Gang Of Four – “England’s In My Bones” (Feat. Alison Mosshart) Video

Next month, the legendary British postpunk institution Gang Of Four returns with the new album What Happens Next. At this point, the band only has one remaining original member, guitarist Andy Gill, so the album is going to include a whole lot of guest singers. Alison Mosshart, of the Kills and the Dead Weather, sing… More »

Alison Mosshart & Eric Arjes – “Bad Blood”

The Kills and the Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart recently teamed up with Eric Arjes, a singer/songwriter from Nashville, for a brooding and synthy ballad called "Bad Blood." The song made an appearance on a recent episode of The Walking Dead, which makes me wonder why Mosshart doesn't soundtrack every episode of the show; her… More »

Gang Of Four – “Broken Talk” (Feat. Alison Mosshart)

Now that Gang Of Four have replaced founding vocalist Jon King with John "Gaoler" Sterry, guitarist Andy Gill is the only remaining original member of the band responsible for the landmark 1979 debut Entertainment! Given that Gang Of Four's lineup has become somewhat of a turnstile, it's reasonable enough that their next album, What HappensMore »

Watch Jack White Perform With The Kills And Cover Kanye, Beck, & Stooges In Dublin Last Night

The Kills opened for Jack White in Dublin last night ahead of White's stop at Glastonbury, which of course led to several collaborations between White and Kills singer Alison Mosshart, his Dead Weather bandmate. Mosshart came on stage early in the set to duet on White's Blunderbuss single "Love Interruption," and the Kills returned to… More »

The Dead Weather – “Open Up (That’s Enough)”

A couple of months ago, we learned that the Jack White/Alison Mosshart band the Dead Weather was getting ready for an imminent return by prepping a bunch of singles, all of them available through a Third Man subscription series that'll take the band through 2013. At some point, they'll also compile those songs, and a… More »

The Kills’ Alison Mosshart Covers “What A Wonderful World”

Tuesday night, the fourth season of the biker melodrama Sons Of Anarchy debuted on FX, and the episode featured the Kills/Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart covering the wide-eyed standard "What A Wonderful World." Mosshart's version is a calm, stripped-back take with none of her usual snarl. The Forest Rangers, the band led by Sons ofMore »

The Dead Weather – “Die By The Drop” Video

The first single from The Dead Weather's Sea Of Cowards is kind of a monster, as is its new video. Jack White and Alison Mosshart echo each other's taunts over the song's lurching, massive guitar hook. Mosshart always sings as if she's ready to boil over, but White is singing at full, manic bluster. Thi… More »

Photos, Video From The 2009 mtvU Woodie Awards

When MTV's college-obsessed little sister station mtvU announced the nominations for this year's Woodie Awards, we had some fun trying to make sense of the logic underlying the way in which they had grouped together bands and pit them against one another. The logic being: their demographic is college, and college is the time whe… More »

New Dead Weather Video – “I Cut Like A Buffalo”

The Dead Weather can be a mixed bag between their principals' ineffable charisma and their lesser songs' paint-by-numbers posturing -- but the project's certainly carved a niche in turning out some of the year's most memorable videos. Jack and Alison already treated each other like your mother (your mother loves to pump you Robert Rodriguez-style). More »

Street Scene 2009 In Photos

Some 30,000 people over two days crammed into the six-block area in San Diego's East Village that hosted the 25th annual Street Scene this past weekend. That's a strong number, albeit down from last year when people weren't scrambling for money to put food on their families. Still, those who made it witnessed a righteou… More »

Outside Lands 2009 In Photos

Last year, San Fran's inaugural Outside Lands festival featured Radiohead, but also power outage issues. This year: No Radiohead, but abundant electricity. Trade-offs! While Thom was twisting words at the Reading and Leeds fests in the motherland, Golden Gate park welcomed three days of artists that cut a wide demographic swath, including smart hip ho… More »

Diplo Remixes The Dead Weather

Jack and Alison's "Treat Me Like Your Mother" seemed to have seen its most radical redressing when the mercurial pair shot the shit out of each other in a desert, but then somehow Diplo got commissioned to fuck with the track a bit. Good call on that, too. Diplo, in a manner true to hi… More »

New Dead Weather Video – “Treat Me Like Your Mother”

Eminem's gruesome "3 A.M." premiered on Cinemax a few weeks back, so that's why the Dead Weather asked the channel to show its new video before Wanted on Saturday night. Because Jack White and Eminem are best bros from Detroit. Not because it makes no sense to premiere a music video on Cinemax when no… More »

Dead Weather Perform A Song, Visit A Pressing Plant, Diss The Digital Age

In a flurry of post-Cinemax/Late Show Horehound activity, we have crystal-clear pro-style black and white video of the band doing the dubbed-out "Cut Like A Buffalo" along with footage of them visiting United Record Pressing in Nashville to the strains of "Will There Be Enough Water?" to announce an album-associated contest that I ca… More »

The Dead Weather Bring “Hang You From The Heavens” To The Tonight Show

The Raconteurs are presumably still in the midst of a pretty successful run, and between Brendan Benson's upcoming solo LP and this here project they're using this down time to sate their (extra)extracurricular passions. But nobody doubts the true color of Jack's stripes lie in his name, and until he makes another record with Meg… More »

The Dead Weather’s Horehound Album Art, Tour Dates

A couple months ago Jack White launched Third Man Records' Nashville offices via his newest supergroup, The Dead Weather. As we mentioned then, and as you know by now, the band's made up of the Kills' Alison Mosshart, Raconteur Jack Lawrence on bass, Queens Of The Stone Age's Dean Fertita's on guitar, and White doing… More »

The Dead Weather @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 4/14/09

You couldn't be surprised when the Dead Weather's roadies came out in uniform dress code (suits and bowler hats) last night: This was a Jack White show after all. Although according to those who secured access to last night's NYC debut of supergroup the Dead Weather, the focus was primarily on the Kills vixen Aliso… More »

Jack White Unveils Dead Weather Supergroup

Office parties can be lame, but not when Jack White's your boss. Earlier tonight Conan's friend launched Third Man Records' new Nashville offices by debuting a supergroup called The Dead Weather. The Kills' Alison Mosshart is its frontwoman, Jack White contributes drums and vocals, Raconteur Jack Lawrence plays bass, and Queens Of The Stone Age'… More »
