Jon Spencer's Heavy Trash, 'Gentle': A Music Mix exclusive video

Posted on

Nineties alt-scene dreamboat and bona fide blues-dandy Jon Spencer, he of the Blues Explosion, Pussy Galore, and, no doubt, countless boxes of Clairol Hair Black, has spent the last four years gigging with raucous punkabilly outfit Heavy Trash.

He and bandmate Matt Verta-Ray (late of langorous NYC rockers Madder Rose) are spending November on the road to promote their third Trash release, Midnight Soul Serenade. In the meantime, they’ve bestowed the just-minted video for “Gentle,” directed by renowned grunge-scene chronicler Michael Lavine, upon the Music Mix. Watch the black-and-white action (Winona not included) below:
