show of the year - Pulp @ RCMH
and here’s what we stuffed in the past
Gone is Meg and her boobs, so are the good, but not that crazy good side project band pals (Raconteurs, Dead Weather, whatever that Rome thing was). What remains is rock n roll’s savior, Jack White, who’s looking more and more like Robert Smith these days, but still sounding a lot like a junior Robert Plant. Jack never really needed anybody. He’s a enuff of a musician to equal the talent of 1,00000,9022002,29 musicians. It’s true. Now he’s fully at the center of attention, and anyone who pays attention to whatever Jack White does (which should be everyone), is paying attention to how super duper his first official solo album Blunderbuss is be. It’s basically a White Stripes album, with less of an edge, but with a fuller sound, and that also describes what one of his current concerts is like. Somehow we didn’t get the pleasure of his bouncy babes backing band, but his male band did a solid enuff of a supporting job to keep the focus on Jack and his shipmanshow. The new songs sounded newlicious, and the old ones, like we said, had less of an edge, but had a fuller sound with the help of that backing band. But the thing about the new ones is be that they already feel like the old ones, which means they epic classic awesomesss!!! Which means the show was epic classic awesomessss!!!!

Adam Graham Parsons of the Detroit Tigers Newspaper gots me thinkings after I read over his solid ‘Five songs to remember the White Stripes by‘. I’m (yes, no ‘we’ this time) 900% with you Grahamster on ‘Jolene’ & ‘We’re Going to Be Friends’, but here be some of my choice Stripes’ cuts to remember 9ever:
I came late to the Stripes party, but instantly fell in love with them the very first time I heard this. wish I came much earlier (pun intended???), cause honestly, I woulda given up all 9 of my testicles to have seen em at the Bowery Ballroom (although the Union Square Park show was quite the shaz!!!)
more raw than the rawest raw thing on earth or Uranus. it oozes White Stripes white stripedness from head to mistletoe
makes you feel like nothing AND everything is possible. they own ‘Just do it’ more than Nike does!!
