The incredible, indelible Jon Spencer (Blues Explosion, Boss Hog, Pussy Galore, Heavy Trash, etc.) is back with the incendiary HITmakers—and with his HOTTEST record yet!
Spencer Gets It Lit is classic Jon Spencer taken to the extremis—electro-boogie, constructivist art pop, a psychedelic swamp of industrial sleaze and futurist elegance. It is an epic master work of freak beat from the world’s weirdest garage. Across brain-boggling layers of fury, fuzz guitar, and a crash-bang battery of phaser blasts, photon torpedoes, and otherworldly zounds, he frantically spits, croons, rhapsodizes, and seduces. Spencer Gets It Lit is his most complex and groovy record in years, a dark, danceable odyssey—both a studied take-down of the early 21st century, and a celebration of the place were electricity meets the mind.
Says Spencer, “Send out the Hit Signal! This is the most uncompromising album I’ve ever made!”
THIS JUST IN! Taking over drum duties for the HITmakers on their upcoming spring tour will be superstar of skins Janet Weiss of Sleater-Kinney, Quasi, Wild Flag, The Jicks, Slang, etc. etc.!
Wait… What’s that? There’s more?
Every show will be opened by a full set from Janet and HITmaker Sam Coomes’ championship tag-team, Quasi!
