The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion set at the Jeff Magnum-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties event at Butlins, Minehead, Somerset, UK on 9 March 2012.

Originally scheduled for 2 – 4 December 2011 but RESCHEDULED for 9 – 11 March 2012.

“Performance of the night though, by some distance, came from The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Machine-gunning out their own brand of the great American song-book for the last 20 years, it’s some wonder they have all the energy, enthusiasm and raw power still at their disposal. But have it they do, and by the bucket-load, keeping us rapt and playing on well after two o’clock in the morning. Judah Bauer, Russell Simins, Jon Spencer; you absolutely OWNED ATP!” – thedoublenegative
