THE WHITE STRIPES continue to go back
in time and share stuff from the archives.

Basement sessions, at Maida Vale Studios in London.

Jack White said: “It was beautifully filmed and the sound
quality makes a performance on a regular TV show sound
like a wax cylinder recording. No host. Thank God.

03:06​ – Party of Special Things To Do
05:27​ – Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)

6 December 2020

Active: 1997-2011

Released: 4 December 2020

AllMusic / Heather Phares says: “The idiosyncratic track list shuffles the pages
of the Stripes’ songbook, bringing new life to their music in the process… It’s clear
a lot of love went into crafting The White Stripes Greatest Hits, and its quirks should
make it all the more endearing to fans and newcomers alike.”
Score: 4.5/5.

Jack White: “I’d make a White Stripes record right now. I’d be in the White Stripes for
the rest of my life. That band is the most challenging, important, fulfilling thing ever to
happen to me. I wish it was still here. It’s something I really, really miss.”

Turn Up The Volume: Two Nation Army, Jack and Meg, made blues famous
again by adding a raw punk-esque energy you simply couldn’t resist. Hail hail!

Two brand new videos for old songs rApple Blossom and Let’s Shake Hands
were created as promo for the greatest hits collection.



Full hits…


An unforgettable memory. The White Stripes in Brussels in 2001 in a 150-cap club.
The gig was phenomenal but talking to Jack White between support act Von Bondies
and the Stripes performance was pretty cool too! Yeah!

THE WHITE STRIPES – Second Album ‘DE STIJL’ Released 20 Years Ago

Old and new albums to make your day…

21 June 2020

Band: The White Stripes (Detroit, US)
Active: 1997–2011
Album: De Stijl – their second LP
Released: 20 June 2000 – 20 years ago

Stereogum writes: “An upstart two-piece garage-blues band from Detroit, one that has a couple of records out on a subgenre-specific indie label, probably will not get the chance to change the world, to capture the hearts of millions… Everyone who encountered the White Stripes in the ‘De Stijl’ era has a “holy shit” story about it. Me, when my roommate Janet brought home a copy of De Stijl and played “You’re Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl)” on the CD boombox in the living room of an art-student flophouse: “Holy shit.” My wife, when she saw the White Stripes open for Sleater-Kinney at the 9:30 Club: “Holy shit.” The White Stripes were bright and bold and haughty and theatrical. They had riffs and hooks and swagger. They stood out. If you heard them once, you wanted to hear more. And if you looked into what they were doing, there was plenty beyond the riffs and hooks and swagger.”

Keywords: Holy shit, one of their best ‘raw and rough’ performances, Jack White shows
how he would turn the blues into a massive 21st Century success, I love Meg, holy shit
Key tracks: You’re Pretty Good Looking ‘For A Girl) / Apple Blossom / Death Letter / Sister, Do You Know My Name / Let’s Build A Home
