NOTES:
Ticket for The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion show at London Astoria with Doo Rag and R. L. Burnside. This was part of the Now I Got Worry tour with promotional postcards/stickers given out on the night.

Doo Rag is incorrectly written ‘Doorang’.

“The emotional climax of this massively entertaining show – the aptly-titled Sticky – finds him down on his knees in the midst of a deep soul anxiety attack.” – Ben Thompson / Mojo

“…Spencer led the band through a series of “encores” climaxing with a raucous Chicken Dog and a magnificently wired version of Dang, with Bauer on harmonica coaxing a noise like a freight train from hell.” – David Sinclair
