Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Orange

Jon Spencer's former bands Pussy Galore and Bosshog explored the dirty side of rock n' roll, raw and unadulterated. With his new project, the Blues Explosion, he ventured to a more structured songwriting. Though it's nowhere near a blues band as the name tries to imply but it's more akin with classic rock.

Orange reminded me of Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced? (oh I'm going to be hanged by Hendrix freaks on this one!), but with lesser guitar vituosity! Keith Morris even called them The Jon Spencer Experience in the Circle Jerks' album Oddities...

Give this shit a try because in my opinion this is their best work.

Shout out to Nonoy on this one!

I must agree that this is their best work and not very bluesy at all...but at the same time if Jon Spencer is half as cool in life as he sounds on this album, he call his band anything he damn well pleases! Thanks!!

I've been meaning hear this for ages. I saw John Spencer Blues Explosion play on a beach for free in Taiwan. Andrew W.K., The Dirty Three and the 5,6,7,8's also played. Thanks for this.
