Jon Spencer Blues Explosion "Bellbottoms"

Here's another Weekend Post:

Nearly 20 years later this song is still pretty incredible.  Is there anything, anything, like this mix of dirty blues and strings?

Also . . . if you happen to be making some kind of retro-Run/DMC-type rap record, you should definitely take guitar-riff-with-strings section from the one-minute-mark and loop it.  No need to thank me when you have a monstrous hit on your hands.

Hear the song on Youtube.

Weekend posts are a chance to revisit songs that have happy memories, not of anything in particular, other than just hearing the tunes.

Many of these songs were tracks that I played during my 90s stint as an Alternative/Modern Rock radio show.  They're tunes that I hardly hear these days, but are fun to revisit.
