Spencer Clip Spoofs Soundtrack Videos

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Erykah Badu, Silver Jews, R.E.M., John Lennon, Dave Davies...

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's first video from their forthcoming Acme album is designed as a send-up of movie-clip-based soundtrack videos. In the clip for "Talk About the Blues," singer/guitarist Jon Spencer, guitarist Judah Bauer and drummer Russell Simins all take the roles of actors in a fictitious, gritty Manhattan drama, while film stars Winona Ryder ("Alien: Resurrection"), John C. Reilly ("Boogie Nights") and Giovanni Ribisi ("Saving Private Ryan") assume the lip-synching roles of the Blues Explosion. "It may sound kind-of wild, but wait till you see the video," Spencer said.
