Ep. #15: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion + catl.

A chat with Judah Bauer, Jon Spencer, and Russell Simins at Call the Office in London, ON about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion‘s adventures in the high water of Calgary and how the media can manipulate their message. Also, Toronto’s catl. talk about opening for the JSBX and someone takes my bag while I’m interviewing someone, which I just can’t handle. For more info about this episode, sign up for the Kreative Kontrol newsletter.

Ep. #7: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

One of my favourite bands ever is the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and they’ve got a few Canadian tour dates coming up soon (including Sled Island this week and Ontario shows next month). I called up Jon Spencer for a chat about what things have been like since the band started playing together again and the ebb and flow of independent culture. After a nice talk about our kids and Levon Helm, we got into it.
