In today’s HELL YES news, Jon Batiste has been named as the band leader when Stephen Colbert takes over the “Late Show” on September 8, 2015.
Here’s the introductory video for your viewing pleasure. Stephen, beware of accidental powdered sugar inhalation!
Here’s the video of Spoon covering The Cramps “TV Set” on Conan last night; I’ve seen them play it a few times live, and this is by far their best performance of it yet. It is, no doubt, better than the film for which it was recorded. You can buy their “TV Set” single now, here and here.
Spoon’s continuing their tour in support of They Want My Soul this summer, and I cannot stress highly enough: DO NOT MISS THEM.
