SPENCER SINGS THE HITS!

JON SPENCER, THE BLUES EXPLOSION MAN who put the BELLBOTTOMS on BABY DRIVER!

The Top Cat who spread the Secret Sauce in BOSS HOG!

The Rockabilly Right-Hook from Heavyweight Outlaws HEAVY TRASH!

The Swank-Fucking Master of PUSSY GALORE!

Jon Spencer is back! Often imitated, never duplicated, the original NYC underground-rock legend returns from the wilderness with twelve red-hot hits, each more powerful than the last!

This is Garage Punk for Now People! A wizard's brew of rhythm & blues and subversive dance grooves, weaponized with sci-fi skronk and industrial attitude, calibrated for the Revolution, a ball-peen hammer of sound guaranteed to destroy any post-modern hangover!

Pulsing with energy, clanging with excitement, and dripping with radioactive soul and raw emotion, Jon Spencer opens up his heart like never before, exploring man's modern condition with caustic guitars and outerworld crooning, asking and answering the musical question, "Is it possible to torch the cut-throat world of fake news and pre-fab, plastic-coated teen ennui with the cold hard facts of rock'n'roll?"

THE ANSWER IS YES!

SPENCER SINGS THE HITS!

This is the truth serum America has been craving, the beginning of a rock'n'roll special counsel that takes no prisoners and puts the squares on ice!

Recorded and mixed with Bill Skibbe at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI.

Featuring the talents of Sam Coomes (Quasi, Heatmeiser) and M. Sord (M. Sord).
Uncle Kurtis
Uncle Kurtis
Launched in August, 2017, Asheville-based psyche/punk band Uncle Kurtis is on-the-rise for originality, musicianship, and captivating, highly energetic live performances. Consisting of Graham Barrineau on drums, Riley Darnell on lead vocals, Riley "Raul" McCorvy on guitar, Jackson Lee on keyboards, guitar and vocals, and Quinn Sforza on bass. The growing list of completely original Uncle Kurtis songs blends the bandmates’ interests in punk, jazz, funk, reggae, and countless other influences.

After debuting as part of an Experience Music Showcase at Salvage Station, the second Uncle Kurtis performance at the Fall edition of the Lake Eden Arts Festival was recorded, and in the hands of Asheville FM DJ Steven Howard and his colleagues, their original tracks “Back to Iowa,” “Circus Time,” “Pigeons” and “Worst Song Ever” have been getting regular airplay ever since. Uncle Kurtis – Live at 2017 LEAF debuted in the #21 spot on the station’s Top 30 List of LP Releases last December.

In November, 2017, the band hit Recording/Mastering Engineer Jack Kiefert’s Atlanta-based Rex Recording Studio to record "Let’s Kill Uncle Kurtis." The band recorded the first-ever studio versions of nine iconic original creations.

Released at a launch party at Asheville Music Hall on Aug. 16 thanks to Girth Records, "Let's Kill Uncle Kurtis" is available on CD, Download + Stream via Amazon, Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube and beyond. Uncle Kurtis continues building its audience in Asheville and beyond with live performances at music festivals and numerous renowned venues.
