Blues Explosion - NME: Crunchy [Review] (PRESS, UK)
Short review of Crunchy by Blues Explosion from the NME.
“”Sock it to me!” yaps Jon Spencer in this ludicrously libidinous exercise in good-time bar-room boogie, stuffed to the gills with Hammond organs and honky-tonk joannas and packing the kind of irresistible groove that would shoot straight to the number one for 14 years in any right-thinking world. Like Nick Cave, Spencer has been horing his thang for so long now that he can do it without any apparent effort, and effortless pop is always the best kind.
