Spoon covers the Cramps on Conan

Posted on


Spoon covered the Cramps’ 1980 manic “TV Set” for the recent remake of another ’80s gem, Poltergeist—and they brought their version of it to Conan Wednesday night.

Poltergeist itself isn’t doing so well—it currently has a measly 32 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. But Spoon’s rendition of “TV Set” is pretty irresistible: The five-piece band stays relatively true to the original but adds some extra echoes to it for a spooky (and fun) effect. Watch below, and pick up the single on iTunes now.
