The Jon Spencer Blues Rediscovery.

While writing down headlines, copy and two posts I rediscovered a great band that was (and now again is) one of my favourites: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Some time ago they left out the “Jon Spencer” to be only the “Blues Explosion” what made me miss their last gig in Hamburg. I think on the website of Matador Records you can download some of their old tracks. Believe me, their music is worth a short trip to their website. Chef’s suggestion: “Kawasaki Z117 50 Rock’n’Roll” and “Talk about the Blues”. The video of TATB featured Winona Ryder as Jon Spencer and you can see it here:

And here are Russell, Judah and Jon as they will welcome you on their website:

    Woooo Rock N’ Roll !!! Crypt Style is one of my favourite discs ! And especially one of the only rock discs which I can listen at work without having the perpetual ” can you make your sound lower ? ” by the killjoys AD….

    Crypt Style and I never really were sure if we like each other. Think it just didn’t want to have some sort of ménage à quatre with Acme Plus, Orange and me. You should listen to Damage by the way. Especially Hot Gossip is great.

  • Hello and goodbye.

    I like to change a few things from time to time. Because change is vital. And because I get bored being at the same place for some time and nothing really happens. That's why I moved this blog to another website you get there by clicking on one of the links below. Hopefully we will meet there again, maybe not. If so, we just were not made for each other. Sorry. Bye.
