The Dead Weather - Horehound

by Zane Ewton

.
In the beginning of rock, all-star musicians have always collaborated outside of their established bands. Labeled as supergroups more as a marketing ploy than anything else these bands might stick around for an album or two. Ego eventually busts them up. The best supergroups form organically, the worst might as well be cooked up in a marketing meeting.

The Dead Weather is our newest supergroup. A combination of the talents of vocalist Alison Mosshart (The Kills), bassist Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs), guitarist Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and a drummer/producer in Jack White. The band and this record came together in a few, short months.

White produces the record with the same anti-technology commitment that influences his other bands. The lo-tech, rock band playing in a room approach is not going to get old. At least when done right. Doing it right depends on the songs and the performances. Tracks like "Cut Like a Buffalo" and "Treat Me Like Your Mother" are blasts of rock and roll with a texture you can feel through the speakers. Like being hit with a hammer wrapped in sandpaper. It feels so good.
