I meant this as an antidote to the Madonna halftime show. From JPK as always, but WordPress eated it at the time.
Boss Hog, “Ski Bunny” (1995)
This is my favorite song of all the Jon Spencer projects that I know, from the second, self-titled Boss Hog album. In typical Spencer fashion it lopes along at top speed, sounding at times like the players can barely keep up with one another. It’s full of good jokes even for as short as it is. I like the way it switches up expectations on the swearing, turning on a single word to convert it from a predictable moment of postpunk ragegasm into a hilarious junior high school plaint—and then going back again on that later.
Update. Weird, I can’t watch it, I was able to watch it before.
Let’s make this a Super Bowl open thread if we need another.
