New Jon Spencer video: Junk Man

Video: Jon Spencer & the HITmakers – “JUNK MAN”

Directed by Andrew Hooper. From Spencer Gets It Lit, out April 1.

This is great. Jon Spencer trades in his theremin from the Blues Explosion days for a tasty Farfisa and the results are better than anybody could possibly hope for in 2022. If you’ve been reacting to the untimely death of King Louie Banskton by digging back into the discography of the Royal Pendletons, then this new Spencer jam will fit right in on your garage punk playlist, proving once and for all that young people don’t have a monopoly on snotty rock and roll.

The new album was recorded down at Key Club in Benton Harbor last summer with a group of Hitmakers that included Quasi’s Sam Coomes on keys and Kalamazoo homeboy M. Sord on drums. But when they hit the road this spring with Quasi, the unstoppable Janet Weiss will be handling drum duties for both bands. She and Coomes are going to be getting a workout, so if you make it out to one of these shows, be sure to buy them a drink between sets!
