Jack White’s 10 Weirdest Merch Items

Sure, Radiohead have come up with some cool merch in their day but they’ve got nothing on potential collaborator Jack White.

Think about it: How many times have you found yourself in dire need of a stylish balsa plane that represents your choice listening tastes — but you can only find a Plane… More »

On the heels of Jack White’s new album announcement as well as the unveiling of Blunderbuss’s first single “Love Interruption,” we thought it was time to revisit the hits — not the literal ones, unfortunately — of White’s wide-reaching, strange and prolific career so far. So, here’s 13 of Jack White’s most memorable collaborations. Sorry… 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 »

Brendan Benson Gets “A Whole Lot Better” With Letterman

Surprising nobody, folks are more keyed in to the fact that Brendan Benson has released a solo album this time around. His last three LPs paved the way for successful runs with the Raconteurs, and in turn that fun with Jack has paved the way for the Michigan songsmith’s appearance at the Ed Sullivan Theatre… 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 »

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 »

New Brendan Benson – “Feel Like Taking You Home” (Stereogum Premiere)

Something tells me people are gonna be keyed into Brendan Benson’s forthcoming solo LP more than his previous three combined. Which isn’t to say One Mississippi, Lapalco, and 2005’s The Alternative To Love aren’t worth listening to repeatedly (they offer brilliant bits of seasoned power-pop), or that Brendan didn’t get his share of media spotlight… 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 »

Radiohead, Lil Wayne Nominated For Album Of The Year Grammy

Remember the 50th Annual Grammy Awards? Alicia Keys duetting with the ghost of Sinatra? rapping nonsense? Album of the Year River: The Joni Letters??? It’s easy (and fun!) to make fun of the Grammys, but last year they really deserved it, and viewers voiced their discontent by watching Extreme Makeover instead. For ceremony #51… More »

New Raconteurs Video – “Old Enough”

Jack White was playing patty-cake with the Kills yesterday. Today he and his fellow Raconteurs head out into the woods and play the traveling hobo bards from the album cover of Consolers Of The Lonely.

Jack White Writes A Poem For Detroit

He could have saved himself some time and reprinted “Detroit, Lift Up Your Weary Head! (Rebuild! Restore! Reconsider!),” but White went ahead and penned his own verses to prove he bears no ill-will for the Motor City, even though he relocated to Nashville a couple years ago, has criticized the music scene in interviews (“I… More »

Bonnaroo: It’s A (Photo) Wrap

The tents are collapsed, the recycling collected, the hippies headed to the showers (j/k hippies don’t take showers). Bonnaroo ’08 now belongs to the chemically enhanced memories of its campers, and to message boards worldwide as people bitch about Kanye’s ego. Consider this the scroll-y cork in our coverage of the fest for… More »
