Description

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion does not play the blues. Sure, their music is all rooted in the blues, but isn't everything? Spencer does have a larger-than-life theatricality about him that is very old-school blues, but with a knowing wink. The band emerged in the early '90s a tangle of incomprehensible distortion and punk rock, heaping on more and more influences each year (soul, garage-rock, hip-hop), but always with that signature '90s detached irony that made Beck so famous. After an eight-year hiatus they put out 2012's Meat+Bone, a straight-forward, loud, dirty rock & roll album, with barely a hint of irony. (Stephen Layton)
