“But there are tunes, too – pretty things like Horizon, which pays tribute to her family, while Marshall simultaneously eyes the exit; Jim White is the drummer here (he played on Moon Pix); Judah Bauer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, fellow travellers from Cat Power’s New York days, is on guitar.”
According to The Guardian Judah Bauer appears on the track ‘Horizon’ on the new Cat Power album ‘Wanderer’.
“In Jon Spencer’s debut solo album, Spencer Sings The Hits, fans will find a genuine and true revelation about both the singer and his music.
…And because it can so easily be presumed that Spencer Sings The Hits is a pure expression of the artist’s work, listeners will finally feel as though they truly know and understand the artist after they’ve run front-to-back with the album.” – Bill Adams / Ground Control Magazine
“Welcome back on Velvet Sheep fanzine to the nicest guy in rock, drummer for Pussy Galore, Sonic Youth, Chrome Cranks and currently playing on tour with Lydia Lunch’s Retrovirus and with a trash can kit for Jon Spencer in support of his debut solo record “Spencer Plays The Hits!” Not to mention upcoming music with pals Kid Congo Powers and Mick Collins on In The Red (Wolfmanhattan Project) and new photo book I’m Just The Drummer” (HoZac Books). The brilliant Bob Bert chooses a “song for ewe” by the MC5!” – Velvet Sheep
“He was in 80s underground pop outfit The Donner Party. He’s half of the much vaunted Quasi (with Sleater-Kinney’s Janet Weiss), former bassist in Elliott Smith’s old man Heatmiser the man behind great pared back garage rock album “Bugger Me” complete with “Conny” a 60s rhythm box and he’s now playing on upcoming Jon Spencer solo album on In The Red Records – “Spencer Sings The Hits”(out on 2nd November). Thanks for popping back to Velvet Sheep zine, the twisted skills and easy grace of the man that can – Sam Coomes!” – Velvet Sheep
“Spencer says: “I can’t wait to get over and play for everyone. I will be joined by Bob Bert, Sam Coomes and M. Sord – we will be kicking out all of the new long-player Spencer Sings The Hits! as well as some choice cuts from Pussy Galore, The Blues Explosion, Heavy Trash, and maybe even a super-secret cover-song or two.
“We just did a stint in the States with the Melvins so I know from experience that these will be some dynamite nights of rock, roll, riot, and rumble.”” – LouderSound.com
