Boss Hog – Club Helsinki, Hudson: Photos / Review

“Thirty-odd years after her debut Martinez remains a riveting stage presence, and like Iggy Pop she simply abhors any separation between band and audience. When Boss Hog’s opening number “Devious Motherfucker” failed to fill the dancefloor directly in front of the stage, Martinez jumped offstage and crossed the gulf herself, getting in the face of those of us in the first row while she sang “Winn Coma.” – Steven Stock

“…escupiendo esa suerte de: punk, funk y blues.”

“La base rítmica, liderada por la excelente baterista –que además canta– Hollis Queens, es endemoniada y los arreglos de teclado de Mickey Finn son inmejorables.” – Muzikalia

” ¿Actitud? Toda la esperable y más.”

“Las expectativas eran altas para el grueso de los presentes, que siguen ubicando el proyecto de Spencer y Cristina en ese compartimento íntimo en el que uno guarda el relicario del rock creíble que sobrevive por el mundo. ¿Actitud? Toda la esperable y más. La apertura, con la diva extremeño-cubana cantando ‘Disgrace’ entre el público, resultó una declaración de principios: españolitos, venimos a enseñaros un par de cosas sobre rock and roll.”

Posted in Boss Hog, Live, news Comments Off on Boss Hog – NEW SHOWS: US / Spain

“Noise-rock royalty moves to Kingston”

“Attempting to encapsulate Boss Hog’s style, Jonathan Ringen of The New York Times last year came up with, “Mr. Spencer and his various collaborators channeled rockabilly ghosts and punk weirdness into a crackling electric riff-heavy sound.” When it comes to description, I favor a Wikipedia riff of the band’s 1995 debut on a major label: “The sleazy glam-punk sound of abrasive buzzsaw guitar and part-sneering, part-shouted vocals continued largely unabated,” the reviewer writes. “Fans and critics ate it up like pancakes on Christmas morning.” Also worthy of mention is reviewer David Sprague’s pithy evaluation of Boss Hog as evolving from a conceptual exercise in art-rock carnality into a legit, earthy dirt-blues band.”

HudsonValleyOne.com have just published an interview and preview article for the Boss Hog show at Helsinki Hudson on 9 June 2018.

S-E-R-V-I-C-E – LUNA Music, Indianapolis, IN

“5:15 p.m.: Birdsong sticks around after the White Moms’ set to play guitar, keyboards and drums in Service, a scorched-earth beast with a rock ‘n’ reputation that proceeds it. Jilly Weiss previously sang in We Are Hex, bass player John Zeps has played in perhaps dozens of Indianapolis bands and drummer Russell Simins now lives in Indiana after making his name as a member of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. The fifth member of Service appears to be its glue: guitarist Mitch Geisinger. His economical style is all killer and no filler, which adds a sledgehammer to Simins’ dirty-blues tendencies. Meanwhile, Weiss captivates every onlooker thanks to her metal head-banging, Roger Daltrey mic-cord tricks and Elvis-worthy arm thrusts. Lyrically, she shows a provocative side with, “I don’t know what to do with my body; I’m so glad that you do.”” – IndyStar.com

“when Jilly steps into the ring—ain’t no playing’.” – Luna Music
