Spottiswoode & His Enemies evolved from another band...that played in the 1990s in and around Washington, DC (Hey Leslie!). I first encountered them playing music in the middle of my street, and have been a fan and a follower (but never a groupie!) ever since. Have loved listening to the music evolve over the years. Thank you WNYC for featuring this awesome, hardworking band of artists with real chops!

WE LOVE THE ENEMIES! And Jonathan... ;) Hey Cindy Black (above), my brother is the bassist, and we are FROM Seattle! So Seattle is probably the most likely tour spot on the West Coast other than LA...who knows...someday you may get to see the band!

I love Spottiswoode & his enemies. As great as their albums are, they are even better LIVE. I saw them for the first time perform this past October at the Living Room. And I have John Schaefer to thank for that extraordinary experience. Loved them on your show.

I feel like "S&HE" kinda belongs to ME, because my liking of them is so personal. I remember when I first heard them, first bought the music..... but I actually live in Seattle, WA, and have never once gotten to see them! So sad. Anyway, I do like "Majesty" though it's not my absolute fave.. Thank you! Cindy M. Black, Seattle
