This also Effect and Cause from Whitehorse and has great close-ups of Jack and Meg:

I finally got around to the new album. After three spins I'm still not warming up to "St. Andrew (This Battle Is In The Air)" but otherwise I'm very happy with it, It's good to see that Jack and Meg are as playful, eccentric and willing to experiment as ever. Current favourites:

Icky Thump
Prickly Thorn, But Sweetly Worn (at first I went ughhh bagpipes but it really is a lovely song)
Rag And Bone

I'm Slowly Turning Into You is still my favorite song from Icky Thump. There's nothing i really haven't taken too...I'm still enjoying the whole thing!

This album just gets better and better everytime I listen to it! My favourites so far are Icky Thump and Effect And Cause.

Does anybody think the the Icky Thump guitar part reminds a little of Mocy Dick by Led Zeppelin? It just occured to me on the other day... (I don't know if this was already discussed...)

I agree, it sounds better with every single listen. I'm with imp13 - the second half is gold! That stretch of Little Cream Soda through to Cause and Effect really makes the album for me. Standout from the first half is 300 M.P.H. Torrential Outpour Blues.

And yeah, that riff sounds very similar to Moby Dick. Lots of nods to Zeppelin in this one. Lots of nods to classic rock in general, actually.

AOD, it's only two weeks until our show! I'll have to stroll over and say hi before the gig starts.

And Zeppelin probably got the Moby Dick riff from another band anyway! Good times all around.

Nowww Meg, don't be ruuuude!

Some obscure blues tune--->Rolling Stones - Shake Your Hips--->ZZ Top - La Grange--->White Stripes - Rag And Bone

Just saying. At least it's a good riff.

I agree with the nods. Their whole existence is like a tribute to the past...yet they're so much more than a nostalgia act. It's a deliciously fine line they walk

It's just starting to hit me that I'll actually be seeing them...two Mondays from tonight! Hard to believe I'll also be meeting a live Interferencer...just as exciting as the actual show

I love that part

Like the album, that song is getting better with each listen.


Edit: GG, Just looking at my ticket...I'm in section 121, row 17, seat 3. Hopefully within strolling distance!

I don't think they can get any cooler if they tried!

White Stripes puts on surprise show at bowling alley

CanWest News Service
Published: Tuesday, July 03, 2007

It was 7:30 p.m. Saturday night when Allison Hunter got the call to host the rock duo White Stripes in a free surprise show at the Saskatoon bowling alley her family built 30 years ago. Through text messaging, phone calls, Facebook and emails, Hunter gathered a crowd of just less than 200 by 3 p.m. Sunday. At 3:02 p.m., Jack and Meg White appeared from a side door, casually swinging bowling pins and cutting across the lanes to their instruments. Without a word, Jack White launched into a bluesy rendition of Red Bowling Ball Ruth.
