Summary"Meat and Bone" is the first studio album by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (Judah Bauer, Russell Simins and Jon Spencer) in eight years... and it's a blistering return to form. The album was recorded on Sly Stone's "Riot" Flickinger console at the legendary Key Club Recording Studio in Benton Harbor, MI, mad mixed in the jungles of New York City.
The new album comes on the heels of the meticulous and loving 2010 reissues of the band's Matador albums, including the classics 'Extra Width', 'Orange', and 'Now I Got Worry', and the long out-of-print seminal Pussy Galore catalog. It was amid this period of looking back, that Spencer, Simins and Bauer began the process of moving forward.
Says Spencer: "Over the course of a year touring and writing new songs and recording, we rediscovered our shared history as a band. We circled the wagons, and went back to our roots. In a way this is almost like another first album."
