"The Blues is number one!"
Some years ago, Jon Spencer ran up to an MTV camera on 120 Minutes and yelled that several times. During the 90s, JSBX displayed the ideas of rock and roll better than anyone I have heard. Arrogant, loud, and electrifying describes their concerts. Carried on Matador Records, the band is Jon Spencer(vocals, guitar, and theremin), Judah Bauer(guitar), and Russell Simins(drums). As far as the band's credibility is concerned, I think artists they have worked with speak for them:
Jon Spencer started the Blues Explosion in 1990 after playing in Pussy Galore in the 1980's. He toured with his wife, Christina Martinez, in Boss Hog last summer. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion remains extremely original and respects where it comes from.
