The Bobby Lees – Guttermilk (produced by Jon Spencer)

“Woodstock, NY band The Bobby Lees have released a new single, “GutterMilk.” The track was produced by Jon Spencer (The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Pussy Galore, Boss Hog) and brandishes 98 seconds of expertly crafted garage punk at its best. The Bobby Lees are unleashing the track by way of a video directed by John Swab (Let Me Make You a Martyr) who they note, “wanted to capture our energy in an abandoned building with destroyed elements surrounding us.”” – Vents Magazine

Jon Spencer – Guitar World Interview: “I’ve still got the virus!”

“I’m playing in a band because I love these kinds of sounds, this kind of music. It’s always come from a place of devotion — it’s an obsession. I certainly never set out thinking this is a good job, that this could be a career, or that I’m gonna make some money. It’s because I’ve got the bug in me. That’s it. I’ve still got the virus!”

Guitar World have just published a new interview with Jon Spencer.
