Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 06 / Trk 10 / What to Do / The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

If it’s energy we’re seeking, the mighty JSBX has enough to power a small country. Here’s an alternate version of one of their earlier songs, recorded live in a basement by the master of simplicity himself, Steve Albini. He manages to help turn the ragged guitar and echoed vocal up to 11, and gets Jon Spencer to hit a brief falsetto, though more in an Otis Redding style.

I love the little fakeout at the beginning, even though if you’ve ever heard any JSBX song ever in history, you know that it would never turn out to be a quiet or slow number.
