Jon Spencer (Pussy Galore, J.S.’s Blues Explosion) and Matt Verta-Ray (Speedball Baby) are Heavy Trash. Their new (and third) album, Midnight Soul Serenade, is due out in October on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum. On the dark side of the street, these are the guys I want to have playing on stage; if you know what I’m sayin. Blues/rock/soul/punkrock/garage/R&B collide all together in one big New York City kind of rock mess of hotness. I’ve always said that the most recent garage rock revival that people credit the White Stripes for should really be traced back to Spencer cause those classic Blues Explosion records still can’t be denied. But when you really think about it, the concept of “garage rock revival” is an oxymoron cause there is and always will be garage rock so if it never goes away how can it make a comeback.
