The Unknown: Spoon – And The Dish Ran Away

 Last night I re-watched the first act to Full Metal Jacket.  Easily one of the best first acts in a modern film.  In fact, the first scene in the barracks may be one of the best scenes written for film…ever.  The dialogue is so sharp, it would make Swearingen from Deadwood blush.  As brilliant as this film is…when it comes to war films, it seems to never get the wide recognition it deserves.  Rabid cinemaniacs adore it…but I can never understand why the mainstream tends to rank it low on the list.
This week sees the release of Spoon’s new album Transference.  A band who is very well respected…and loved by audiophiles…but never seems to get the mainstream recognition it deserves.
Below is a B-side collection of Spoon’s rare tracks from the 00s.  Not included are songs from EPs, digital singles, and Britt Daniel’s solo work.  But this should be everything else.  Enjoy…and go buy the new album, you won’t be disappointed.
Here is Spoon – And The Dish Ran Away:

Bonus Internet Track:
Buy Spoon’s new album Transference for only $3.99.   That’s nothing…that’s less than a ringtone.  And if I get a good response…I’ll post Spoon’s super rare demos album “Get Nice” at the end of the week.
