04.13.2011 // JACK WHITE ON THE COVER OR RELIX MAGAZINE

 



Jack White, along with new friends, Danger Mouse, Daniele Luppi, and Norah Jones grace the cover of the most recent issue of Relix magazine. Inside it's all about Rome, the upcoming project from Danger Mouse.

Relix.com:

"Rome is the latest project from producer Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) and frequent collaborator Daniele Luppi. Burton and Luppi traveled to Rome’s Forum Studios—founded in part by the great film score composer Ennio Morricone—and recorded the music straight to tape. For of all its cinematic qualities, what follows is not the soundtrack to an imaginary movie or a homage to the great Italian film composers but a complex nuanced pop record with intensity and darkness featuring help from Jack White and Norah Jones. Alan Light talks with the four musicians about how they brought Rome to life."

04.09.2011 // THIRD MAN RECORDS ANNOUNCES VAULT PACKAGE FOR WHITE STRIPES FANS

 

White Stripes fans rejoice! The Third Man Records upcoming Vault package, number 8, features everything Jack and Meg! Here are the details from Third Man:

"You want the White Stripes. We get it. So for our upcoming Vault package we’re excited to present our fans with peeks at the White Stripes from three decidedly different eras of the band.

First off, we’re pleased to offer Live in Mississippi a recording of the White Stripes’ final live concert from July 31st, 2007 in Southaven, Mississippi. Presented in crystalline audio quality and spread across 2 LP’s pressed on 180-gram vinyl, this recording is (arguably) the band at the top of their game. With the local geography looming large on their minds, the set list is decidedly heavy on the blues and features covers of songs by Robert Johnson, Son House and Leadbelly. The rest of the set includes songs from all six of the White Stripes’ studio albums and the show is offered in its entirety.

Our 7” this quarter features some of the earliest recordings the White Stripes ever made. The a-side is a haunting, stark version of “Signed DC” originally done by the band Love on their self-titled debut record from 1966. The flipside is a breathtaking rendition of the Otis Redding classic “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” Recorded in Detroit in September of 1997 a mere two months after the Stripes’ live debut, this single provides a heretofore unheard era of the band. Although their debut single “Let’s Shake Hands” wouldn’t be released for another eight months, this recording shows how fully-formed the general idea, aesthetic and approach of the White Stripes was from the very start.

The final component of this collection is a DVD entitled Under Moorhead Lights All Fargo Night. Recorded at Ralph’s Corner Bar in Moorhead, Minnesota on June 13th, 2000, this previously unseen footage captures the band immediately following the release of their sophomore album De Stijl on what was their first extended bout of touring across the United States. Performing for only a handful of people, the show is heavy on the band’s earlier material with a spirited cover of Iggy Pop’s “I’m Bored” being of particular excitement and note."

Here are the setlists for both live shows included in the package:

Live in Mississippi Tracklist:

01. Stop Breaking Down (Robert Johnson)

02. Let’s Build a Home

03. When I Hear My Name

04. Icky Thump

05. Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground/As Ugly As I Seem

11. Astro

03.16.2011 // JACK WHITE INTERVIEWED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

 



Here's an excerpt from an interview with the New York Times taken shortly before Jack's solo performance at the South by Southwest Festival:

Q.
When you announced that the White Stripes were officially breaking up, you said, “The White Stripes do not belong to Jack and Meg anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now, and you can do with it whatever you want.” What did you mean by that?

A.
People say, “Why didn’t you do this? Why didn’t you do that?” Or, “Don’t you owe something to somebody, or to yourselves?” All those questions. That line was the idea of explaining to them that at a certain point as an artist, you paint your painting, you do your sculpture or your music, and you release it into the world. You don’t own it anymore. You have no control over it. You put it out there to share with other people. You can only hope for the best.

Q.
Were you thinking literally, that people would take White Stripes tracks, remix them and say, “O.K., they said it doesn’t belong to them anymore.”

A.
It was a side comment in a funny way about the way things are done now with that. But I meant in a more romantic sense.

There's more to this, and you can check it all out HERE.

03.16.2011 // JACK SURPRISES FANS AT SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST FESTIVAL WITH SOLO GIG

 

Upon arrival in Austin, Texas for the South by Southwest festival, Jack White played a small solo set for fans, which included the White Stripes track, Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground. The full story is below, from NME:

"Jack White played a surprise show at Austin's South By Southwest festival this afternoon (March 16).

He played a short solo gig at the Third Man Rolling Record Store, which had been set up in front of the Texas city's Frank's Diner venue.

He was introduced as "Third Man recording artist, Jack White!" to which he replied: "So I'm a Third Man artist now?"

He then played Bruce Springsteen's rockabilly song 'Pink Cadillac' and The White Stripes' 'Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground' to a crowd including The Kills' Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart.

Seasick Steve played after White's short set, having just signed a one-record deal with Third Man. "He signed the desk in my office in black marker pen by way of a contract," White explained.

The Third Man Rolling Record Store opened for business after the performances."

03.12.2011 // JACK WHITE INTERVIEWED BY MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO

 

One of the best radio stations around, 88.3 The Current, out of Minnesota recently posted an audio interview with Jack White regarding various topics:

"Jack White talks to Mary Lucia over the phone about his record label (and store) Third Man Records, collaborating with Wanda Jackson, "throwaway" records, and why comedians should record more albums.

St. Paul, Minn. — Hey Jack how are you doing?

Jack White: Good.

Tell me, let's just assume you have a mission statement for the Third Man Records enterprise. What did you initially think when you started this whole thing? What did you want to do?

It was all baby steps, it wasn't really a big master plan. It sort of fell into itself with tiny steps. But the main thing that became our concern was to get tangible music into people's hands.

Kids would come to shows and we would be selling a vinyl record at the merch table and people would pick 'em up and ask what they were, and it was the saddest thing to all the musicians. We all thought "that's just terrible" and then we would hear these statistics that 97 percent of high school kids have never gone to a stand-alone record store in their lives. It's just very sad.

So when we were opening the label and starting to re-release out of print records of mine -- that was the initial idea -- I said "Why don't we have a record store in front of the shop in case anyone wants to come in, and we'll buzz 'em in and sell them a record?" We thought it would happen a couple times a week or something. But when we opened, we had 300 people every day to shop. So it became a bigger and bigger thing, and the place just expanded from there out. The big mission became to put the tangible music in people's hands."

03.09.2011 // BEHOLD THE THIRD MAN RECORDS ROLLING STORE

 

If you see this bright yellow truck in your city consider yourself lucky. It's Third Man Records... on wheels!



Here's an article about the Third Man Rolling Store from Spinner:

"Consummate multi-tasker Jack White has a new project that will debut at SXSW, but it's not a band as you might expect. The man who recently broke up his most famous act, the White Stripes, has unveiled a vehicle for his Nashville-based Third Man record label that has been customized into a fully functional shop called the Third Man Rolling Record Store.

The bright-yellow truck has been equipped with a microphone and turntables for guest DJs to spin records inside the store, and a state-of-the-art sound system for bands to hook up, plug into and rock outside. Then there's the merch itself, a mix of limited-edition Third Man vinyl releases, Rolling Record Store t-shirts, tote bags and drinking accessories. At SXSW, the store is expected to host musical performances (including some surprise appearances), guest DJs and a slew of exclusive vinyl, such as four different tri-color releases. Following that, the store goes "on tour" to other upcoming festivals and concerts."

Also, the Third Man Record Rolling Store has an official Twitter account which you can find HERE.

02.16.2011 // MEG WHITE MATTERS AND HERE'S WHY

 

Great article recently posted online by the AV Club on Meg:



"When Jack White announced two weeks ago that The White Stripes were no more, my Twitter and Facebook feeds were evenly split between people mourning the loss of one of the most exciting, entertaining rock bands of the ’00s, and people shrugging the news off, saying, “Well, Jack White has half a dozen other bands to fall back on.” Me, I’m a mourner. I’ll grant that Jack White has stayed plenty busy between White Stripes albums: As the honcho of his own Nashville-based indie label/retailer Third Man Records, as the producer of various retro-rock and roots-music albums released by Third Man, and as a full partner in the bands The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. And no doubt White could step into a studio tomorrow and record a solo album representing the principles of simplicity and spontaneity that The White Stripes stood for.

The real question here is: What does Jack White miss by not having his “sister” Meg on drums? Even people who like The White Stripes often treat Meg’s primitive drumming, murmuring voice, and alien stage presence as a running joke. Mightn’t a musical separation from Meg be liberating for Jack?"
