Thunder on Thursday II

Todays thunder on thursday is for the American alternative rock trio the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
For those who don't know the JSBX here's some wiki info: They are formed in 1991 and based out of New York City, New York. The band consists of Judah Bauer on guitar, backing vocals, harmonica and occasional lead vocals, Russell Simins on drums and Jon Spencer on vocals, guitar and theremin. Their musical style is largely rooted in Rock and roll although it draws influences from punk, blues, garage, rockabilly, soul, noise rock, rhythm and blues and rap. They have released seven official studio albums, collaborative records with Dub Narcotic Sound System and R.L. Burnside as well as numerous singles, out-take albums, compilations, remix albums and, in 2010, a series of expanded reissues. Throughout the course of their career this experimental sound and occasionally unconventional recording techniques has allowed the band to work with a number of diverse artists including Elliott Smith, Beck, Solomon Burke, Steve Albini, Martina Topley-Bird and Ad Rock of the Beastie Boys. Downside of the long existance of this group is their enormous inheritance. You already heard Bellbottoms, what about Wail from their great Orange(1994) album(Video directed by Weird Al by the way) Their latest album Meat & Bone is a killer, released a week ago (fresssshhhhh!!!!), So here's the video of the opening track Black Mold directed by the Belgium director photographer Toon Aerts Horribly funny! And here you can listen to 5 tracks of Meat and Bone
