Spoon's Monthy Bonus Tracks (nearly a year)

Spoon: Demos and Bonus tracks

Spoon has always been very generous to their fans (see Devils Dishes and You Could Say So Motherfucker Vol. 1 & 2) - so when the band announced on Valentine's Day '08 that they would be releasing a new demo track for every month through their website, I was very happy. With many thanks to fellow Spoon fan Peter Herron (see Peter's exhaustive Spoon discography here) for filling in the gaps of songs that I had missed over 2008, I now present the entire set of bonus tracks and their respective months for all to enjoy. Posted this month is a great live version of "The Beast and Dragon, Adored" which was recorded at a '05 Sydney show during their Gimme Fiction tour. I'm sure more tracks are to follow, I just wanted to post them here for anyone who wanted them. If anyone notices errors or has other songs I'm missing, please correct me. Enjoy!

"Paper Tiger" (live Sydney '05) February
"Eddie's Ragga" (demo) March
"Cherry Bomb" (country version) April #1
"I Turn My Camera On" (first version) April #2
"Don't Let It Get You Down" (demo) May

Thanks for the post and the link from the messageboard. I'd listened to a few of these, but not all.

I own every official Spoon album, most of the non-super-rare singles, and many compilation/rare/live tracks.

But I don't have the Devil's Dishes comp (or the other one) - anyone know how I can get them? I want the Kill the Moonlight outtakes (this is the Spoon album I started with; it's the one I love the best)

Simon: You might be interested in the Spoon messageboard on Yahoo!

I was able to get the Devil's Dishes comp from someone on there a while back, and I think I still have it on my home computer. You can search the message archives there or post a new thread about it.

Or, if I can host them, I can probably get you the comps. Maybe you can send me a reminder and your email? I'm at justindlc@yahoo.com.

Hey Simon,
If that didn't work for you, contact me. I can get you all the Spoon comps that the Yahoo group has made.
