The Spooks’ Last Philly Show Before Summer U.S. Tour at KFN July 17

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Saturday, July 17, 2010


Not to be confused with hometown hip-hop/R&B crew of the same moniker, Fishtown’s The Spooks may be lost in time. Their unassailably lo-fi, surf-influenced sound is immersed in a fjord of nostalgic throwback reserves, flowing with reverb-heavy erratic guitars and granular subjacent vocals – or late ‘60s/early ’70s crossover garage rock as the kiddios say. But their fancy for this overtaxed genus is never tiresome – instead, it’s like you’re wearing a comfy, over-sized Blue Cheer t-shirt while watching Freaks and Geeks on your couch. You just know you were born three decades too late. Catch them tonight at KFN before they head off for the rest of the summer on a U.S. tour! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front Street, 7:30 pm, $8, 21+ (Photo by Megan Trosclair) – Annamarya Scaccia
