“To start off with Spencer barely says a word to the crowd, instead it is just a consistent and constant barrage of noise. Tracks blending almost seamlessly from one to the next, the wail of his guitar the sharpness of Bob Bert’s percussion, Sam Coombes bright synths all the while M Sord’s pounding backbeat provides the ecstatic backing for everyone else to shine.”

“Tonight Jon Spencer and The Hitmakers are well and truly on fire, shouts and screams willing them back to the stage ring out throughout the entire venue, alas they do not return leaving an already fulfilled crowd begging for more!” – Lee Hammond /
