BSTB Presents: Heavy Trash @ Sala Rossa

Posted by Ralph / April 21, 2010

20100422-heavytrash.jpgJon Spencer is one in a million. He's also a man who'd need a million index markers to classify his music.

Indeed, Spencer grew up listening to Devo and The Residents, studied semantics and studio art at Brown University, made subversive experiemental films that next to no one has seen, dropped out, formed garage-noise bassless fourtet Pussy Galore (think of Neubauten covering gut-wrenching versions of Back from the Grave classics), toured and toured, played for a short time with The Honeymoon Killers (the US band), formed Boss Hog with his wife Cristina Martinez, toured and toured, formed The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, toured and toured and was even featured on a French variety show (for one night...) that included Jackie Chan, then the JSBX went on hiatus, formed Heavy Trash with Matt Verta-Ray, toured toured and the rest is history.

I should probably stop here, because anyone who has seen the man live knows that his music is all about 'the live experience'. Therefore, head down to Sala tomorrow night and pepper your youth with some valuable stories to tell your children on the day you'll sermon them on the vacuousness of modern life.
