“Watching a popular British act in a massive crowd was high on my to-do list but I still skipped seeing the headlining Charlatans, who I’d been missing for eight years to see Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Elastica absolutely destroy in the big tent.” –

2005: Heavy Trash – Postbahnhof, Berlin, Germany
w/ The Tremolo Beer Gut and Powersolo

“Umjesto ‘Blues Explosion!’ urlika Jon Spencer je vikao ‘Heavy Trash ladies and gentlemen! Heavy Trash!’ i nije nedostajalo skakanja po pozornici, bacanja na pod, naginjanja u publiku, rušenja stvari i općenito svega onoga zbog čega je Jon Spencer – Jon Spencer. Ali dojam je ipak bio drugačiji. Nekako se činio veselijim. A tek novi plesni pokreti… Elvis je mala beba naspram njega! S Blues Explosion je ipak malo mračnija atmosfera.” – Ana (
