“The Way of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion”

http://groundcontrolmag.com/detail/1/4174/OO: Throughout your career, you’ve always been part of projects, like with the Blues Explosion of course and Boss Hog, and Heavy Trash. Have you ever considered doing a solo project? Considering your music history, I don’t even know what that would sound like.

JS: I’ve definitely thought about it, but I like to collaborate with people. It’s why I was drawn to making music, it’s to work with people. It’s not just me by myself. Maybe the closest I ever came was, I made a record with the Dickenson brothers, it was called Spencer Dickinson, I think that was around 2000. It was a spur of the moment project. I went down there with a lot of ideas and sketches for songs. There’s a lot of me on that record, and it’s an interesting record. I like to write with other people. Occasionally by myself, but mostly with other people.”
