Hey kids, ever wonder how Jon Spencer gets all those wacky sounds out of that box on stage? Me too. It’s called a Theremin, and here he demonstrates it for a group of school children in a room that looks, unsettlingly, like The Black Lodge. Yeah, he humps it.

  1. He’s tonguing the antenna. Tonguing it. Awesome.

  2. Wow.

    Always wanted a theremin, but now I think it’ll haunt my dreams.

  3. Cool. Michigan’s Mason Proper use a theremin both on their recordings and during their live shows.

  4. He uses his foot!

    You can find this on the Matador 10th Anniversary DVD Everything Is Nice. I don’t think the DVD is in print, but it’s around.

  5. BEST VIDEO EVER!!!!!!!! what fucking kids show is that?

  6. Man, I miss Jon Spencer. There was a time there in the mid-90s when the Blues Explosion was the hottest band on the planet. The last time I saw them was in 2001, and even then they were becoming a sad parody of themselves. Are they even still around? Is anyone still listening?
