A Spoon Called Phranc are two girls who took a seat in 2002 to banish loud lo-fi bulk on a 4 track. With any instument available two albums established, containing catchy handmade out-of-tune songs. After some time artificial drums were added, turning the shit more into direction disco. Shows on the Ladyfest Berlin, a short tour through Germany, Poland and Czech Republic and a concert on the Silver Rocket Summer 666 Festival in Czech Rebublic (where the prague drummer from the band l'Point was adopted) followed. ASCP joined compilations of the dutch labels „Living Room Records“ and „Delirious Riot Tapes“, as well as of the czech Zivel Magazin. The cooperation with the electro-boys of Sporto fused Powerpop with Gaytunes.
The sound of ASCP could be described as a mixture of Oldschool Punk, Lo-Fi Pop, Discopunk and Rock. Screaming, singing „sth. for the eye“ and dirty lyrics. Le Tigre, Sebadoh, Against Me!. That´s Spoons.
Shared the stage with: Ememvoodoopöka, deti deste, Stattmatratzen, Kackala, Deverova Chyba, Anyway etc.

quotes: jana (uglydog records, pete the pirate squid):
"say hello to antje and elisabeth, also driven into making music by the endless dullness our shared hometown is characterized by (at least i think so). everyone should do that! all the teenagers that are able to look beyond the latest lipstick fashion should fight back, armed with 4-tracks, any possible instruments and lyrics that are both witty and entertaining - just as a spoon called phranc do."
