The new album from danger-makers JON SPENCER and MATT VERTA-RAY — GOING WAY OUT WITH HEAVY TRASH — is their greatest salvo of passion and grind yet, a torrent of cut-throat twang, a nitro-burning joy ride that drives hot-rodded guitars and battered tube amps to their earthly extremes!!!

JON SPENCER cannot stop! His name is synonymous with high-energy deliverance!! He is the hardest-working man in the game today, a soul on fire, exploding across the starry sky like a Phantom jet!!!

Riding shotgun is the most feared guitar man in the world, the Lower East Side Studio Svengali and Master of the Analog Sound, Mr. MATT VERTA-RAY, who cuts audiences to ribbons with dagger riffs fired with sniper-like precision from his atomic-powered Gibson rockabilly blast box!!

But Heavy Trash goes deeper than just rock, rock, rock…

Yes, Heavy Trash rassles with the Sun Sound, echoing slap-back sludge and gurgling the dark hoodoo groove! Yes, Heavy Trash twangs and shivers in the cold moonlight!! Heavy Trash rhythms and blues, Heavy Trash punches and weaves… there are songs for listening and songs for dancing, sad songs, happy songs, and songs that will make you burn with fever. The words of these songs reflect the folly, the joy or the sadness in our lives, and Jon’s voice illustrates each mood with such precise honesty, taking you on a thrill ride to the depths of human emotion.

And how about that crazy cover? Continuing in the Trash Tradition of good taste, and living at the vanguard of radical free expression, none other than ace comix genius (and Adult Swim superstar) Tony “Drinky Crow” Millionaire inked the Way Out art!

Clever, witty, original, inventive, spontaneous, rockin, raw, sweaty, soulful, good-looking . . . how can one fully describe Heavy Trash? Perhaps the adjective most used by those of us who know is „out!“ Heavy Trash is “out,” as you’ll understand when you hear this album, their most Way Out collection of songs to date!

Three Bands in One!! An International Scandal!! A Global Conspiracy!!!!

This is the WIDE WAY OUT WORLD OF HEAVY TRASH!!!


Through their fine recordings, as well as personal appearances, Jon and Matt’s talent is on call 52 weeks of the year. But the Heavy Trash phenomenon is bigger than even these two giants of soul: they need three complete bands to get it all done!

Right now it would be difficult to draw boundaries on Heavy Trash Way Out Rock’n’Roll. Working with some of the finest musicians from Canada, Denmark, Far Rockaway, and laying tracks in London, Boston, and the Lower East Side, Heavy Trash Way Out Rock’n’Roll is as big as the globe!

Says Mr. Spencer: “WAY OUT grew from our insane touring methods, incorporating different musicians and different sounds for each part of the globe. Our first record was a studio experiment, but after it’s release we started gigging all over the world, using our good friends for back-up, and it was a huge success, an intercontinental sensation! This led us WAY OUT — recording in three different studios, in three different cities, each with a different live band, each with a different sound. The Sadies at Camp Street studio in Boston, with Paul Q Kolderie. The Danish guys at Toe Rag in London with Liam Watson, and the New York crew at home in Matt’s place with Ivan Julian behind the desk.”

The Sadies — Canadian country royalty, one of the finest bands out today, keeping a beautiful rich musical heritage alive.

The Danish guys — Yebo and the Great Nalna from the Tremolo Beer Gut and Kim Kix from Powersolo, great groups from Denmark putting a crazy twist of hopped-up rhythm and booze.

And in New York City — Simon Chardiet and Phil Hernandez, NYC music legends, scene-makers, and taste-masters, bridging the gap between the styles of yesterday and the sound of tomorrow.

This is the History of Rock’n’Roll coming at you in adult-sized doses, wired and ugly, too big for New York, too powerful for Scandanavia, and too hot for London!!!
