Spencer P. Jones' Memoriam




Last night at The Thornbury Theatre, there was a musical memoriam for the well loved and respected musician, Spencer P. Jones. There were a few heartfelt and funny stories. Plus musical performance from fellow Beast Of Bourbon member, Kim Salmon who recorded with Spencer on his last album, Runaways. The Johnnys bashed some CowPunk classics with Hoody, Slim and Billy Pommer Jr.. They were joined on stage with comedian Anthony Morgan for '(There Is Gonna Be A) Showdown' and an energetic rendition of 'Ten Outlaws'.

Spencer's band The Escape Committee performed some classic Spencer songs with the help of special guests Adalita, Dan Brodie and Tex Napalm. Other bands that played include The Pink Tiles, The Braves, Blown Cones, Jules Sheldon, James McCann with Penny Ikinger, Hamish McLean and many more. The Violent Femme's Brian Richie performed a moving tribute using a Japanese flute.

A big thank you for Mary Mihelakos, Neil Wedd and the owners of The Thornbury Theatre for hosting Spencer's wake.

UPDATE (5th Sept 2018)
You might have noticed that ALL 33 HD VIDEOS are no longer available from the Spencer P. Jones wake. This is due to Universal Music in the USA making BOGUS COPYRIGHT CLAIMS on my live videos. e.g. Regurgitator performing a Prince cover live (as he recently passed away when this concert happened) but Universal is claiming that I am breaching Prince's copyright, even though I was fully approved to capture this performance by Regurgitator. Vimeo has unjustly responded by shutting down my Vimeo Music Channel, which has had almost 4,000 videos and over a million views, after a decade of selflessly documenting the Melbourne Music Scene with such dedication and to the best of my ability. I have lodged a complaint and so far have received no reply.
