Boss Hog - Live on WFMU 12-20-2008

It seems like ages since those racy (Cristina Martinez, hello!!) Boss Hog videos were played on late-night MTV. And here's the band now, sounding as racy and unfiltered as ever, live in studio for Terre T's Cherry Blossom Clinic on WFMU.

Before you listen, a bit of history, from their web page:

Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer met on the feast of Immaculate Conception in 1985 at a Jesus & Mary Chain show at the original 9:30 club in Washington, D.C...Boss Hog started in 1989 as a last minute fill in for a cancelled group at New York’s famed CBGB’s. Cristina assembled a group of rag-tag players to form the original all-star line up of Boss Hog. It included members of Pussy Galore, the Honeymoon Killers and Unsane. A constantly rotating cast of misunderstood misfits. Very angry, very volatile. The perfect medium to express their rage, their confusion, their sense of humor, their love of music...
