SPENCER SINGS THE HITS!
The first-ever solo record from Jon Spencer, a milestone in a legendary career that has spanned three decades of brain-splattering innovation, groovy-ghoulie noise, and swank-as-fuck salvation!
Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground-rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red-hot hits, each more powerful than the last!
This is Garage Punk for Now People, weaponized with sci-fi skronk and industrial attitude, calibrated for the Revolution, a Molotov cocktail of sound guaranteed to destroy any post-modern hangover!
JON SPENCER, THE BLUES EXPLOSION MAN who put the BELLBOTTOMS on BABY DRIVER! The Top Cat who spread the Secret Sauce in BOSS HOG! The Rockabilly Right-Hook from Heavyweight Outlaws HEAVY TRASH! The Swank-Fucking Master of PUSSY GALORE is back, bringing the hits to Your Town USA!
Says Spencer: “This is the truth serum the world has been craving, the beginning of a new rock’n’roll rebellion that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice!”
