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 where electricity meets the mind.
Thirteen wicked hot songs of love, loss, lust, life — from the Farfisa-fueled warped psycho-punk rave-up of “JUNK MAN,” to the clanking cri de coeur of “DEATH RAY,” to the outer-space end-of-days country funk of “WORM TOWN,” Spencer Gets It Lit delivers all of the friction, excitement, and post-modern depravity one could ever ask for!
Says Spencer, “Send out the Hit Signal! This is the most uncompromising album I’ve ever made!”
