Divine Fits - Words and Music - 2012

Divine Fits

When it was announced that Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Handsome Furs/Wolf Parade and Sam Brown of New Blood Turks were forming a new band, the first word that came to mind was "supergroup." Not to my mind, necessarily, but you get the idea. "Supergroup" gives the impression of a bunch of musicians who are passing time between their regular gigs to play around a bit. A distraction, of sorts. Nothing could be further from the case with Divine Fits.
