"..."You don't understand," declaims Britt Daniel urgently. "We told people we're on at this time..."
"...(OK, maybe it's not that bad.) But judging by the May 2007 Spin magazine, which hit newsstands this week, we're going to have to find some other complaint. From cover boy Britt Daniel on down, Austin is all over this issue like a cat on a june bug..."
"...Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner were fast friends in hard times...."
"...“Thanks for waiting around,” Britt Daniel smiled after “Small Stakes,” the second song in Spoon’s surprise set at Hotel Vegas Tuesday night. “Were we on time?” That depends on who you ask...."
"...Before Divine Fits, the last time Britt Daniel appeared in a band outside of Spoon was with Golden Millennium, a drunken glam-rock tribute act that started as a one-night stand in late 1999...."
"...An annual SXSW songwriters summit, this one nabbed Bob Mould, whose group Hüsker Dü shares its final LP title with the name of this panel. Mould was in some illustrious company: Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws, and rising young indie popper Jeremy Messersmith...."
"..."Thanks for coming. Here's some songs you don't know," greeted Spoon frontman Britt Daniel at Divine Fits' first scheduled show Wednesday night at Beerland..."
"...With debut A Thing Called Divine Fits out a year, Britt Daniel looks perfectly natural onstage with Dan Boeckner. They’re no longer a supergroup, just a regular band with a lot of grooves...."
"...(l-r): Britt Daniel, Josh Zarbo, Jim Eno photograph by Bruce Dye Drake Tungsten and Skellington have the drop on Britt Daniel. Two minor toughs from the Spoonman's nefarious past, Tungsten and Skellington hold all the answers..."
"...With Spoon playing 101X's Independent Workforce Christmas show Monday at the Parish with Morningwood, Stellastarr*, and Alpha Rev (see "Music Listings"), TCB wondered how one 2005 phenomenon rates in another: the ever-expanding blogosphere. Britt Daniel might want to look into a bodyguard or two...."
"...Britt Daniel is at least an hour late, as opposed to Spoon's better half, stickman Jim Eno, who is 10 minutes early. When Soundgarden's song title finally arrives, just after the apparently unrock & roll hour of 11am Saturday morning, his normally furtive glance is filled with squinty red suspicion..."
"...That's because Eno's co-pilot was otherwise occupied. Spoon's blond bard, Britt Daniel, was having Divine Fits, and who could blame him? By that juncture, the pair had been booked for 20 years...."
"...Forty Licks Britt Daniel is too busy to talk to the press, which is a good thing. According to Merge Records, Daniel and his Spoon mates are knee-deep in the studio, toiling away on the follow-up to 2005's Gimme Fiction; he'll surface at the Parish for a solo show tonight (Thursday) with Sally Crewe & the Sudden Moves and Pink Nasty..."
"...By his own admission, sincerity is one of the harder things Spoon's Britt Daniel has ever had to do...."
"...”I had a dream last night,” she said, folding her scarf. “We were all there. [Spoon’s] Britt [Daniel] was wearing a crop top.”..."
"...In Sweet Spirit, Ellis immediately exhibited a more restrained presence onstage, anchored by her playing guitar. Bobby Jealousy pianist Knight came aboard alongside Fichter on bass and Leatherbag/Wire Tree drummer Daniel Blanchard..."
"...Supporters of Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke, who is challenging Republican Ted Cruz for his Senate seat, came out Saturday, April 14, for Barnstorming With Beto at The Long Time, a sandlot baseball field/event space in East Austin. The fundraiser included a baseball game between O'Rourke's home team, Los Diablitos de El Paso, and the local Texas Playboys Baseball Club, and music by Britt Daniel of Spoon, Ben Kweller, and the Tender Things, among others...."
"...Cotton Mather played its first show locally in 1990 at the Cannibal Club. They emerged into a verdant guitar-driven pop scene that included Balloonatic, Hey Zeus, and Britt Daniel's pre-Spoon outfit Skellington...."
"...Please, shut the fuck up! That's what the courtyard is for. Regardless of the immense din of juvenile chatter interrupting the set, Britt Daniel lays down song after song of perfectly crafted indie rock, some tunes off Spoon's ridiculously good Gimme Fiction LP, some older tracks, and a handful of covers..."
"...1990: Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, James McMurtry, Poi Dog Pondering, Daniel Johnston; An Austin Hoot featuring David Halley, Michael Hall, Kris McKay, and Alejandro Escovedo..."
