Does anyone else really miss this band?

 

My hour long commute home from work today consisted of listening to the majority of their two albums. I hadn't listened to them in quite some time, and it felt very fresh and new, like hearing it again for the first time. Two albums simply isn't enough.

 

I love Brendan Benson. He has an insane vocal range and a knack for writing melodies unlike anyone else in the business. Those are his strengths. His weakness is in his live performance, which comes off nervous, and in his studio production, which typically comes off too polished. When he contributes his songs to the Raconteurs, Jack compensates for his weaknesses and the songs get their full potential. There are so many songs on his most recent album that I think would have shined as Raconteurs tracks. I truly think Brendan performs better in collaboration than by himself (his work with Jason Falker on his first two albums is very noticable)

 

When all this Jack White solo stuff comes to a hault, I'm hoping he and Brendan hit the studio again.

 

 

From Modchat:

 

<JackWhite> KNARFNY: it'll be a second
<ivanapowers> cuppitycake: I third anything you second
<nursejenn> JackWhite: all the local blues musicians get together and jam at his grave
<JackWhite> EvieMay: that's nice, some people are intimidated by those gals but they are the sweetest lassies around
<vbaby74> KNARFNY: I second that... New Raconteurs
<radicaleclectic> JackWhite: lets see that Vault #15 be wacky!!!
<jenyvette> JackWhite: R u in CA for the Conan thing
<97nationarmy> hey jack, is there any chance of you ever coming to Louisville?
<kesa0801> JackWhite: excited to see you on Conan!
<radicaleclectic> JackWhite: was just watching the New Zealand vid with the kids there... like the story telling
<KNARFNY> JACK, WHEN CAN WE EXPECT NEW RACONTEURS?

 

I asked "Second to what?" but Jack didn't answer.... :P

I think that hints pretty good at a second solo album first.

It'll be a second means it'll be a while

I'd put my money on another solo album and another Dead Weather album before a new Racs one.  Just a hunch.  "it'll be a second" is far from a straight answer though.

"It'll be a second"  - maybe Jack is really a vampire/alien/superhero and a second is like 10 years to him :P

I've noticed that in interviews.  Everything with him happens "in a second" or "for a minute".  For example, according to one interview (I think the WTF with Marc Maron one), he was accepted to seminary school "for a minute".  Certainly explains TMR's fluid concept of time.

 

That said, I hope that a new Racs album really will be out in no more than a second after the next solo album/tour.

I'd preffer another TDW album just to have it when Alison is still young enough to have  trim to perform in her style :D

Brendan ain't gonna be the beautiful blond to Jack's right forever, y'know.

I mean beauty is really secondary thing, but both Jack and Alison are starting to hit that age when you start to slow down, and IMO it's going to affect TDW more than racs

 

you know beeing frontwoman in tdw is just more stamina - wise demanding :P

It's going to be a very sad day when Jack slows down on stage.

 

Him and Brendan will have an identical stage presence  :lol:

There is a new QOTSA album due out soon, plus a tour, so I doubt TDW will be anytime soon.  Dean's gonna be too busy.
