The Stumble - Jon Spencer


‘They were dynamite, potent rip roaring Chicago style Blues!’ Blues Matters Issue 42

To all friends and fans of the band,

At long last our 2nd CD ‘The Houngan’, the follow up to our debut ‘The World is Tough’, is finished and ready to play! The CD arrives back from the manufacturer this week and the official launch gig will be at The Bitter Suite, Preston on Saturday November 8th at 9p.m. Venue postcode PR12XQ, phone 01772 827007 Tickets £8 on the door. The CD features 13 songs of which 11 are original with 2 covers of the blues standard ‘Ain’t Nobody’s Business’and a slide turbo charged version of Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Meet Me at The Bottom'(both of which have been live favourites for a while now). The new material has already been debuted live earlier this Autumn at our shows at Southport and Darlington Arts Centres (both sold out) and we’re looking forward to taking the new songs and stretching them out further this next year. The full track listing of the album is…
