Jon Spencer will be live in-store at Rough Trade East to perform tracks from his new album, 'Spencer Sings The Hits', released 2nd November on In The Red.

Jon Spencer, The Blues Explosion Man who put the Bellbottoms on Baby Driver! The Top Cat who spread the Secret Sauce in Boss Hog! The Rockabilly Right-Hook from Heavyweight Outlaws Heavy Trash! The Swank-Fucking Master of Pussy Galore! Jon Spencer is back! Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground-rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red-hot hits, each more powerful than the last!

This is Garage Punk for Now People! A wizard’s brew of rhythm and blues and subversive dance grooves, weaponized with sci-fi skronk and industrial attitude, calibrated for the Revolution, a Molotov cocktail of sound guaranteed to destroy any post-modern hangover!

Pulsing with energy, clanging with excitement, and dripping with radioactive soul and raw emotion, Jon Spencer opens up his heart like never before, exploring man’s modern condition with caustic guitars and outerworld crooning, asking and answering the musical question, “Is it possible to torch the cut-throat world of fake news and pre-fab, plastic-coated teen rebellion with the power of rock’n’roll?” The Answer is YES!.

Spencer Sings the Hits! This is the truth serum America has been craving, the beginning of a rock’n’roll rebellion that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice! Featuring the talents of Sam Coomes (Quasi, Heatmeiser) and M. Sord (M. Sord).
