“NYC’s Jon Spencer is a veteran of the alternative music world, best-known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, in addition to playing a key role in the now-defunct bands Pussy Galore and Boss Hog. Spencer still remains enthusiastic as ever with the recent release of the Blues Explosion’s 10th album, Freedom Tower: No Wave Dance Party 2015, showcasing the fun, party-starting blend of blues, rock, and funk that he creates both in the studio and throughout his eclectic DJ mixes.” – KEXP
