These three dudes in pimp shoes have been carving up sacred cows and serving them up with truly irreverent relish since their inception in 1990. Jon Spencer, founding guitarist/vocalist of Pussy Galore hooked up with Honeymoon Killers drummer Russell Simins and guitar ace Judah Bauer. Equipped with guitars, drums, theremin and broken down amps, inspired by the hellbound spirits of Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown and Howlin' Wolf, the transcendent qualities of gospel and the raw sexuality of the blues they fused a sound that would liberate all who heard it.
