Werfpop - Leiden 13/07/08

"Somehow, despite the best intentions of the promoters to lift Werfpop onto a level that could be seen as equal with other Dutch festivals, there is always a feeling that this is an excuse for the good burghers of Leiden to stroll around the park. "

"This was a glossy, embossed booklet with a page for each night explaining a little about the band, the album of choice and a set list for the gig. I turned to the Mudhoney page and and I like what I see. The set list in particular appeals to me, but, in essence this project is hijacking the trappings of other music, somehow making it just as valid an art form as an evening at the opera. 'Look at us, we grew up'. "

All Tomorrows Parties: Don't Look Back (Mudhoney & Jon Spenser) Camden Koko - 16/9/05, 23/09/05

The Mudhoney set list in particular appeals to me, but, in essence this project is hijacking the trappings of other music, somehow making it just as valid an art form as an evening at the opera. 'Look at us, we grew up'.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Paard van Troje, Den Haag, 18/07/05

Everything is sharp, every lick and riff are honed and every musical diversion has a suitably satisfying conclusion.

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Damage

There is evidence that Damage is their most abstract lp to date, quirky and surreal in part.
