“Even sadder, the opportunity to type Poo Poos Explosion is missed when tha’ bahloooozily bedevilled threesome JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION churn out the kind of commited show reminiscent of say, Beck at Glastonbury. Big shouting. Big guitar. Very Big balls. Can we say that at times they sound like a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs? Cheers.” – NME: Reading Festival [Review] (PRESS, UK)

“Watching a popular British act in a massive crowd was high on my to-do list but I still skipped seeing the headlining Charlatans, who I’d been missing for eight years to see Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Elastica absolutely destroy in the big tent.” – https://yerdoingreat.wordpress.com
