Pitchfork Media is reporting that Spencer Moody (ex-Murder City Devils) and John Atkins (ex-764-Hero) have united to form The John and Spencer Booze Explosion. Having debuted the band live at Seattle's Velvet Elvis Theater a few years ago, they are now set to release an album on NYC's Tiger Style Records. Also in the band is Joe Plummer (Black Heart Procession, Magic Magicians), Dann Galluci (Murder City Devils), Jim Roth (Delusions, Built to Spill), and indie producer Phil Ek. No word on what the band sounds like as of yet but Pitchfork is toting it as a joke-cover band.
