About “Tour Diary”
“Tour Diary” is a hidden song by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion from their album Experimental Remixes.
This is just a collage of soundcheck tomfoolery and bizarre questions from very excited European interviewers. The brief chunk of Jon’s rendition of Schoolly D’s “Gucci Time” with Russell Simins amazing trashcan breakbeat stylings is choice.
About Experimental Remixes
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is known for their high-energy blend of punk, blues, and rock music. Their album Experimental Remixes is a departure from their typical sound, as it features remixes of some of their most popular tracks. The album features a diverse array of remix artists, each putting their own spin on the band’s classic tracks.
One standout remix is “Flavor Part 1 (Beck Remix),” which incorporates electronic beats and distorted vocal samples into the already frenetic track. Another notable remix is “Talk About the Blues (Mickey Finn & L’attitudes Remix),” which features a funkier groove and prominent bassline.
While Experimental Remixes may not be the best introduction to the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion’s sound, it’s an interesting and dynamic collection of remixes that demonstrates the band’s willingness to experiment and collaborate with other artists. Fans of the band and fans of remix culture alike will appreciate this album’s unique take on the band’s music.
