Spoon’s classic Gimme Fiction celebrates its 10th anniversary with a deluxe limited-edition version on 180g double-LP, double-CD, and digital download, to be released on Matador Records (Merge Records in the U.S.) in early 2016. The reissue contains the original album newly-remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, a digital download of nine additional bonus tracks, and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album by The A.V. Club’s Sean O’Neal. The deluxe LP package will also include a 24″ x 36″ poster and a digital download of all songs.
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. Whatever digging or strange alchemy had to go into it, they only produced more gold.
Gimme Fiction deserves special recognition as the album where Spoon took creative and stylistic quantum leaps that resulted in classics “I Turn My Camera On,” “The Beast And Dragon Adored,” “My Mathematical Mind,” “I Summon You” and so many more. 10 years later, Gimme Fiction gets the deluxe vinyl release it so richly deserves.
Listen to and share “Was It You? (demo)” and experience the oral history of Gimme Fiction via the band’s Tumblr, which includes videos, excerpts, and images from the album’s creation and campaign.
