The Syndicate has had a long running relationship with Spoon, dating back to the band's days on Elektra. When the band could not get a proper CMJ showcase in 1999, The Syndicate booked the band to headline our first Conflict of Interest party at CMJ.

The Syndicate's radio department was hired to promote the following album, Girls Can Tell, to College Radio resulting in Spoon's first #1 at CMJ. From that point on, all Spoon album's have topped the CMJ Radio 200 and FMQB SubModern charts.

  • Over four months atop the CMJ Radio 200 Chart since 2001 (Girls Can TellKill The MoonlightGimme FictionGa Ga Ga Ga GaTransference and They Want My Soul)
