“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!’”
