Jon Spencer & The HITmakers – La Maroquinerie, Paris: Review / Photos

“Sur scène le groupe est une machine de guerre, et l’animal Spencer hurle, feule, bave, mange son micro, tout en gardant sa veste et une classe de tous les instants : un prodige je vous dit !”

Jon Spencer & The HITmakers – La Maroquinerie, Paris, France (17 May 2019)

Jon Spencer & The HITmakers – La Poundriere, Belfort: Photos / Review

“Avec Spencer, c’est désormais un enfer sonore et glacial – les lumières bleues plantent le décor – qui s’ouvre devant la foule belfortaine. Le dandy de 55 ans est là avec sa nouvelle horde, ses HITmakers! Parmi ces quatre cavaliers de l’apocalypse, il y a M. Sord derrière ses fûts qui martèle généreusement ses cymbales et plaque des rythmes épurés. Dans son entreprise, il est rejoint par Bob Bert (ex-Sonic Youth). Après avoir enfilé des gants de travail (!), l’homme empoigne deux marteaux de charpentier qu’il abat ponctuellement sur un réservoir de camion, un ressort moteur, des poubelles galvanisées, … Métal hurlant dans la petite salle voutée!”

Top 5 Onstage Freakouts feat. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion​

Top 5 Onstage Freakouts feat. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion​ live on Recovery (1997):

https://www.monsterchildren.com/89084/top-5-onstage-freak-outs/

“This performance by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on ABC’s Recovery is insane for two reasons: one, watch the video; two, I saw them getting drunk at Melbourne’s Prince of Wales Hotel the night before. When I left the bar, it was 2 AM, and they were still holding court. Then, when I turned on the TV at 10 AM the next morning, they were destroying the Recovery set. If you never caught The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, let me send you some flowers and a ham. You haven’t been to a rock show until you’ve seen these psychopaths in full-flight. Incidentally, I first saw them support Beck on his ‘Loser’ tour a few years earlier. I was at the show for Beck, but once the Blues Explosion were done, almost half the audience (who had never even heard of JSBX) were like, ‘Fuck Beck–let’s go to the front bar and talk about what we just saw!’”
