“Post-punk avant-scuzz-rock classicist Jon Spencer, rocking shades and dressed head to toe in black, was a dead ringer for 1966 Lou, capping a perfect “Venus in Furs” by laying his guitar on the stage, removing his black leather belt, and flogging it while the amps howled. “That’s how it’s done,” said MC and producer Don Fleming glowingly.” – Rolling Stone
