What Jon Spencer does when his blues aren't exploding.
There’s an argument to be made that Jon Spencer is missing out on a career in the service of the Lord.
Such are his exhortations and a manic stage manner that verges on preaching, the thought occurs that he’s wasted not being behind a pulpit and tending his flock. Still, religion’s loss is music’s gain as he leaves behind the frenzied ramalama of the Blues Explosion to concentrate on the rockabilly psychosis of Heavy Trash.
