ARTICLE TEXT:
“Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Wall
(Mute)

Rasping, country-tinged guitar pop with Spencer’s voice sounding even more Elvis-like than usual. Harry displays slightly more attention than has become the norm.

Harry: He’s imitating The King! You can’t do that. There’s only one Elvis (displays his Elvis belt buckle proudly). The guy who’s singing – he sounds like one of those Chinese waiters who do Elvis impersonations between second course and dessert. I like, though. It’s got a lot of energy, but I’d still rather play an Elvis original. You can’t beat the real thing, can you, eh? I should know, I’m in a three-man Beatles tribute band.”
JSBE’s single, ‘Wail’, is out now on Mute ”
