The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, those great ’90s garage-rock showmen, are about to release Freedom Tower – No Wave Dance Party 2015, their second album since getting back together, in a couple of week. We’ve posted their first single “Do The Get Down,” and now they’ve made a video for another one, the gleefully spazzy “Betty Vs. The NYPD.” The band has a cross-dressing cameo in director Michael Lavine’s video, but it’s mostly given over to a cartoonish police-station interrogation that turns into an even more cartoonish dance party. There is a whole lot of John Waters in this video, and you can watch it below.
Freedom Tower – No Wave Dance Party 2015 is out 3/24 on Mom + Pop.
