11.23.2007 // DOWNLOADS BACK ONLINE - NEW SHOW ADDED

 

Well, it appears I may have found a new home for the media on the downloads page. I am putting it back together in stages, so right now, the only new item that is up there is an old interview/performance that the band did on WDET in Detroit all the way back in 1999. If you only grab one track from this session, get Dead Leaves. This is an early version of the hit single, which did not appear on an album until White Blood Cells.

As long as there are no hiccups with this batch of downloads, I will start adding new material to the page. If all goes well, I will start adding new shows regularly.

11.16.2007 // CONQUEST SINGLE AND B-SIDE INFO

 

Seems Jack and Meg have been busy as of late. Here's some exciting news from the Official White Stripes Newsletter:

"The White Stripes have been busy making a video for "Conquest", their third single. Directed by prolific music videographer Diane Martel, the video was shot over two days in Artesia, California. Filmed with a visual urgency that brings the song's Spanish themes, frantic horns and compulsive pounding rhythm to life, the video follows an explosive - if unconventional - love story that pits man against bull in the ultimate conquest. To make his performance as authentic as possible, Jack White trained extensively with famed bullfighter Dennis Borba. The video will premiere on MTV on November 26th and will be available on iTunes from November 27th.

"Conquest" will also be released as a single; stunningly packaged and featuring three exclusive new tracks across three 7" vinyl formats - one black, one white and one red colored vinyl. Jack and Meg recently recorded the new tracks with Beck, who co-produced all three tracks during a recording session in his living room and also contributed vocals and piano to "It's My Fault For Being Famous" and slide guitar on "Honey, We Can't Afford To Look This Cheap".

Inspired by the "Conquest" video, each single will also include a Mondo Toro trading card featuring the legendary, near-mythical matadors El Sloth, El Bianca Rosa and El Perdador. Despite being from early 1900's Spain and Portugal, these bullfighters look strangely familiar. US copies of these singles will also include a different poster with each release.

These vinyl singles will be released in the US on December 18th and in the UK on December 31st. Full track listings are listed below:

7" One (Black vinyl)
A: Conquest
B: It's My Fault For Being Famous

7" Two (White vinyl)
A: Conquest
B: Honey, We Can't Afford To Look This Cheap

7" Three (Red vinyl)
A: Conquest (Acoustic Mariachi Version)
B: Cash Grab Complications On The Matter

Digital Maxi Single (US only)
1. Conquest
2. It's My Fault For Being Famous
3. Cash Grab Complications On The Matter
4. Honey, We Can't Afford To Look This Cheap
5. Conquest (Acoustic Mariachi Version)

10.29.2007 // A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS?

 

If anyone has ventured over to the downloads page, you would have noticed, the downloads are... well, down. The very nice guy who let me store the media on his college account (so I didn't have to pay for the huge bandwidth fees) has graduated. So, I am back at square one for the time being. I am looking for alternative ways to store the media, so I can put them back up for download. I can't store them here because the cost would be through the roof. Anyway's, I am asking you all for a little help. Do you know anyone who would be willing to host my media for me? It would be greatly appreciated. If someone would be willing to do this, I will vow to update the downloads page on a more frequent basis for all you crazy White Stripes fans.

If you can help, please shoot me an email. Thanks!
