The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion: Now I Got Worry (Matador)

Chuck Eddy, L.A. Weekly, 24 October 1996

'CAN'T STOP', a kitschy sort of Booker T and the MGs-style green-onion-and-mushroom-salad keyboard excursion on former Pussy Galore pottymouth Jon Spencer's latest Blues Explosion album, Now I Got Worry, has a break where Jon tries to initiate a communal reaction from the "audience" (who are nowhere to be found) "I'd like everybody to stand up, and throw their hands in the air, and KISS MY ASS" Ba-dum-bum.
