Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (sometimes abbreviated JSBX) is a New York based band, made up of members Jon Spencer (vocals, guitar), Judah Bauer (guitar, vocals) and Russell Simins (drums). Their unique 'Explosion' sound is a raw and loud one, combining elements of noise-rock, rock and roll, blues, soul, funk, rockabilly and hip hop, with an occasional theremin solo thrown in.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (sometimes abbreviated JSBX) is a New York based band, made up of members Jon Spencer (vocals, guitar), Judah Bauer (guitar, vocals) and Russell Simins (drums). Their unique 'Explosion' sound is a raw and loud one, combining elements of noise-rock, rock and roll, blues, soul, funk, rockabilly and hip hop, with an occasional theremin solo thrown in. Originally from Hanover, New Hampshire, Jon Spencer (born John) moved to Washington, DC where he fronted the band Pussy Galore. After that band's breakup, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion formed in 1990 in New York City. Members played in bands including The Honeymoon Killers, Crowbar Massage, and Boss Hog prior to the formation of the Blues Explosion. They signed to Matador Records shortly after and have gathered a large cult following. While on tour in July 1999, the band's tour van was broken into in Vancouver, Canada. A large amount of gear, including several microphones, amps, compressors, and other equipment, as well as Spencer's original 1962 Moog Vanguard theremin, was stolen. None of the gear was ever recovered. With the release of Damage in 2004, the band changed their name simply to Blues Explosion. « hide
