After the July '09 release of The Dead Weather's debut album Horehound
, Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs), Alison Mosshart (of The Kills), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs) have all done us a huge favor by dropping their 2nd album less than year after the 1st. I was fortunate enough to hear several of these songs during The Dead Weather's incredible Saturday night set at Coachella last month but, at the time, I was unaware the songs I didn't recognize were tracks off their soon to be released new album. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I learned Sea of Cowards
would be hitting stores/Itunes in only a few short weeks.
I have major crushes on Jack White AND Alison Mosshart. They're both extremely talented musicians & they both put on a fantastic live show, whether they're performing together or apart. I have seen The Raconteurs twice, The Kills twice AND The Dead Weather twice. Now I just need The White Stripes to go on one more tour & my life will be complete. The last time I had tickets to see The White Stripes in Sept '07, they canceled the 2nd half of their tour due to Meg's "acute anxiety". I was PISSED. I don't blame Jack for moving on with Alison. She kicks ass.
