Spoon announce reissue of 'Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga'

On the tenth anniversary of it’s release, Merge has announced a double vinyl reissue of Spoon’s album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Remastered by Howie Weinberg, it features the studio album on one LP and the 12-track Get Nice! EP—previously available only as a bonus CD—on the other, both packaged in a gatefold jacket with updated art. The reissue will be in stores on October 20th. Spoon, will be hitting the road, starting August 27th in Portland, OR. The band’s latest release Hot Thoughts, now out on Matador Records.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga was recorded throughout 2006 in Austin, TX, by the band and Mike McCarthy (except “The Underdog” which was recorded in Los Angeles with Jon Brion). Starting with “Don’t Make Me a Target,” a song that builds on Spoon’s familiar minimal rhythmic piano/guitar vamp popularized on earlier hits, the album quickly moves into uncharted territory with the atmospheric “The Ghost of You Lingers” and moves through several different stylistic changes from “Cherry Bomb” to the wall-of-sound horns of radio single “The Underdog.” Upon release.
