(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Psychobilly duo Heavy Trash – featuring singer-guitarist Jon Spencer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Pussy Galore – will bring its noirish blend of rockabilly, garage punk, alt-country and early rock ‘n’ roll to Club Helsinki Hudson on Thursday, October 9, at 8pm. Bloodshot Bill warms up the crowd for Heavy Trash.
In Heavy Trash, Spencer teams up with his pal, singer-bassist Matt Verta-Ray, formerly of New York bands Madder Rose and Speedball Baby. Together, the two create a vintage sound, transporting audiences back to the mid-1950s when by its very nature rock ‘n’ roll was avant-punk – a music ahead of its time. When it’s played as honestly as they play it in Heavy Trash, rock retains as much shock and awe as it had in its early days.
Bloodshot Bill started playing in his hometown of Montreal, around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then he’s established an international reputation for recapturing the thrilling sound of early rockers like Gene Vincent, Link Wray and Elvis Presley.
