Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Discografia Selectiva

“Extra Width” (1993 Matador)
“Extra Width” é a analogia aural de um momento flamejante – uma mistura de “tequila”, “Budweiser” e “speed”- excepto a paranóia e náusea resultantes.
Unidos pelo desejo de “fazer algo realmente louco”, Jon Spencer, Judah Bauer e Russell Simins (ex-Honeymoon Killers) estão tão versados no papel de uns verdadeiros mestres do “blues”, como estão no de teóricos da deconstrução.
No seu mundo Son House “jams” com os Gang of Four, Thurston Moore toca com os Million Dollar Quartet, e uma desordem áudio é talhada. Em estúdio, Spencer e companhia tocam com as camadas visíveis, os níveis sonoros no máximo e com o bom senso de saberem que o “real blues” não é um produto rarefeito para os fãs de Robert Cray. Os The Blues Explosion começavam a deixar marcas indeléveis na música “rock”.

“Orange” (1994 Matador)
Um grande passo em frente em relação a “Extra Width” – um motim rítmico que confunde e perturba. A prontidão de misturar as coisas de Spencer – principalmente o Theremin, com as influências Stax e “P-Funk” - é inspirador.
Treze exuberantes e empolgantes canções de irresistível e vibrantemente ruidosa energia.
Existe mais do que uma forma de aproximação à música dos JSBX. Primeiro como uma jubilosa continuação do caminho de “blues’n’roll” de Captain Beefheart – tal como este fez com Howlin’ Wolf, Spencer faz o mesmo para Hound Dog Taylor (a fonte original da Blues Explosion – 2 guitarras, bateria e sem baixo). Segundo, como um alegre despojamento do niilismo da “No Wave” nova iorquina, da qual os Pussy Galore eram os enteados não desejados. Convém relembrar que os Pussy Galore fizeram uma bizarra versão integral de “Exile On Main Street” dos Rolling Stones.

“ACME” (1998 Matador)
Embora seja o resultado de mais de seis meses de gravações em colaboração com cerca de uma dúzia de produtores, o quinto disco da Jon Spencer Blues Explosion parece mais o resultado uma gravação ao vivo.
A restrição aqui é a chave, quando Spencer, o guitarrista Judah Bauer (que toca aqui muito mais baixo do que fazia no passado) e especialmente o baterista Russell Simins afinam o tipo de “soul” dos anos 60, que o “punk” era muito orgulhosamente indisciplinado para imitar.
“ACME” marca o regresso da JSBX aos ritmos uniformes – mais ao estilo de “Orange” (1994) do que do saltitante “Now I Got Worry” (1996) – mas agora, em vez de libertas, as batidas tribais de Simins estão em satisfeito conflito com o unicamente não refinado sentido melódico de Spencer e actuam perfeitamente.
Se canções como “Magical Colors” e “Do You Wanna Get Heavy?” mergulham em novos padrões rítmicos, já “Blue Green Olga” e “Torture” são suficientemente suaves, que a característica rudeza de Spencer, ao inicio parece ausente.

“Damage” (2004 Mute)
Podemos bem dizer: “If ain’t broke, why fix it?”, os The Blues Explosion parecem melhorar com o passar dos anos. E o facto de abandonarem o Jon Spencer do nome da banda parece o único sério desvio do descarnado e irregular “blues-punk”, mas bem característico, que vêem a produzir ao longo dos últimos anos.
Desta vez são ajudados por convidados como DJ Shadow ou David Holmes, que fundem as arrogantes, mas seguras guitarras com o carácter do “hip hop” e ainda captam o frenético e louco gorgolhar de Jon Spencer.
Desde o lento e taciturno “Spoiled”, com a presença de Martina Topley-Bird, passando pelo discurso politico de ” Hot Gossip” (com a presença de Chuck D dos Public Enemy) , pelo impetuoso “pop” de “Crunchy”, pelo “space-rock” de “You Been My Baby”, até à paranóica “Rattling”, é só fúria, com os ritmos triturantes a impelirem este besta através do “rock’n’roll”, “white soul”, “southern rock”, e muito mais “natural blues” do que qualquer disco de Moby.

If you have been carrying out some research into [url=http://cungmuahotdeal.com/thoi-trang.html]Thoi trang nam[/url], then you may possess a decent idea of what is well-known. The thing about so much of this is there are conditions that will have an influence on what you can expect to use. You can find decent sites to read that you can depend on, however not all you need is necessarily in one place. It is not always safe to assume you have completely all the details and can stop reading and studying. Assembling the big picture for any subject is often not easy or fast with online research. We have discovered the following about this specific subject, and we want to expand on it and give some added understanding.

The relative complexities of men's and women's style

Both women and men can feel the pressures of keeping their wardrobe up-to-date and in time, yet men's fashion often feels a lot easier. Of program, for both sexes, outfits and style choices can be just as intricate, and there are numerous'stylish'things that could quickly become fashion faux pas - who are able to say they often see people running around in 70s flares? On the other hand, men's style includes a few choice items which can exist eternally - which man is planning to look out of place with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Pick classic cuts, colors and fabrics and you'll never look out-of-place.

Why basic men's fashion is timeless

The classic man's suit has barely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are many types for different events, but they are all popular in their quest for a wise, sharp try to find the wearer. The best part about classic fashion for men is that it is simply elegant efficiently neat. A well-groomed man will typically look his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and this can be a testament to the design of such apparel. A suit will undoubtedly be worn to work in many professions because of the professional look it offers to the wearer, instilling a sense of respect and confidence. Equally a match will undoubtedly be worn to many social events, like a tuxedo to a black-tie event. This incredible flexibility which allows suits to be used in just about all events is what gives it its classic border and a permanent devote men's fashion.

Modern developments in traditional men's fashion

Though classic men's styles will never be replaced, it is interesting to note that shifts in men's fashion trends have brought particular classic clothes back into fashion. The acceptance of vintage clothing, specially, has taken back a wide-variety of common types into men's wardrobes, such as that of the dandy man. 'Dandy'is a term used to reference men who dress in a classic yet lavish way, placing value on appearance and working in a sophisticated method. This trend for almost'over-the-top'classic fashion for men is apparent from events such as the'Tweed Run', wherever men and girls of all ages clothe themselves in significantly Victorian-style clothing and decide to try the streets on vintage cycles - with many of the men sporting perfect mustaches! That is just one of many samples of data presenting the resurgence of such variations. There are also numerous sites on line which concentrate on gentlemanly type - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as whole internet sites such as'The Art of Manliness'dedicated to giving articles on common men's fashion and grooming.

In summary, whilst specific facets of traditional men's style can be cut back as new developments, the fundamental clothes which they derive from will never fall out of fashion.
