    Default The Dead Weather - A.K.A. Jack White's new band

    Jack White's new band...

    "Third Man Records, the imprint on which Jack White releases all of his music including The White Stripes and The Raconteurs, now has a physical location in downtown Nashville. White's new Third Man Records building serves as the company HQ and houses the label's offices plus a vinyl record store, photo studio, dark room and performance stage.

    In celebration of the building's opening, the labelís newest rock outfit, The Dead Weather, delivered their first public performance with a set including songs from their forthcoming album, Horehound. The band, fronted by Alison Mosshart (known to music fans as one half of The Kills) includes The Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence on bass, Dean Fertita from Queens Of The Stone Age on guitar and Jack White on drums and vocals. In addition to playing, White also served as producer on Horehound. Recording took place earlier this year in just three weeks at the newly constructed Third Man Studio, designed from the ground up by White. Third Man plans a June release for the album.

    Around 150 fans, family and friends attended the Third Man Records grand opening event and exchanged their letter-pressed invitations for limited edition 7" vinyl pressings of The Dead Weather's debut single "Hang You From The Heavens" (b/w a stealth cover of Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric?"). The Dead Weather hand painted each of the 150 7" records that also included a different photo booth strip of the band members. Downloads of these two songs are now available exclusively through iTunes."
    So, The Dead Weather are...

    Alison Mosshart [The Kills] - Vocals
    Dean Fertita [QOTSA] - Guitars
    Jack Lawrence [The Raconteurs] - Bass
    Jack White - Drums and Vocals

    2 Tracks are up on their website. They rock pretty hard. Sounds promising.

    I prefer this thread, the other one is in the R/G/W section, which is my least favorite section of the board.

    I have a feeling if I named this thread "The Dead Weather A.K.A. Jack White's new band" this thread would have a lot more people reading it right now.

    EDIT: There we go. That should do it.

    I have listened to both songs twice now. They both kick ass. I love how they chose to do a Gary Numan cover as well.

    I left the songs "as is". The source files were 64mbps/22Hz, so not the most awesome quality available, but listenably alright.
