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.
When the band stopped by WFUV, we talked about the dreaded "supergroup" moniker, the origins of the band and where they see this whole thing going. Make no mistake: Divine Fits is no side project. This is a great new band with a great record, 'A Thing Called Divine Fits,' and it was a pretty great session, too.
