Astro, The White Stripes, 1999
This is from the White Stripes first album, kind of typical of their sound at the time. At the time they were exploring the possibilities of just how noisy two people in a home studio could be. The album was a little bit too samey-samey, especially compared to the diversity of their later work. It did include a couple of really sharp covers, but mostly a lot of garage rock like this. The video is also from an early show, circa 1999. Jack White is an unbelievably fierce live performer. He plays like a demon. I saw him play with the Raconteurs and I would go on a killing spree to see the White Stripes.
