Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – The Record Bar, Kansas City: Review / Photos“The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion are, without any inkling of doubt, the most intense band I have ever seen live. Easily, bar none, they are The Intensity Champions of the Universe. Spencer is a wild man and natural showman; pouring out his demons on the stage like Jerry Lee, talking to the crowd in tone, vigor and passion befitting a Southern preacher at a fire and brimstone tent revival. He jumped around the stage like a man possessed, stopping just short of howling at the moon as he played “Get Your Pants Off” from last year’s exceptional Meat + Bone.” –
