Jon Spencer

When raunchy garage area rockers Pussy Galore called it quits in 1990, vocalist/guitarist Jon Spencer founded the Blues Explosion, alongside guitarist Judah Bauer and drummer Russell Simins. Burning Spencer’s Elvis-on-acid yelp with much dosage of punk, funk, and blues, the music group first garnered interest using its 1993 outing, Extra Width. It cemented its popularity as a powerful and playful indie rock and roll force on the next albums Orange and today I Got Get worried. The bass-less blues stomp from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion would continue to influence various other early 21st-century low-end-lacking works like the Light Stripes as well as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Within the 2000s, Spencer teamed up with Matt Verta-Ray to be Heavy Garbage and collaborated with Solex and Cristina Martinez for the 2010 record Amsterdam Throwdown Ruler Street Showdown!
