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!’”

“Jon Spencer has an appreciation of roots music. Whether it’s blues or rock and roll or rockabilly (even psychobilly), he somehow chaotically churns them all up and puts out an amazingly original and varying array of music. He recently played the DittyTV studio for a Concert Series premiere that airs May 1 at 8 p.m. CDT. And that same energy you see in his live performances is who Jon Spencer is. His enthusiasm and passion are contagious even if you’re just on the phone with him a thousand miles away…”

Bob Bert – I’m Just The Drummer: Out Now!

Pre-orders of Bob Bert – I’m Just The Drummer are arriving now.

Order direct from Hozac Records: https://hozacrecords.com/

or at Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0996331972?ref=myi_title_dp&fbclid=IwAR2f110XJJ1yttDQVTvN1LbVM3iyIejxAYihmytQFi6FHXRyL7FpBfcV044

Info:

“Hozac Books is proud to present our third art book, I’m Just The Drummer: the Bob Bert artist compendium of photography and interviews, establishing his irreplaceable link between the 1970s No Wave movement and contemporary noise rock. Although Bert’s immediate work is best known drumming in his wide array of musical projects he’s been involved with (such as SONIC YOUTH, PUSSY GALORE, CHROME CRANKS, LYDIA LUNCH, and many more) since the early 1980s, the focus of his book isn’t drum-centric as it is an encapsulation of the artistic world he’s developed within. It’s not a drumming instructional guide, or a critical assessment of how the drummers in bands are treated, but a 200+ page guide through Bob’s musically adventurous life, and what a ride! Starting out with his teenage love of photography and his process of capturing the underground downtown figureheads as well as the emerging unknown No Wave bands, Bob was just as much of an enthusiastic fan of music as he was a fixture in some of the most crucial music of the 1980s, 90s, and beyond. And that’s what’s really important in the long run, as his excitement for music bursts from each page, providing the springboard to his long-running life in bands on the fringe of the mainstream.

But Bob Bert wasn’t just that figure of intersectional commonality of SEVERAL pivotal bands with an edge over the last 30 years, oh no. He also has (not surprisingly) impeccable taste in music and culture, which could only sprout forth in the 1990s with an inevitable ‘zine,’ and thus, BB Gun Magazine was born. Spanning from 1995 until 2004, and covering emerging underground music, film, and outre artists sub-underground, as well as Hollywood-level impresarios, I’m Just the Drummer contains a wealth of interview excerpts from the elusive original magazines, along with his photography accompaniment.”
