SLEEVE NOTES:
“Jon Spencer, heart-attack front man of the Blues Explosion and shudder-and-shake specialist of rockabilly wildmen Heavy Trash, takes on Luther and Cody Dickinson, masterminds of the North Mississippi All-Stars, in a no-holds-barred- Mississippi mud fight, and the result is a rock’n’roll rumble and a darker shade of soul!!!

The resulting CD, The Man Who Lives For Love is a torrid mess of trouble, twang, and twisted blues.

“I was a little messed up in the head anyway,” confesses Spencer, telling the tale of this backwoods electric throw-down. Recorded with producer, wizard, and legendary Memphis musician Jim Dickinson at his Zebra Ranch. “It was freezing cold. It was tough, just a barn with a space heater. We got that freak element. We got the groovy hate vibe. We got weird.”

Can you handle the truth? Get tough and enjoy yourself. Spencer/Dickinson.”
