There are five artists with this name: 1.) Spot, originally signed to Ardent records, released their critically acclaimed self-titled album in 1995 and scored national airplay for "Moon June Spoon." While the band continued to tour nationally to support the debut release, Interscope entered into negotiations with Ardent to acquire Spot. Unfortunately, the deal ended up in litigation within a year, and Spot was forced to quietly ride out the remainder of a 5-year contract without support to tour or release additional material.

An early seventies Swiss band that played fine heavy rock with a blues tinge. ...Did a version of Donovan's "Jersey Thursday" and a particularly manic "Sabre Dance". Blues rock in the Deep Purple-Led Zeppelin style. Bands from this era are heavily into the British heavy blues-rock in fusion with the psychedelic influences of other swiss bands like Krokodil or Country Lane. Members were: Pavlo Pendaki (vocal,keyboards) John Woolloff (lead guitar,vocals) Andre Jungo (bass) Philippe Dubugnon (drums ) Originally on Swiss folk-label EVASION. (Re-released on Ohrwaschl in 1997). Worth searching out. 3.) Spot, a bulgarian skate-punk band from Rousse, formed in 1994 by the name of "Water". A year later the band saw it's debut infront of an audience, this time calling themselves "Counterfit". After few years with numerous gigs and lineup changes, the band finally settled with the name "Spot" in 1999 and retains it's quartet formation till today. 4.) Spot, a Harlem based rapper, reappeared in January of 2006, Spot was once again a hot item appearing on mixtapes and mixshow playlist across the nation. He then dropped the extremely well-received mixtape The Good Son. Alongside former DJ, now Atlantic Records Director of A&R Sickamore, The Good Son featured collaborations with Jim Jones, Papoose and production from Just Blaze, the SupaSonics and Spot himself. Reportedly moving north of 25,000 copies, this mixtape established Spot as one of top newcomers in the music business. After touring the country with the likes of Akon, David Banner and DFL and performing at various infamous NY prisons including Rikers Island and Arthur Kills Maximum Penitentiary, Spot made history becoming the first rapper to promote a mixtape on MTV when he appeared on Sucka Free (formerly Direct Effects) to promote his second foray into the mixtape game, A Dollar & A Dream. Packaged as a street album, A Dollar & A Dream was a success worldwide, even garnering the best album ratings of the year by one french publication.  Introducing the world to a then-unsigned Serius Jones and featuring music from top international producers, A Dollar & A Dream produced an international mixshow hit in "Way We Ride." After selling out, the mixtape was heavily bootlegged, and countless song ideas and lines were borrowed by more established hip hop acts. In addition the previous accomplishments, Spot has performed the theme songs for a platinum DVD series (The Infamous Times), a syndicated television show (Hip Hop Hold 'Em) and contributed music to both MTV (various programming) and BET (50 Shots - Police Brutality). 5.)
