ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Spoons began with the coming of the 1980′s; a modest group of four suburban kids from Burlington, Ontario, who became the country’s new wave/techno-pop sweethearts. Gord Deppe, Sandy Horne, Rob Preuss and Derrick Ross would over the next two years be nominated for two Juno Awards, win group of the year at the 1982 U-Know Awards (now known as the Casby’s), have two top ten singles and be presented with a gold award for the sale of 50,000 copies of their sophomoric album “Arias and Symphonies”!

After signing to a small independent Toronto label called Ready Records, run by two recent college graduates (Andy Crosbie and Angus MacKay) their debut album entitled ‘Stick Figure Neighbourhood’ (1981) was released. It was recorded at Grant Avenue Studios in Hamilton, Ontario with a then unknown engineer by the name of Daniel Lanois. The album attracted the attention of college radio, garnered rave press reviews and generated successful college chart activity.

Their follow-up was the widely acclaimed ‘Arias & Symphonies’. It was produced by John Punter who had been working with Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry and Japan and was an engineer at George Martin’s famous Air Studios in London. John came to know of the band while on a trip to Canada to do sound for Japan at their Ryerson Theatre shows. ‘Arias and Symphonies’ spawned the single “Nova Heart”. This prompted the band’s first music video, which led to major TV exposure (especially on Muchmusic which had just hit the airwaves that very same year). Commercial radio airplay followed and the band soon saw themselves opening for such acts as The Police, Culture Club and Simple Minds.
