The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - 'Meat and Bone'

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - 'Meat and Bone'

For those who consider JSBX nothing but a snug-leather-pants-wearing, Black & White hair-pomade-coated, one-trick pony, we hereby present you with a potent continuation of the finest sonic stunt a horse has ever pulled. The trio’s first new...

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

The Blues Explosion have spent the past 16 years blazing their own trail through old-school rhythm and booze. This is punk rock as God intended it: shouty, bloody loud and sounding like it was recorded live in a seedy backstreet bar full of...

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Sweet 'N' Sour

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Sweet 'N' Sour

After the success of White Stripes, Jon Spencer looked set to clean up. This was, after all, the man who single-handedly reintroduced the blues to a generation of MTV-fed white suburban college rock mooncalves. Sadly, however, he dropped the ball...

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Plastic Fang

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Plastic Fang

As you might expect with a plastic tooth, Jon Spencer 's bark is these days considerably worse than his bite. Once the acme of cool for mildly patronising record shop assistants from London to New York, we now find The White Stripes[/url]...

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : She Said

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : She Said

The new-wave of Detroit garage-punk may have stolen his thunder, but – uhhhn! – nothing will steal Jon Spencer’s thirst for the blues. Or, it would seem, his taste for the red stuff - because ‘She Said’ is one of those things that have...

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : London Oxford Street 100 Club

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : London Oxford...

To all intents and purposes Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and his hot-wired juggernaut rock'n'roll trio should be gone by now. After eleven years on the boards, in the pits, and at the extremes of expression, it's often time to check for a pulse...

Russell Simins: Boston Middle East

If Spinal Tap taught us anything, it's that drummers are not only combustible, but also expendable. As for solo careers, well... they're not really recommended. Sure there's Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters, and 'Breakout', but then again, there's...

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Heavy

Spencer, Jon Blues Explosion : Heavy

In which Lord Snooty himself gets down with a remixed version of a track from his last LP. In the days when the Blues Explosion were riding the crest of their modest little wave, they sounded genuinely upsetting: loud, obnoxious, hopelessly out...

Like being smashed repeatedly about the head with a drumstick, the Blues Explosion method is not subtle and after some time it starts to hurt. While most of the world is still recovering from last year's belligerent 'Acme' opus, Jon Spencer...

Awwwlrighty Momma! Dontcha step on his fake snakeskin boots! Seven albums into his career as the maggot in winkle-pickers of the Big Apple, Jon Spencer is showing no signs of toning down his cat-skinning baadman Old Testament rock'n'roller act....
