Jon Spencer Blues Explosion bring back the love
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is back with a brand new album and Australian tour in August 2015. “Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015” is the album name and reputed to be a product of spontaneity.
Rehearsed and polished in a string of secret gigs and unannounced opening slots in New York City theatres, hotel bars, and dives (often under assumed names), and recorded at the legendary Daptone House Of Soul in Bushwick, “Freedom Tower” is described as “a document of New York City, a chronicle of grit and terror and love!”
In recent times JSBX has toured Australia appearing at the Golden Plains Festival, Sydney Festival, Hobart's MOFO and on select double-bills with fellow noise addicts Dinosaur Jr.
They return this time for a headline appearance at Supersense - Melbourne's newest cultural event - also featuring John Cale, Lydia Lunch, Mark Ribot, Chris Abrahams (The Necks), HTRK and more. Elsewhere, JSBX will lift the roof of venues in New Zealand, Brisbane, Sydney, Hobart and Perth with Queensland gutter-punks HITS joining the circus for shows in Brisbane and Sydney.
