NEWS – EXPLOSION!

More gyrating, grunting, hollering and general all-round perviness on the way...

The JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION are to showcase new material at a handful of US tour dates, NME.COM can reveal.

The group are currently demoing tracks for the new as-yet-untitled record, but NME.COM understands that to date a producer has not been chosen.

The tour will call at:

Baton Rouge Varsity Theatre (February 22)

New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center (23)

Dallas Gypsy Tea Ballroom (24)

In other news, as previously reported on NME.COM, Jon Spencer has collaborated with Add N to (X) for two tracks on the group’s ‘The Poker Roll’ single, released on March 12 through Mute.

Tracks ‘White Scrapie’ and ‘Wax Gravy’, which do not appear on the Add N to (X) album, were recorded last year, according to a spokesperson at Mute.
