If there's been a constant in Jon Spencer's 30-year journey from garage-punk attitude monster to Baby Driver car-chase choreographer, it's been his fascination with trash. For Spencer, disposability is the ultimate marker of authenticity. He's built his musical empire from pop-culture detritus too ….
Jon Spencer has been making records with his various projects since 1985, and most anyone familiar with his body of work would say that 2018's Spencer Sings the Hits sure sounds like a Jon Spencer album. The only thing curious about that would be that this marks the first time Spencer has released a solo project. Spencer has always displayed a strong personal style, whether in the noise rock assault of Pussy Galore, the hard wailing of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the lascivious R&B stomp of Boss Hog, or the roots-conscious swagger of Heavy Trash.
