iTunes Review

Jon Spencer (Pussy Galore, Blues Explosion) and Matt Verta-Ray (Madder Rose, Speedball Baby) combined forces for a punk-charged take on rockabilly and other roots music with 2005’s self-titled debut. Nothing broke in the process and for once Spencer couldn’t be accused of mocking the music with a hipster’s sneer as has often been the complaint. So the duo haven’t tried to fix a thing on the 2007 follow-up, Going Way Out With Heavy Trash. Much like many of the rockabilly records of the 1950s, a good selection of which can be sampled on the Rhino collection Rockin’ Bones for starters, Heavy Trash specialize in a crazed enthusiasm that’s sparked by a manic, impatient beat and guitarists that wait like expert knife-wielders anxious to burst into action with quick, slashing riffs. “Pure Gold,” “They Were Kings” and “Kissy Baby” sound as if they could’ve come straight from the ‘50s. The duo are backed by Canadian root rockers and labelmates the Sadies and members of a few Denmark roots rockers as well. For high weirdness, “You Can’t Win” ends things with a disjointed pastiche of studio chatter and messing around.

Customer Reviews

Jon Spencer is amazing

I had no idea that Heavy Trash had another album coming out until I stumbled upon this. Man am I glad I did. This album is every bit as good as their first album. The whole album feels like the soundtrack to some lost Tarantino movie and I mean that as a high compliment. I hope more people will take the time to find this album but if not it's definately their loss. I can't think of any situation where this album wouldn't be the perfect musical backdrop. Give it a chance, you'll be happy you did.

Fun, Fun Music

Heavy Trash play rock and do it damn well. Enough said.

Rockin good fun

Yeah it sounds a little like the Cramps but that's a good thing! I miss the Blues Explosion but Jon Spencer continues to good stuff with Heavy Trash.


Formed: 2005

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

A meeting of the minds between two musicians who explore the nexus between punk rock and roots music, Heavy Trash is a collaboration between Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray. Spencer first attracted the attention of adventurous music fans in 1985 with his primitive guitar work and raw vocals with frantic noise merchants Pussy Galore, but when the band split in 1990, he joined forces with guitarist Judah Bauer and drummer Russell Simins to form the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
