The new single. It kicks ass. Jack comes in on vocals late in the song...vocals unlike anything he's ever done with either of his other bands.

on first listen I'd say it's good
but it sounds like something that should get me psyched more than that it gets me psyched
or something like that

Jack White returns to rock's roots with new band
By Scott Deveau, Canwest News ServiceJune 17, 2009 8:02 AM






Jack White's newest band, The Dead Weather, puts out debut LP Horehound July 14.

TORONTO -- In an era when music is downloaded as quickly as it is discarded, Jack White, one of the busiest men in rock 'n' roll, makes no bones about the fact he doesn't like the way the music industry is run.

But rather than resign himself to his fate, the 33-year-old frontman has chosen to take a stand with his own record label, Third Man Records, launched earlier this spring, with the ambition of returning something raw and real to an age he says is preoccupied with the overproduced and ethereal digital format.

Third Man is based out of Nashville, near White's home, in an all-in-one complex that not only houses an eight-track recording studio, but also a dark room for making album covers and a record store out front where he sells the vinyl records he produces and has pressed just a few blocks away.

"The studio and the label are all wrapped around the idea of tangible music, mechanical ways to record and reproduce and distribute it," White said in an interview at Toronto's Four Seasons hotel.

"People are lining up around the block to buy these (records), so I know there are people out there that want something tangible, something real."

The label is not only the new home to his bands, the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, but also the birthplace of his latest salvo, The Dead Weather, a bluesy, booze-soaked rock supergroup of sorts in which he plays drums.

Alison Mosshart of the Kills sings lead vocals in the band, and his fellow Raconteurs, Jack Lawrence and Dean Fertita, who is also a member of the Queens of the Stone Age, round out the group on bass and guitar respectively.

While White's ambitions may be lofty, and he is the first to admit he doesn't have all the answers, the Dead Weather is a much grittier offering than his other two bands.

The Dead Weather was forged in the aftermath of a tumultuous tour last summer in which the Kills opened for the Raconteurs. The Kills had their tour bus stolen during the tour, and White lost his voice due to bronchitis, which led Mosshart to help him out on vocals for a few shows.

A bond was formed between the two, and when the tour was coming to a close, the duo decided record a cover of Gary Newman's "Are Friends Electric" at White's home in Nashville.

"We drank quite a bit on the last night in Atlanta and we thought it would be a good idea to record without sleeping. So, I hopped on their bus and went back to Nashville," Mosshart recalls. "In that same span of 12 hours, we started to write four other songs. It just came real easy."

The result is Horehound, a blistering, Zeppelin-esque album, which will be released on July 14.

Right from the album's first track, "60 Feet Tall," you have a bass-driven, sludgy tour de force that recalls the stripped down rock of the early '70s, with Fertita contributing spiralling guitar riffs and Mosshart's wailing vocals bringing a little sex appeal to the band.

At times, you can also hear the remnants of groups' past incarnations, like on the track "Treat Me Like Your Mother," which smacks of the Kills dredged through the Dead Weather's heavier sound.
Horehound even includes an explosive cover of Bob Dylan's "New Pony," which was recorded on a lark but landed on the album when White began to mix it in January.

While Horehound will still be available for download on iTunes when it's released, White says he's heartened by the fact that its first 7-inch vinyl single, "Hang You from the Heavens," managed to sell 6,000 copies.

In fact, the resurgence of vinyl itself, with companies like Best Buy moving to sell it again, and Walmart considering the same, he said is further proof that people want something to hold in their hands when it comes to music.

"Do I really need a MySpace page for this f---ing music? Do I really need to do that? There's a part of me, that just out of spite, says I don't want to do it because it's so antithetical to what I do," White said.

Where White finds his energy is anybody's guess. In addition to preparing for a summer tour with the Dead Weather, he is currently working on a new White Stripes album and is helping to launch a new documentary of the White Stripes 2007 Canadian tour, in which the duo played a gig in every province and territory. The tour was an homage of sorts to his family's Nova Scotia roots, he said.

The film, The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights, is expected to close this September's Toronto International Film Festival.

"I always thought it was an untapped frontier. We booked a show in every province and territory and we found out that no Canadian band had done that," White said. "It was great to be part of a new frontier there for a minute or two."


The Dead Weather's Horehound is out July 14.

It's just now dawning on me that this album is coming out soon. Like most of you, I'd follow Jack off a cliff. I hope this thing is better than the last Raconteurs effort. "Treat Me Like Yr Mother" already shits on most of Consolers of the Lonely.

And by the way, they're playing the aforementioned tune on Conan tomorrow.

Thanks for the Conan tip - I'll have to remember to tape it!


Someone should have proofread that article; Gary Newman?

Treat Me Like Your Mother sounds great and though I don't expect Jack doing anything better than Stripes, I'm looking foward to this.

Here's the performance:

It's sad that even though Jack isn't a very good drummer....he's still better than Meg.

I love her voice. I don't like that many girl singers, but she's awesome.

The album is streaming today on iLike. I'm about to go to sleep myself or I'd listen to it right now. But I'll probably sit down and take it in at some point when I wake up.
