Billy Wolf - R.I.P.


Last night Billy "BassWolf" (from Guitar Wolf) died of a heart attack.
Billy was a larger-than-life person: his dangerous onstage personality was never an act. He was as hard as nails and as funny as hell. He could break your fingers with his handshake then light up a room with his smile and laugh.

Our thoughts go out tonight to his wife and child. And his brothers in Guitar Wolf.

Jon Spencer & Matt Verta-Ray are Heavy Trash!


There is a secret place where even the best-intentioned rockabilly explorations are scarred by dirty guitars, bad dreams, and lust gone wrong...Where murder ballads rub up against filthy R&B and frantic rock'n'roll...Where country ruminations drip with echo and sadness... This is where Spencer and Verta-Ray fermented their very souls and gave birth to Heavy Trash, the perfect soundtrack for boozy all-night throw downs, pettin' parties and psychedelic fright shows. Mr. Spencer, of course, is the Shudder and Shake behind the Blues Explosion and The Most Exciting Performer in Rock'n'Roll Today. Mr. Verta-Ray chopped heads with Speedball Baby and with six razor-sharp strings he carved these songs from Raw Tombstone and committed them to tape in his basement studio in New York's Lower East Side. The result is Heavy Trash. Play it for the one you love. You cannot lose.
Out on In-Fidelity April 25th
