The Dead Weather – Treat Me Like Your Mother

4 Jul

What is it with that man Jack White? Everything he touches seems to turn to gold. Except of course for Meg White’s drum sticks – that’s a different story. Talking of drumming, Jack White has shown his skills as a sticks man are equally as spectacular as his guitar playing ability.

I am of course talking about the hot new band called The Dead Weather. A dirty rock and roll supergroup featuring a smorgosbord of amazing musicians such as Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Jack Lawrence from the Raconteurs and Dean Fertita from Queens of the Stone Age.

On paper, well, OK… a screen, that looks pretty fucking sweet doesn’t it? It sure does. And it should come as no surprise that in audio form it’s as mindblowing as you would expect.

The only worry about the power of this band however is the fact that it could signal the end of the White Stripes… with Jack having two stunning side projects on the go and the White Stripes being limited by their stripped down sound, it’s pretty clear which one would be the first to go. That said, this is Jack White we are talking about – a man who could take a shit in a recording studio and make it sound spectacular.

For now though, just enjoy The Dead Weather. Their album ‘Horehound’ is out in a couple of weeks and I for one can’t wait. It’s scuzzy and sleezy rock n roll delivered with ferocious blood and sweat that is sure to scare away the skinny indie runts.
