Release Date:12/11/2015;Notes:Limited deluxe double vinyl LP pressing released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this classic Spoon album. Includes a 24" x 36" poster. Contains the album remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album. Gimme Fiction dragged the sonic pointillism of Kill The Moonlight further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip-hop samples to horse whinnies. How all this directionless Dylan worship and psychedelic goofing resulted in an album as sharply realized as Gimme Fiction is a testament solely to Spoon's self-assurance and tastefulness (and some hard work, and a bit of luck, etc.). Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold. Gimme Fiction deserves special recognition because it's the album where Spoon-backed into a corner-took some crazy leaps, all of them forward. It's a "departure point" for a band that, lucky for us, has never made a real departure.;Track List:1. The Beast and Dragon Adored;2. The Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine;3. I Turn My Camera on;4.
