“Coachella: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion Brings Its Indescribable Sound to the Valley”

http://www.cvindependent.com/index.php/en-US/music/previews/item/1208-coachella-the-jon-spencer-blues-explosion-brings-its-indescribable-sound-to-the-valley“In the fast-paced, DIY recording session, R.L. Burnside had no problems, Spencer said. “He was a farmer most of his life. He wasn’t a prima donna. It wasn’t like we were recording with Pavarotti or Elton John. (Burnside) was a guy who definitely had no problem with anything, really. He was tough in some ways, for sure.””

CVIndependent.com have posted a Coachella preview which includes a feature on The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and interview with Jon Spencer.

TheQuietus.com: Hang On! Pussy Galore Revisit Dial ‘M’ For Motherfucker

http://thequietus.com/articles/14860-pussy-galore-dial-m-for-motherfucker-review“It’s certainly a rowdy party. Former Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert told me how he was sold on the Pussy Galore manifesto from the get-go: “Jon’s concept for Pussy Galore was Back From The Grave and Pebbles garage comps, early Stones meets Swans, Neubauten etc. Two of my favourite genres, I was sold. Love us or hate us, no one else sounded like or kicked as much ass.”" – thequietus.com

TheQuietus.com have just published Hang On! Pussy Galore Revisit Dial ‘M’ For Motherfucker by Nick Hutchings.

The extensive article about the 25th Anniversary of the Pussy Galore album Dial ‘M’ For Motherfucker includes new and exclusive interviews with Jon Spencer, Julie Cafritz, Bob Bert, Kurt Wolf and Neil Hagerty.
