The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion: Blast Rites

Steven Wells, New Musical Express, 17 October 1998

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. They're a blues band, right? Wrong! They're the living, breathing embodiment of fizzing rock'n'roll. And soul. AND blues. And if you don't believe us, just listen to their new album, Acme. Then get down on your knees and kiss their asses. Big bang theory: Steven Wells
