LP - Black Vinyl
Orange is the 1994 studio album by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. On Orange, the Blues Explosion open with a nod to a plush, Stax feel for the blues with the aid of a full string section. Other unusual touches include the use of scratching and a guest appearance by media sensation and blues aficionado Beck.
“1994’s Orange finds the Blues Explosion at the exact moment they left behind the pompadour and-sideburns Crypt Records trash-can garage-rock universe and sidled their way into the Beastie Boys/Beck/Cibo Matto downtown genre-fucking cosmpolitan party. Beck actually shows up on Orange, literally phoning in a guest verse on “Flavor”, and they toured with the Beasties soon after. It’s easy to hear what those guys liked in the band’s assault. The Blues Explosion were honest, organic experimenters– fusing tons of different styles into their musical assault without compromising their ferocity or making any of it sound forced. These influences are fully internalized, rather than self-consciously stapled on.” – Pitchfork
"Orange is the most commercially successful set JBSE ever turned in, but that's beside the point. In the 21st century, it sounds every bit as messed up, necessary, and frenzied as it did in 1993" - All Music Guide
Bellbottoms was used prominently in the opening sequence of hit film "Baby Driver" (2017)
