SPENCER P. JONES
This is, most probably, the best solo album done by living legend SPENCER P. JONES, ever.
Spencer P. Jones doesn´t need an introduction for Australian music fans. His long career being the core of bands such as THE BEASTS OF BOURBON and THE JOHNNYS, as well as his solo project and collaborations with artists such as Rowland S. Howard, Nick Cave, Gun Club, Lydia Lunch, etc, put him on top of the this kind of music´s scene.
“Sobering thoughts” is a record where, besides of having John Nolan (BORED!, POWDER MONKEYS) on guitar, different kinds of music are gathered. From rock´n´roll shots straight to your ears (reminiscent of Johnny Thunders and the Hearbreakers or Richard Hell and the Voidoids) to broken hearted ballads full of intensity, going through the music signed by all previously mentioned bands.
Anxious, desperate, furious, vicious, broken hearted and full of intensity and passion, this record reaches the top of creativity in the career of this legendary artist.
