Remember The White Stripes?


Jack White has ruled over the indie rock world in the 21st century, but I think people lose sight of his greatness amidst all of the magazine covers and Coke commercials. De Stijl and White Blood Cells are two of my favorite albums, and while Elephant and Get Behind Me Satan may not be as raw and authentic feeling, they are both pretty awesome in their own right.

I had very high hopes for the Raconteurs album, and honestly, I came away from that very, very disappointed. I guess I'd rather hear a Jack White solo album, or just another White Stripes album.

I'm not sure how much interest there is, but I have quite a few White Stripes rarities (b-sides, bonus tracks, live tracks, etc) that I'd like to share.

In 2000, the White Stripes released a fairly rare Party of Special Things to Do 7-inch. The a-side contained "Party of Special Things to Do," while the b-side held "China Pig" and a cover of Captain Beefheart's "Ashtray Heart."

Also in 2000, the White Stripes recorded a song called "Hand Springs" that, along with a Dirtbombs track called "Cedar Pointe 76," came free with a certain number of copies of a magazine called Multiball. I know... wtf right?

I'm not sure what else to post, and, like I said, I'm not sure if anyone is interested. Drop a comment if you'd like to hear more.

Enjoy.

thanks! I always enjoy coming across some White Stripes I haven't yet heard.
Can't wait to hear the new album

Hell yeah - bring on some more White Stripes/Jack Black. Do you have anything featuring acoustic instruments ALA the Cold Mountain soundtrack? It would seem that such a powerful blues voice would make some great traditional music....

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near
future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Right now it appears like Movable Type is the top blogging platform
available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
