New album FREEDOM TOWER No Wave Dance Party 2015 out now!
The Blues Explosion continues to astound, amaze... and annihilate! No time for a tan! No time for lolligagging by the lake, or mellowing out in the mountains! For these cats there is no pool, no beach, no joy-riding the Jitney to the Hamptons, just the sweat of the Blues Explosion! They've been halfway to hell, and the job still ain't done! There are still entire nations hungry for a taste of the sweet, bad-ass freedom of the Blues Explosion! But fret not — The boys with all da noise are about to board a jumbo jet and blast off for the other side of the world.... The Blues is No. 1 in New Zealand! In Australia!! Japan!!! The Blues Explosion Freedom Tour cannot be stopped!!!! You have been warned!!!!!

The blues-punk power trio Jon Spencer Blues Explosion never disperse from the scene for long, and they regrouped earlier this year for their 10th album Freedom Tower – No Wave Dance Party 2015. These rock veterans know how to embody the grimy chaos and glory days of old-school New York, and their latest video, directed by Andrew Hooper, is no exception. “The Ballad Of Joe Buck” sets a fiery two-minute track to a grainy, black-and-white rock n’ roll montage, jumping through snippets of a negative-filmed dumpster diver sporting a vintage movie camera for a head. A mysterious tagger sprays JSBX graffiti, while the band carries out what they do best on stage. -- Stereogum
