There is no one quite like Jon Spencer. An amalgam of every pure, vibrant form of Americana rock n' roll, Mr. Spencer embodies the spirit of Elvis Presley and the fire of Jerry Lee Lewis in the rhetorical guise of Tom Waits. His hypnotic voice brings Buddy Holly to the cerebral world. Roy Orbison to the dark side. All the more fitting then that his collaboration with Matt VERTA-Ray (apologies for the misspelling in the year-end review that - for reason beyond control - cannot be corrected) found its way to an esoteric art gallery on the industrial wasteland of Kent Street in western Williamsburg. Between Matt's gruff-yet-suave git skills and Jon's all-encompassing gravity, along with more than able bass and drum players, Heavy Trash is the most thrilling revival of American music. Period.
"Outside Chance":

"Crazy Pretty Baby"

Puddin' Tang's terrible name (though Puddin' remains one of the funniest sounding words in the language) does not get in the way of their garage-stomp rock. Somewhat eclectic and good fun.

The needlessly longed name Feels So Good Let's Do It suffered from persistent tech problems and that DID get in the way.

Any chance you have a clip from the show with lines like: "carry a shield, with a crest", and the incident with the broken drum?

How does something called "Sonic Parthenon" get to decide what a cool name is ?! Puddin' Tang is our name, ask us again and we'll tell you the same. Its your name too fool.
