If nothing else, we like two things at Torontoist: the TTC, and bands about spoons. But before there was Spoon, one of the best bands currently making music (and certainly the best one out of Austin, Texas) there was The Spoons, a new-wave band coming straight from the hip and edgy streets of…Burlington. The band enjoyed some short-lived success in the 1980s, especially on the college circuit, and fizzled out as the decade came to an end.
Now, Spacing Wire proudly presents us with this spectacular video (below) for the band’s song, “Romantic Traffic.” And what’s more romantic than the TTC system in 1984? Torontoist loves the footage of “regular” TTC riders singing along at the 3:00 mark. And the song’s really catchy, too; we dare you to to not sing along to that chorus (Doo doo doo doo dodododo).
