In 1986 and I was 18, segueing into an all-black wardrobe and  working through a series of unfortunate rebellious hairstyles. Hanging out in a dorm room, I first heard Jon Spencer’s band, Pussy Galore’s song, **** Tease.  The song rocked, but I was still slightly shocked, and totally smitten. .

When I was 21, my boyfriend gave me a Pussy Galore album and a cream horn for my birthday.  Both things I dearly loved and enjoyed.  Sadly, after we broke up, he jimmied the lock of  my apartment and stole the record, some spare change, and a bottle of cooking sherry.

By the early 90’s I lived in big apartment with a 60’s thrift store sofa, a bunch of boys, and an iguana named Rosebud.  We listened to The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and drank Rolling Rock all the time.

So of course I left suburbia last week to go see Spencer’s new band Heavy Trash. The icing? My husband’s band, King Memphis, was the opening act.   I drank beer and stayed up late and ogled the band like I  was still 21.

I no longer have the alcoholic boyfriend, thankfully.  But I still have an all-black wardrobe, questionable hair, and damn I love Jon Spencer.

How could I not!?
