#92. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – ‘Mars Arizona (DFA Remix)’ (2006)

Few people can pull this off.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9Z_yMJch5k

Jon Spencer needs no introduction. Nor does James Murphy, one half of The DFA and the man behind LCD Soundsystem, love them or hate them. Tim Goldsworthy, the yin to Murphy’s yang, might not be a name you know though. Once a part of UK electronia/big beat powerhouse U.N.K.L.E, he then went to New York and ended partnering up with Murphy to form DFA records, producing a shit-ton of dance-punk like this along the way. Throw some wobbly synths and some one-note Stooges piano on top of a streched-out punk blues jam and you’ve got the formula here. It shouldn’t work but it works here.
