Jon Spencer & The Hitmakers
Support: Sterling Roswell
FRIDAY 22ND NOVEMBER 2019
Jon Spencer (Pussy Galore, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) returns to his art-punk roots with some of his best and most experimental bandmates from over the years. The lineup includes bassist Sam Coomes of Quasi and drummer M. Sord, who backed Spencer on the fuzzed-out 2018 solo release Spencer Sings the Hits (In the Red), as well as longtime avant-rock hero Bob Bert, who drummed with Spencer in Pussy Galore after two stints with Sonic Youth. Using claw hammers for drumsticks, Bert transforms assorted detritus (a gas tank, a garbage can) into instruments that push the otherwise solidly gritty Hitmakers sound into outre territory.
With special guest support appearance from Sterling Roswell - who has been travelling the psychedelic spaceways ever since he was the teenage drummer for Spacemen 3.
