“Ladies and gentlemen right now I’ve got to tell you about… The fabulous, the most groovy… “

Get ready for the musical hysteria as The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion bring their
fuzzed-up freaked-out live show back to Australia for Golden Plains 2013 plus a
handful of headline shows across the country. Last here in January 2011 following a
reissue campaign that saw much of their unavailable catalogue brought to light once
more, JSBX blew the roof off venues in Australia and New Zealand, playing their
classic album Orange in it’s entirety and selling out shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

“The band burn through Orange and into the red - into the white-hot speed-driven
rock, a full 90 minutes of sure-shot raw powered amps-to-11-sleaze.” Inpress

This time they bring with them a new album, Meat + Bone - their first in 8 years. 12
feverish tracks, burning with a renewed intensity and sense of self - this is Blues
Explosion at their finest, a mature album that solidifies JSBX as the originators
and the best. It hits the ground running with first single Black Mold, swaggers
boldly through album highlight Bag Of Bones, while Danger is a pure punk-thrash
attack pushed to it’s limits by Simmins’ pounding rhythms. 

This is dangerous, raw,
rock n’ roll - as good as it gets; the real deal - the kind of music that rips into
your soul and makes you want to howl at the moon. Check out the addictively
disturbing new clip for Black Mould here -

Joining them across the country will be San Francisco’s Moon Duo. Formed in 2009 by
Wooden Shijps guitarist Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo’s fuse the
futuristic pylon hum and transistor reverb of Suicide or Silver Apples with the
heat-haze fuzz of American rock ‘n’ roll to create tracks of blistering, 12-cylinder
space rock.  You can view the Sleepwalker video, with some very special cameos from
a couple of members of King Khan and The Shrines here

JSBX are back baby and they’ve got something to tell you. Prepare to stand up and
testify - THE BLUES IS STILL #1!!

Tickets are on sale November 16^th through
Meat + Bone is available now through FUSE.
