It’s time for another Monday Classic tune on Running Wolf’s Rant and today I’m taking a little trip down memory lane to 1992. Remember Spin Doctors? Remember “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” ? Well, you should. The song was released on the “Pocket full of Kryptonite” album.
I still remember when this Spin Doctors album was released. Kurt Cobain was still alive and kicking and it wasn’t strange hearing songs from proper early rock bands and grunge bands on Barney Simon’s show on Radio 5 (now 5FM). All the rock fans started wearing Doc Maartens, CODESA was in full swing at a conference center in Kempton Park, FW De Klerk was still the state president in South Africa and my dad bought our first CD player in that year.
“Pocket full of Kryptonite” reached number 3 in the US and number 2 in the UK on the album charts. During a 2011 performance for National Public Radio’s World Cafe, lead singer Chris Barron commented that despite popular belief that the song was about an ex-girlfriend, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” was actually written about his former stepmother.
Spin Doctors started jamming in 1988 in New York City. The band were active until 1999, went into hiatus and started playing again in 2001. They are still going strong. To date they have released 6 studio albums. The current members of the band are Eric Schenkman, Chris Barron, Aaron Comess and Mark White. The band’s former members are Anthony Krizan, Eran Tabib, Ivan Neville and Carl Carter.
