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.
