The Raconteurs

Many Shades Of Black

The Raconteurs BBC Electric Proms
The contrast between Brendan Benson and Jack White’s songs makes Raconteurs albums a whiplash-inducing peak/trough ricochet, and this BB effort draws the finger, siren-like, towards ‘skip’. Jack’s screaming guitar tries to thrash its way free, but is drowned in grimace-faced blues-soul that’d bore Joe Cocker. Black is wack.
