Spoons - Repeatable

Fri May 28, 2021

Formed in 1980, an intrepid young band from Burlington Ontario would soon make "Spoons" a different kind of household word...

Together with Derrick Ross and Rob Preuss, Gord Deppe and Sandy Horne would help define the sound of pop and New Wave in the 80's, with hits including "Nova Heart", "Romantic Traffic", "Old Emotions" and "Tell No Lies".

Their album "Arias & Symphonies" would go on to be named one of the 20 Most Influential Albums of The 80's by "the Chart" Magazine, and their song "Nova Heart" was recently included in Bob Mersereau's book "the Top 100 Canadian Singles of All Time"...Not bad for a bunch of kids from Burlington, Ontario...

Members Gord Deppe and Sandy Horne’s sentiments stretch two ways, but first and foremost to medical professionals and their ongoing efforts in the face of COVID-19. “We wanted to create a video that reaches out to all of the healthcare workers during this scary time,” Deppe says. “We wanted to thank them, and let them know how grateful we — and the world is — for risking their lives every day for us.”

The Spoons - It’s a "New Day, New World"

Sandy Horne ( bass, vocals) and Gord Deppe ( guitar vocals) are two of the most under-rated and best players in Canadian music history.

Being the only band in Canada that Nile Rogers chose to produce an album and EP is history-making enough but to continue a 40-year career by releasing a new record that speaks to their growth as musicians and a band; still relevant to their fans and making new fans worldwide is pretty cool.

I am from Montreal, where while at Chom-FM, I played every Spoons record ever made and the Quebec audience loved them. The latest offering from The Spoons features their best collection of songs since "Arias and Symphony".

Full of hooks, cool fun tunes and great production by Sandy's husband Jeff, if you were ever a Spoons fan you will not be disappointed but pleasantly surprised by the songs and production.

It’s A New Day New World for 80s Canadian New Wave Icons the Spoons

Thu Apr 04, 2019

In 1980, Gordon Deppe and Sandy Horne made Spoons a different kind of household word...

They would help define the sound of pop and new wave in the 80s with hits including “Nova Heart”, “Romantic Traffic”, “Old Emotions” and “Tell No Lies." Their album Arias & Symphonies would go on to be named one of the 20 Most Influential Albums of The 80s by The Chart Magazine, and their song “Nova Heart” was recently included in Bob Mersereau's book The Top 100 Canadian Singles.

Not bad for a bunch of kids from Burlington, Ontario.

And now, evoking all the fun of their most notorious ear-gems of hits, their newest 12-track missive lands the band firmly in 2019. 

Starting off strong with the signature Spoons sound fans new and never-waning come for, the opening song “All The Wrong Things (In The Right Places)” is set and ready for instant anthem status. Trivia buffs will want to know: its final mix was a collaborative campaign after an online contest had listeners nation-wide submit chants to be mixed into the song’s chorus.
