Fischerspooner

Biography

Fischerspooner are one of those bands that cause critics to froth at the mouth. When the duo's debut, #1, came out in the U.K. in 2002, NME proclaimed the group, "the best thing to happen to music since electricity." A grand statement, but Fischerspooner did indeed shake up electro pop, using their now-notorious live show to create a buzz as loud and deviant as the synthesizers that slither through their first single "Emerge." Their performances are over-the-top, elaborately costumed and choreographed glam extravaganzas that mix the best and worst of pop culture, Vegas glitz and art house attitude. At the center of the spectacle stand Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner (hence "Fischerspooner"), who met in Chicago at art school. They reconnected later in New York City, and performed their first show at a Starbucks in the East Village. Fischerspooner have since left those latte days behind, and now associate with a crowd more likely to be sipping, say, grapefruit martinis. They've collaborated with Kylie Minogue, David Bowie, Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson and Stefane Sednaoui, and the 2003 opening of FS Studios, a performance and production space in Brooklyn, should inject some more blood (faux, of course) into Fischerspooner's short -- but so far very glittery -- legacy.
