Since the Blues Explosion -- who, as of this record, have officially dropped the "Jon Spencer" prefix from their name (the better to illustrate that they are a genuine band) -- have always been about the sound, power, and feel, not the song, it only makes sense that they work with a cornucopia of producers, mixers, and guest musicians on their seventh album, Damage.

It had loads of interesting sounds, but it didn't hold together.
