Does Anyone Else…

…feel like they really miss The White Stripes right about now?

Those of us who are desperate for some new White Stripes-related material will surely enjoy Richard Russell‘s project, Aluminium, “an album of avant-garde orchestral arrangements of songs by Jack White“, slated for release in October of this year.

Currently you can hear some selected samples of reworked White Stripes songs on the MySpace page for the album. Check out the Four Tet remix of “Forever For Her”. It’s preeeettyyy sweet.

  1. It’s really true. Like the Eminem song goes…a million white rappers who cuss like me/just don’t give a fuck like me/etc. They just might be the next best thing! But they’re not The White Stripes. They’ll be back and better than ever, though.

    I miss White Stripes circa 2002 the most. Union Square. sheesh.

    *mumbles something incoherently about The Raconteurs*

  2. I too miss them the raconteurs really don’t do it for me. I like them but I don’t loven like I love the WS. Come on Jack get the band back together.

  3. I too miss them terribly… I hate the raconteurs, or as my husband calls them ; the RANCOURS. Its funny to mispronounce it, becuz its LAME!

  4. the white stripes are over and it’s for the best.. i miss them too but the last album was totally hot and cold and i’d rather they’d just go away than tarnish the wonderful, perfect memory we could all have otherwise. the incredible tension between jack and meg, which was the fire behind the twosome, is gone and so the band should be over too. and i think the racaontours stink.

  5. I think 2007 will have another WS album and tour. I don’t think it is over and done with. But if it is let’s hope Jack moves on to a better project than the Raconteurs. Go all western and blues on us Jack. We know you want to.

  7. I remember being along side you that night jack dropped his slide and played the last half of death letter on his knees. I really do miss them. Not so happy with the raCANTours, but they seem to be happy with themselves in every possibly way?

    Can SMUG make a band suck so hard?

  8. thee rawkonteurs rule live, but if they make another album i hope jackie white cuts with the brendan benson impersonations.

  9. I got 5 white stripes albums and their live DVD. I saw raconteurs live a month or so ago and they were pretty good. I got the CD and its nothing special but its good. And the White Stripes arent done. Jack said he has already written material for a new White Stripes album. Similiar to Elephant which was actually recorded in two weeks and almost a year before its release. The problem is Meg left to become a model I believe. So I cant say much on who will be drumming. It wont be the same, but in all honestly. Meg isnt much of a drummer. But she has an a certain familiarity with her that wont be there any longer. Watching her play though makes it seem so natural. Like its almost effortless. And how they go together is amazing but Jack is the true talent… And I dont think Meg could really be a model… Sorry. I guess we’ll see what happens.

  10. TheMegWhiteOmelette=Yummy!My own creation.Ya get kinda bored/delirious when your working the grill to pay for school/weed.And yes Meg you can use it for your solo project.

    AHAHAHAHA, thanks for the laugh man. That was some funny shit.

  12. Okay when are we gonna talk about jack’s hair plugs-without the zany get-ups to distract he looks like shit

  13. i just watched live under blackpool lights what else can i say but…
    BRING BACK THE RED AND BLACK PANTS!!!!!

  14. Jack is balding. His hair extensions/tracks are very visible. I am a hairdresser that does extensions and he does have “tracks” laid in his thinning hair with a weave attached to make it look fuller. With that being said I do miss the Stripes.

  15. sure you do. i’m a hairstylist and i’ve seen him in person many times. his straigtened hair is growing out.

  16. jack white bald? He does not seem like one of the guys who can pull off being bald. hope he keeps his hair tracks or plugs.

  17. Well I do not have my own personal photos of the hairplugs (excuse Jack let me have a snap of your balding head) but check out some photos and look at his hairline. He does a great job of hiding it-but not all the time; especially at hot outdoor shows.

  18. Jack White I miss you!!! Come out and play again. Can’t wait to see how you morph yourself for the new album.

  19. Yeah, I have noticed in one sweaty photo of him in i think it was The Sun newspaper (that’s an English tabloid by the way) that he had hair receding at the front of his hair.
