|NME review of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion single Talk About The Blues from Acme.|
“Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Talk About The Blues (Mute)
The tale of this is as follows. Jon Spencer talks about the blues. In fact, he talks about it a hell of a lot. Primarily to journalists, y’know Rolling Stone and the like, people just too square to realise that Jon Spencer, he don’t actually play no blues – he plays rock’n’roll! That’s what you call ‘irony’. Baybeh.
A fab record, sold unrepentantly on the fact that the video features Winona Ryder and another two actors as the other two BXers. Next week: Kathy Burke as Shaun Ryder in the ‘Cool As Nuts’ ’99 mix of ‘Fat Lady Wrestlers’.”
