next three LPs in chronological order will then be reissued on August 14, before ‘Gimme Fiction’, ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’ and ‘Transference’ are released on September 11.
Today’s reissue announcement (June 29) has been accompanied by the restored and remastered video for ‘Small Stakes’, which is described by frontman Britt Daniel as “a little glimpse into life in the studio in 2002 during the recording of ‘Kill The Moonlight’, filmed by our friend Peter Simonite.”
Spoon will also release the limited fan-curated compilation LP ‘All The Weird Kids Up Front (Mas Rolas Chidas)’ on August 29 for Record Store Day in North America.
Last year saw Spoon deliver a cover of the John Lennon song ‘Isolation’ during their guest appearance on The Howard Stern Show.
