Last May JACK WHITE, the hardest working bluesman on this planet, and THE RACONTEURS released a 7-track live EP titled ‘LIVE AT THE ELECTRIC LADY
in New York City and a documentary film featuring the recording of the EP and
an interview with the band.

One of the tracks is a hectic cover of 1977 punk classic BLANK GENERATION
by the infamous NYC outlaw RICHARD HELL (once a member of Tom Verlaine‘s

original guitarist Ivan Julian.

The Raconteurs‘ version is a scorching wall-of-sound explosion.
