Little Jack Lawrence was recently interviewed by stltoday.com where he discusses what the next Dead Weather album sounds like, his thoughts on Jack White the Drummer and whether or not the new material will be played live before the albums release:|
"Was the Dead Weather formed with the intention of it being a real band, or did you think of it as a side project?
We weren’t in it to start a new band. We were on tour with the Raconteurs, and the Kills were on tour with us. Jack had just finished his studio and wanted to do something, so he grabbed Alison and brought her back here. We were just going to make a 45, but we kept going and all of a sudden had an album. So we said, “Well, we should name this band and do we want to tour?” Everyone was really excited about it, so we just kind of went with it. It was kind of a happy accident.
Jack moves pretty nimbly from one thing to the next. It seems like he operates on the theory that, if it happens, if it happens. In this case, if it didn’t at least you got a record out of it.
Yeah. You just let the music take you where it feels right. I think that’s the way we’ve been doing it. We just inspired each other to keep going. It’s a great band to be in. We’re all loving it."
