Leave it to Jack White to always be working, creating, and inventing new ideas. Welcome The Dead Weather, which P&C wrote about quite awhile back before the indie “super group” was getting the kind of traction and talk of late.
The Dead Weather, which features Jack White (The White Stripes and The Raconteurs) opting to hit the kit instead of guitar (and contributing vocals), Alison Mosshart of The Kills (who exudes sexxx) as front woman, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stoneage on guitars, and bassist extraordinaire and P&C love Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes), is creating some pretty heavy, gritty alt rock and P&C is just gushes over the latest White project.
The group, which formed in 2009, will be out all summer in support of their debut The Horehounds, which dropped yesterday in the states. The record, whose lead off single “Hang You From the Heavens” was released in March, has a whole bunch of bangers on it, with Jack White’s presence behind the kit predominant to say the least.
Their latest offering, “Treat Me Like Your Mother”, features Jack heavy on the vocals, which never hurt a soul, really.
So, in honor of The Dead Weather hitting Boston’s House of Blues on Saturday, July 18 (of which P&C will be out in full force), gobble up the band’s second single…and throw your body around, because you’ll want to do just that.
Will P&C see you at the gig?
