2012 – Number 17: Sixteen Saltines

A cracking single from Jack White, the 21st century Jimmy Page with the obligatory scorching guitar riff.

Sadly I missed the resulting tour which saw him alternate between an all male (see here) and all female band (seen on the next track) from night to night. I got to see the White Stripes a while ago at Brixton and the audience was probably the most diverse I have ever been in, from screaming teenagers to pensioners with effulgent beards glowing in the darkness. A fine evening.

  1. Coincidentally, following neatly on from Mr White comes this gem from the indie six piece from Brooklyn (doesn’t really narrow it down much does it?). Enjoy!
