Indie-punk-blues stalwarts Jon Spencer Blues Explosion just released a new video for the song “Bag Of Bones,” off of the album Meat And Bone. It's a short quick animated take on the whole JSBX dynamic ... it looks this could be a day in the life of Jon Spencer.

Check out what co-director Lucy Dyson said about the video: “Thinking back over the creative process for the ‘Bag of Bones’ animated video, I nearly don’t know where to begin…but I think the first idea Jon suggested was a link to an old Bud Spencer (the Italian action-comedy actor) movie, with Bud messing up some guys in a gym. We played with the idea of a cartoon Russell Simins depicted as Bud Spencer messing up all the pretender rock n’ rollers, we kinda took it down that path, but with Bud/The Blues Explosion taking a wrong stage exit and ending up in psychedelic zombie film, greatly enhanced by Steve Pavlovsky’s brilliant Liquid Light Lab oil projections.

We also spoke a lot about animation references, there are nods to John Kricfalusi, Dr Who, Terry Gilliam (my favourite), and even though we did discuss Tex Avery and Chuck Jones at length, I don’t know if my and Joseph Jensen’s animation skills quite got there, but it was a lot of fun to create. Jon’s constant creative feedback of ‘make it darker and weirder,’ matched with references to beautiful Ezra Jack Keats children’s book illustrations, were always a joy to receive.”
