After the demise of his groovy hate-fuck band Pussy Galore, Jon Spencer formed the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and has continually proven himself the most exciting and innovative performer in rock ‘n’ roll. On stage and in the studio he has destroyed and rebuilt American roots music with such abandon it is hard to believe that there is anything left. While the Blues Explosion is on a much-deserved hiatus, Jon has found time to cook up adult-size doses of psychotic rootsabilly rhythm ‘n’ noise with his pal Matt Vera-Ray and their stomping roll ‘n’ rock combo, Heavy Trash.”
