Film At 11: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

Thanks to longtime MAGNET fave Jon Spencer for guest editing our website all week. Be sure to check out the reissues of the Blues Explosion’s Now I Got Worry and Controversial Negro, as well as Amsterdam Throwdown King Street Showdown, the new album by Spencer, wife Cristina Martinez and Solex’s Elisabeth Esselink. We’re going somewhat old school with this Blues Explosion video. It’s for 1998’s “Talk About The Blues,” and it stars Winona Ryder (as Spencer), Giovanni Ribisi (as guitarist Judah Bauer) and John C. Reilly (as drummer Russell Simins).
