Here at last is the legendary Hardest Button video. Which I confess I’ve never seen up until now. Not entirely bizarre though; I wasn’t online quite as much back then as I am now, and I most certainly could’t have caught it on TV, although I heartily wish I had. It would have made me very happy at the time. Seeing it now makes me happy too. As much as I appreciate everything Jack White does in his career (almost everything, let’s pretend the ICP thing never happened), there’s nothing to compare with the impression Elephant made on me. I think I may have mentioned that before, on numerous occasions. Let’s just say it was a once in a lifetime thunderbolt. Of course I’m always going to be particularly fond of The White Stripes, and Elephant and all the songs on it.
