Album Review: The White Stripes - 'Under Great White Northern Lights' (Third Man/XL)

The White Stripes - 'Under Great White Northern...

As (mostly) fun as The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather have been, boy does this little DVD/Live album package makes you miss The White Stripes something rotten. The beautifully shot doc follows the band’s 2007 Canadian tour, and it’s a...

Alicia Keys and Jack White

Alicia Keys and Jack White

Simply put, the most bangin’ Bond theme ever, not to mention the best thing Jack’s done in ages. With more sex and swagger than is probably decent, he and Alicia kick the new 007 franchise up another notch, teasing and rising into a desperate...

The White Stripes

Not many bands could get away with covering a song over 50 years old and making it sound fresher than a daisy spritzed with Febreze, but then again, not many bands have Jack White as their frontman (let’s ignore The Raconteurs for a mo, eh?)....

The White Stripes

It seems everyone’s second-favourite member of The White Stripes thinks journalists are lazy. “Even in the age of Google, they don’t do any work to get the facts right. Any time I pick up a music magazine, I assume 90 per cent of it is...

The Hentchmen with Jack White, Hentch-Forth.Five

The Hentchmen with Jack White, Hentch-Forth.Five

Jack White has recorded with close to 8,000 bands – give or take. At one time, no-one was allowed to work in Detroit unless he produced/played guitar/added voodoo sex ‘vibes’. The Hentchmen are one such band. The trio were already well known...

The White Stripes: Icky Thump

Some people labour under the misconception that, for Jack White, The White Stripes are a bit of a drag; a self-set challenge to make rock’n’roll that’s as sexually charged, ornately textured and brilliantly primal as humanly possible, all...

The White Stripes: Cannery Ballroom, Nashville,...

For a good few years now Jack and Meg White have traversed the globe, channelling the spirits of John Bonham, Howlin’ Wolf and Dolly Parton into a two-strong maelstrom, teaching bands with considerably more members and considerably younger...

Ah! Jack’n’Meg. Welcome back. Yes, of course we’ve missed you. Nice threads, by the way. No, you don’t look like a tinker’s purse at all. So you’ve got a new song, then? It’s called ‘Icky Thump’, is it? Interesting. Well, it...

The White Stripes : White Blood Cells

The White Stripes : White Blood Cells

As nu-metal bands proliferate at a rate that usually requires a visit from Rentokil, the unconverted could feel swamped by the tide of unhealthy mental filth rising up the charts. It's an unprecedented cosmic kindness, then, that for every band...

Exit Festival, Serbia and Montenegro : Petronaradin Fortress, Novi Sad, Friday July 8 – Sunday July

Exit Festival, Serbia and Montenegro :...

It’s almost painfully ironic – the day after London gets hit by a terrorist attack, NME jumps on a plane to previously war-torn Serbia, almost 10 years to the day after the Srebrenica massacre left almost 8,000 dead in neighbouring Bosnia....
