The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion Now I Got Worry on LP
It's been nearly twenty five years since The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion first pressed record and Spencer and his A-Team of sonic terrorists (Judah Bauer/guitar and Russell Simins/drums) tore up the indie-rock landscape with fever and a visceral, untouchable vision of rock 'n' roll. Taking cues from rock, punk, R&B, garage, hardcore, and hip hop idioms, while transcending the limitations of each, the Blues Explosion created a new sound as deft and bold and life-affirming as the Meters, the Magic Band, or the Birthday Party. Now I Got Worry is the revered outfit's fiery 1996 studio release. Produced by Jim Water, the relentless and muscular 16-track set does as good a job as any in capturing the group's blazing live sound. Featuring a guest appearance by Rufus Thomas and the explosive singles "2Kindsa Love" and "Wail."
