“Recovery: The Music and The Mayhem”

“We couldn’t do anything about it, it was live,” Dylan Lewis laughs, describing the moment when he and the rest of the Recovery crew watched in horror (and delight) as The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion began to physically tear down the set in 1997.

“You can’t just stop recording. And that’s what defined Recovery — the moments when it all went wrong. That’s everyone’s favourite, Jon Spencer, and it’s up there with my favourites too. It was the moment that music television made sense to me and Recovery was defined. Like ‘this is what we can do, these are the moments we can get.’ It’s beautiful to watch, isn’t it? I loved it. I loved seeing that again.” – junkee.com

“‘Oh my god, this is the greatest moment that’s ever happened on television and I’m standing here watching it live. How wonderful and magical.’ At the end of it, I think I said something like, ‘Yep, my life is complete. This is what we came here to do, this is what rock’n’roll is.’ It was such an amazing, transformative moment and it really did make me realise how powerful [Recovery] could be.” – themusic.com.au

“Beck fears most of his music has been destroyed”

“There’s a [Jon Spencer] Blues Explosion album I did in ’95 where I cut about 10 songs with them in New York City that’s never been released. But I don’t know [whether it’s gone], nobody’s telling us anything. We didn’t hear about it until the last year.”

Beck discussing his recordings with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in an interview published by The Sydney Morning Herald.

Have these songs gradually mutated from their recorded forms during the tours?

Yes, please let your readers know that they are even more wild now than on the record! And I’m so happy to be playing now not just with Bob but with Sam and Sord who were the guys who helped me make the record.”

Jon Spencer & The HITmakers – Bar Brooklyn, Stockholm: Review / Photos

“Every time I see Jon Spencer live in any capacity, I can’t help but think he’s got to be the hardest working man in garage rock show business. This guy doesn’t stop moving the entire set. He’s like James Brown crossed with Stevie Ray Vaughan in the bizarro world.”Jon Spencer – Bar Brooklyn, Debaser, Stockholm, Sweden (13 November 2019).
