Daryl: Keys & Lead Vox
Matt: Bass & Artwork
Chris: Drums
Smooth Al: Sax
Kenny: Trombone & Backing Vox

Based in an old train station in Aberdeenshire, in Scotland, the 'Spoons have been brewing up tunes since late 2012. Their sound has been described as old-school R&B, played by punks. They like that description (well, some more than others).

They gig when they can, and they don't when they can't. They've been known to masquerade as grown men from time to time. And they would very much like it if you'd buy a CD.

released August 5, 2015

All songs were written by the Inevitable Teaspoons.

The whole shebang was expertly recorded in 8 hours by Paul at Captain Tom's. It was all mixed and mastered in another 4 or 5. And we still ran out of money before we could print CDs.



Well over 1000 teabags were harmed in the making of this EP.

Track Name: Jam On The Rhodes
Long road leading into the endless darkness
Five below, they say there’ll be snow the while
Heading home, down by the Channel
Before the morning light
I’m in a jam on the roads just trying to get home tonight

Said my farewells by the frozen roadside
No stars above when I left my love that night
Wishing she could be here beside me
Along for the ride
I’m in a jam in the roads just trying to get home tonight

Heavy traffic, fire on the road
Count the mileposts down, long way to go

(break)

Solitude no object to conversation
When you’re whiling six hundred miles away
Been talking to myself for so long
Sometimes I get a reply
I’m in a jam in the roads just trying to get home tonight

Brimstone and ice and suicidal drivers
If I survive I swear I’m never driving again
Got to get to sanctuary
Before the storm arrives
I’m in a jam in the roads just trying to get home tonight

Heavy traffic, fire on the road
Count the mileposts down, long way to go
Track Name: The Court Of Public Opinion
VERSE 1:
Benches abuzz with gossip and hearsay
Who's friends with who?
Thumb collection contest winner
Well, look at you.
Pages of faces stare through the window
Picture enlarged.
Tried in the court of public opinion
Guilty as charged.

CHORUS:
I don't know how we
Ended up here
Caught in the spell of a world wide daydream
We should get out more
Conquer the fear
Quickly, my dear.

VERSE 2:
Paper is dead and pens are for oldies
Get with the times
Passive aggressive rant fixes problems
And perceived crimes
Wail at the wall and seek your redemption
Power discharged
Tried in the court of public opinion
Guilty as charged.

BRIDGE:
We've got nothing to say
We'll just sit here all day
We're just wasting away

CHORUS

VERSE 3:
Dock's got no lock and no burly bouncers
Door's open wide
Run past the judge and discharge the jury
Escape outside
Go find your friends, there's comfort in numbers
A lesson learned.
Tried in the court of public opinion
The court is adjourned.
Track Name: Mr Hubble
I’m so dumb
I think I’m gonna tell her
Tell her for sure
That’ll burst her bubble

She’s got me
Spinnin’ all around
Got me in the air
Just like Mr Hubble

Gave her my love
Didn’t make her sweet
I’m an imbecile
An imbecee...li....ous

I gotta tell you
I’m hangin’ off the edge
I’ve gotta bounce right back
And stop seeing double

She don’t care
But now I’m caring less
Now I’m gonna burst
I’m gonna burst her bubble
Track Name: Spartan Tartan
And if you, believe, there's nothing
Waiting at the other end
Wouldn't, you like to think you're
Wro-ong?

But if you've, conceived of something
I can't really comprehend
How can, I blame you when I
Find you're too far gone?

Just because you're ill-equipped
Doesn't mean you've been cut adrift
There's no reason to hang on but you can't quite quit
The spartan tartan's starting to itch

If you, concede there's one thing
Pass it on to me my friend
Can't quite, create the cause you
Sou-ought

And when you, proceed with hunting
Chasing that elusive blend
Don't come, to me when you cast
Out your last clear thought

Just because you're ill-equipped
Doesn't mean you've been cut adrift
There's no reason to hang on but you can't quite quit
The spartan tartan's starting to itch
With your indecision
Track Name: Vicious Spiral
Trouble in the papers, well there’s trouble on the screen
But the real trouble’s brewing up behind the scenes

For the world is not as endless as it seems
While we’re living way beyond our means
Vicious spiral (x 3)
Keep on spinning down

Development, expansion, exploitation all around
Got to keep on growing, ain’t no time for slowing down

But the world is not as endless as it seems
While we’re living way beyond our means
Vicious spiral (x 3)
Keep on spinning down

Disregard the warnings while there’s profit to amass
Doctrine irrevocably embedded in the past
Tinker with the system when you know that it can’t last
Rearrange the deckchairs while the liner’s sinking fast

(break)

But the world is not as endless as it seems
While we’re living way beyond our means
Vicious spiral (x 3)
Keep on spinning down
