Check out ‘I Got The Hits’.
Pre-order the album here.
Says Spencer, “I can’t wait to get over and play for everyone. I will be joined by the HITmakers – Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Chrome Cranks, etc), Sam Coomes (Quasi, Heatmeiser, Elliot Smith), and M. Sord (No Monster Club, M. Sord) – we will be kicking out all of the new long-player SPENCER SINGS THE HITS! as well as some choice cuts from Pussy Galore, The Blues Explosion, Heavy Trash, and maybe even a super-secret cover-song or two. We just did a stint in the States with the Melvins so I know from experience that these will be some dynamite nights of rock, roll, riot, and rumble.”
The Melvins/Spencer tour kicks off in Haarlem, Netherlands on 20 October, with Spencer sneaking in a headline show in Glasgow on 27 October, climaxing at London’s KOKO on 30 October. Spencer then heads west to Bristol to open his headline dates at the Exchange on 1 November. Full dates are…
