Xavier Benoit: The Man Behind The Bands

Xavier Benoit: The Man Behind The Bands“Benoit is quick to dispel rock’n’roll notions about life on the road. “I’ve worked with some bands – slackers, drug addicts, drunks – they arrive late and fuck it all up,” he says. “You need one strong person in the pack. With the Blues Explosion, for instance, they’re all strong; everybody’s reliable. The tour is like a machine.””

An interview with Xavier Benoit has recently be published by Flanders Today, visit the following links to read the article in full.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Tavastia, Helsinki: Photos / Review

https://www.facebook.com/Photo.Scarecrow/posts/754140981311293“Tavastialla Spencerin musiikkia oli mahdoton kategorisoida vedenpitävästi. Yhtye oli useimmiten saman kappaleen sisällä yhtä hyvin soulia, nykivää funkkia, raivoisaa punkkia, vinhasti potkivaa rockabillyä kuin räpättyjen lauluosuuksien aikana liki hiphopia.”

A set of 26 photos by Leif Laaksonen from The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion show at Tavastia, Helsinki, Finland on 19 July 2014 can be seen on the Photo Scarecrow facebook page and a Finnish-language review by Mikko Aaltonen can be seen on www.hs.fi.
