Meat And Bone is the first studio album by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosionin eight years. This is straight-up, Grade A Blues Explosion, producedand mixed by Mr. Spencer himself, with no special guests. Meat And Boneis 12 prime cuts of raw rock 'n' roll, recorded on Sly Stone's "Riot" Flickinger console at the legendary Key Club Recording Studio in Benton Harbor, MI, amd mixed in the jungles of New York City. Judah Bauer, Russell Simins and Jon Spencer continue to blow minds with their fusillade of energy and rhythm, and have once again proven that the Blues is #1!The new album comes on the heels of the meticulous and loving 2010 reissues of the band’s Matadoralbums, including the classics 'Extra Width', 'Orange', and 'Now I Got Worry.' (And more recently, the re-release of the long out-of-print seminal Pussy Galore catalog.) It was amid this period of looking back, that Spencer, Simins and Bauer began the process of moving forward.
Says Jon Spencer: "Westill have that psychic glue that allows us to create music together.Over the course of a year touring and writing new songs and recording,we rediscovered our shared history as a band. We circled the wagons, and went back to our roots. In a way this is almost like another first album." Onstage and in the studio, Jon Spencer has destroyed and rebuilt Americanroots music with such ferocity and wild abandon, that it's hard tobelieve there is anything left. It's been twenty years since TheJon Spencer Blues Explosion first pressed 'record', and twenty yearssince Spencer and his A-Team of sonic terrorists tore up the indie-rocklandscape with fever and a visceral, untouchable vision of rock'n'rollthat did for a new wave of blues-punk primitivists what Helen of Troy'sface did for the armada.Butmake no mistake: Jon Spencer was there first. He is the original. Itwas his sanctified outbursts and blues-bending riffs that began thenew-fangled roots rock revolution and spawned countless imitators. WithPussy Galore, he gargled with the Stones and Stooges and wrestled withindustrial noise and fuzzed-out fucked-up sixties garage crud…withBlues Explosion, he drove furiously into the future with incendiaryspirit built from courage, audacity, and revolt. Nothing has been thesame since.Meat And Bone track listing:
