Formed in 1980, Gordon Deppe and Sandy Horne soon made Spoons a different kind of household word. They would help define the sound of pop and new wave in the 80s with hits including Nova Heart, Romantic Traffic, Old Emotions and Tell No Lies. Their album Arias & Symphonies would go on to be named one of the 20 Most Influential Albums of The 80s by The Chart Magazine and their song Nova Heart was recently included in Bob Mersereau’s book The Top 100 Canadian Singles. Not bad for a bunch of kids from Burlington, Ontario.
The Retro 80s movement shows no signs of slowing down. Not one bit. The band is currently recording new material, working on more remixes of their classic hits and will be touring Canada this summer. And as far as Sandy and Gord and a lot of fans are concerned, that is a very good thing indeed.
