The names are Jon Spencer & Cristina Martinez (a/k/a
Boss Hog and assorted other scum-rock combos) and Elisabeth Esselink (a/k/a
electronic mistress Solex), and the name of the game is Amsterdam Throwdown, King Street Showdown! It’s a project
the three mavericks cooked up and are aiming to unveil it May 18 via UK label

As we stand united, let us shake our collective ass. Amsterdam Throwdown,
Kingstreet Showdown!  is back-to back with it, kicking off with the sugar-fix that is “Bon Bon”: a dirty, funky bastard of a concoction, complete with

orchestra members on mephedrone! “Aapie”
is a tribute to our ancestry and invites us to unleash our inner monkey!

Esselink has ingeniously fattened up a rich tapestry of cool, the perfect
canvas for Cristina and Jon, who pepper-spray it with personalized lunacy
whilst shrugging off the wannabes scrambling for their plinth.  

 

 

Yes
indeed. Let us shake our collective ass. See ya on May 18,
