Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
As I've mentioned before Mr. Spencer rocks and wails like no one's business, belting out some of the rawest, rudest blues-infused rock this side of, well, most places. Although Mr. Spencer and the boys have been known to jam with veteran blues dude R.L. Burnside, when they're off by themselves, they don't tend to give your typical blues offering - this is the blues stripped down to its base elements and literally exploded from there. Among other things, Spencer appears to have the habit of yelping out 'Blues Explosion!' just about every five minutes or so, for no apparent reason. And then there's the part about his needing to have his mouth washed out with soap. Assume that he's about as savory as a dock worker's armpit, but has just about as twice as much soul as the average white guy from NYC can have, and you've got a pretty good image.
