1997: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Kafe Antzokia, Bilbao, Spain
w/ Demolition Doll Rods

“Sonaban engrasadísimos, se notaba que estaban en su momento. En la atmosfera se palpaba esa flipada, para todos los allí presentes creo que fue un viaje brutal, personalmente tuve la sensación de ver a un semidiós. El sonido, la ejecución de la banda, la actitud de Jon, todo fue la hostia. Lo recuerdo como algo verdaderamente salvaje, pocas veces se unen todos los factores como ese día para que el espectáculo fuera histórico.” – Joseba Irazoki (Atom Rhumba) (https://www.ruta66.es/2018/03/meeting-point/meeting-point-joseba-irazoki-atom-rhumba/)

2003: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Nyabinishi Dance Hall, Youngstown, OH, US

2007: Heavy Trash – Spitz, London, UK
w/ Jim Jones Revue

“Jon Spencer has a punk blues pedigree that is beyond reproach. His bands, collaborations and side-projects are a roll call in rock’n’roll and punk blues innovation. Heavy Trash is Jon’s latest project with fellow NYC resident Matt verta-Ray from Speedball baby. Heavy Trash is a hip shaking celebration of rock ‘n’ toll’s primary elements, namely rock-a-billy – the blues hillbilly Southern cousin. Support from The Jim Jones who play supercharged back to basics rock ‘n’ roll and sound like a collison between Little Richard and the MC5!”

“15 BANDS WHO ARE CRUCIAL TO THE HISTORY OF NOISE MUSIC”

New feature on Alternative Press includes Pussy Galore, Lydia Lunch, Sonic Youth and Jesus & Mary Chain among many others.

“Pussy Galore

Mid-’80s Washington, D.C. emigrates to the Lower East Side, Pussy Galore brought the rock ’n’ roll and punk attitudes back to noise. Fronted by future Blues Explosion mastermind Jon Spencer, PG raised an unholy din not dissimilar to putting a copy of the Nuggets ’60s garage comp and some scuffed-up Rolling Stones 45s through a meat grinder. It helped to have ex-Sonic Youth drummer Bert pounding a kit that featured a few bits and bobs culled from a junkyard. Lacking a bass guitar, PG’s three-guitar assault was the ultimate simultaneous desecration/celebration of all that’s great about rock ’n’ roll.”

“Given the stripped down to the bone trio of two guitars (Judah Bauer, fresh off from a multi-year consignment duty with Cat Power) and drums (the inimitable Russell Simins banging away in a most kinetic manner) it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that it would be all mid- and high-range frequencies blasting out of the PAs and amps, but the band’s always been influenced by hip-hop culture, and somewhere Simins had access to a device that would send out depth-charge blasts of full bass every once in a while.” – Tim Bugbee / BigTakeOver.com

March 31 – On This Day!

1988: Pussy Galore – Drums, New York City, NY, US*
w/ B.A.L.L. (and possibly The Gun Club)

*The exact date of this show is unconfirmed. The New York Times article would make the date March 31, 1988 but The Gun Club show at this venue is recorded in many places as March 29, 1988 with Die Monster Die supporting and the band are documented in Canada on March 31, 1988.

Although Pussy Galore did play with The Gun Club in March 1988 it is not known exactly at which shows both bands performed.

“The group grooved with split-second agility from one odd, off balanced rhythmic pattern to another. The drummer, Bob Bert, with a gas tank strapped to his bass drum, a car spring on top of that and sheets of metal attached to his snare drum, slammed out industrial, stamp-press beats. In its rock extremism, Pussy Galore is trying to squeeze meaning out of rock, when much of rock’s original power has been drained away. It’s a tough job, but the group does it well.” – Peter Watrous, New York Times (4 April 1988)

1999: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Studio 22, ABC, Sydney, Australia
*Broadcast on 15 July 1999*

“We love rock ‘n’ roll, we love country, we love blues, we love soul, we love funk, we love rap, we love free jazz, we love all different kinds of music but the thing is it wouldn’t mean anything if we weren’t doing something new with it, if we weren’t putting some kind of twist or spin on it, if there wasn’t some kind of…something coming from each of us, if there wasn’t some kind of stamp of us as individuals, as us as people, something that makes we we do special and unique.

You know, and that’s it. Yeah, you can dig all you want in the past but if you’re just doing the same old thing, that’s boring, you’ve got to do something new, you’ve got to do something special. There’s got to be something from the person, something of the people.” – Jon Spencer
