New Spoon Bonus Material - "You Got Yr Cherry Bomb (From Scratch Demo)"

Spoon At The Fillmore, from the HAD Archive

Here at HAD, we continue to be huge fans of bands transcending RIAA lameness by giving things away for free. Without a doubt, one of the champions of free goodies has to be our buddies in Spoon. Rather than save up rare, live, and demo tracks for some sort of compilation or money-maker for interim record sales, they instead relentlessly release those tracks through the "Bonus" tab of their web site, and they do it every month!

This month's track is a demo of "You Got Yr Cherry Bomb" known as the "From Scratch Demo". It's a chilled-out take on the track from Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, featuring layers of dreamy synths and some dub vocal effects for good measure. That being said, it doesn't sacrifice the track's driving drum and bass lines, and in a way it seems as though this is one track that was always meant for it's album persona. Check it out below.
