I know, I know welcome to 1999.....a lot of my friends had commented on the White Stripes back in their club days but I never seemed to catch their shows ( and I ONLY go to club shows, with the exception Dream Theater ) because I was always pre-occuppied. Once the Stripes got popular I pretty much ignored them unless I caught a video on the tube ( and I LOVE White Stripes videos ) but I never really listened to their music.

Happenstance, I got hooked on the song "Doorbell" that has been played on one of the local stations. I love the song because it's perfect for making up my own goofy lyrics.... Anyway, I decided to pick up the album "Get Behind Me, Satan" just for the fun of it......

WOW......really different, simple and very rooted in several American styles......

I LIKE 'EM!!!!

Yeah, I kinda missed them as well, until the "Doorbell" video started playing on TV. I like the sound and picked up that CD the other day.

the White Stripes have one hell of a "motif" going on with the red and white and black thing.....their videos ( the ones I have seen ) have always been VERY eye catching. some of their publicity photography is GREAT...reminds my of the old Hipgnosis stuff from back in the 60's and 70's

man...I am listening to this album right now....holy shit....this is DAMN GOOD STUFF!!!

That's exactly what I said when I heard the song play on the radio, until I saw the video. Interesting sound though. I like it.

"Get Behind Me, Satan" has a very diverse sound....I'll be picking up more White Stripes, that's for sure. I highly recommend track 13, "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely, Yet)" AWESOME!!!! Track Six, "Little Ghost" is also really damn good!!! Hell, the whole album is great.....

Indeed.

heh, first time i hard of the "white stripes" was on that site with the singing kittens. they did "fell in love with a girl" and it was hilarious!!! and the song is like an old fashioned, high energy 60's rock n roll beat...fun!

I kept hearing "Doorbell" on XM 47. I ended up getting all three albums and really like the different sound. I have only been listening to them for the last two months.

When I read the topic, I thought this was going to be about Crest tooth whitening products. I've never heard of the White Stripes.

SERIOUSLY??? What kind of music do you listen to??? ....you might like 'em, I sure as hell do...I'm am more of an Americana and Bluegrass guy....but the Stripes ( who are heavily influenced by such if you listen to their album tracks ) are pretty damn neat....a very diverse sound!!! From tradtional Rock and Roll, Hard Rock to Blues to Gospel...the Stripes have just about everything.
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 4:55:59 AM EDT
I just heard them first last summer.. I had the same reaction.. Definately alot of fun to listen too. especially when we setup camp in the woods.

I found a bunch of live shows on a bit torrent site.. ( band is taper friendly as long as these recording are not sold) If you have broadband, I'll set you up with a couple.

Funny you should mention this... I was just thinking about my doorbell ringing, my doorbell ringing...

Being from the SE Mi area, I must say that I never cared for them. They were so over played and over hyped here in the area...I think that killed them for me.

Correct...she is more along the lines of a percussionist.

don't tell me you don't get the offbeats.....

oh, the beats are "off " alright.

If they'd get a drummer and a bassist they'd be even more killer but it's about more than just beats with them.

Pick up "Elephant" and first listen to "Ball and Biscuit"... Jack White is for real. Great songwriter (listen to the lyrics on both Elephant and Get Behind Me Satan and you'll know what I mean) with a knack for finding just the right sound for that particular song.

The one before Elephant is "White Blood Cells" and while it's very good, it's not quite up to the latest two discs.

I resisted the White Stripes as long as I could - until I heard Ball and Biscuit. I'd been listening to quite a bit of British '60s blues at the time (John Mayall, Cream...) and this fit right in with what I'd been listening to.

I like the two piece bit....I'd love to hear 'em live.....I think Elephant has some live tracks...I am listening to De Stijl right now....Apple Blossom is very Beatles reminiscent and "You're Pretty good Lookin' ( for a Girl )" is defintely heavy on the sixties.

Don't sweat it.... but trust me when I tell you that you have no room to complain...for you see, I used to live with the worst drummer in world. Seriously....you have no idea of lack of percussive talent until you have heard my ex roomie "play" drums....... It sounded like two pissed off cats and a rooster tossed into a burlab bag full of dirty dishes and then tossed into the middle of a goatfuck. He's still one of my best friends ever...but LORDY!!!

I am still traumatized from it......you have NEVER heard anything so awful. Every now and then one of the neighboors would come over when I was washing my Jeep and ask...."So.........(pause)......do you play the drums?"


Oh, God..........they blamed ME!!!!

I thought they were has-been one hit wonders (Seven Nation Army)

That's the only Stripes song I have heard that I cared for *shrug*

Jack White is an interesting guy. Kinda looks like Johnny Depp on the skids. I can't get some of his songs out of my head.

I didn't know until a while ago that he did the Napoleon Dynamite theme song.

Good vids.

Check out the Loretta Lynn album that Jack White produced. It is one of the few country albums I can stand...

You talkin about the rumble between White and the dude form that other Detroit band?

Or somethin else?

I hear White likes to throw down. Dunno if he's any good at it, though.
