On the heels of Jack White announcing the first new Raconteurs album in 10 years and two new songs coming in the latest 3rd Man Vault (thanks, Mike), Stereogum has a story about a cassette Ben Blackwell found with Jack White sharing vocals on a cover of Blondie’s One Way or Another from 1997:

King Khan and the Shrines played the Revolution Oktoberfest and a friend who saw them claimed how he had never heard of them and how good they were. I immediately remembered that it is has been way too long since I delved deep into the self titled album of King Khan and the BBQ Show. Here is a tasty lick from that:

Sorry about the drought of posts lately, I’ve been enjoying looking at the poster image of a creepy look on a jumping B*Witched girl when you first pull up the site. Well, to add to a previous post, if you haven’t been keeping up with the Number Ones feature from Stereogum, here are some gems I have found:
- A Dave Clark Five number one, Over and Over, was a cover of this great version.
- The Byrd’s Turn, Turn, Turn was recently, decently covered by My Morning Jacket.
- The story behind the popularization of the McCoy’s Hang on Sloopy is fantastic.
- More to come.
For whatever reason this song came up and I realized I have never seen this video. It is so dated, even for the 90’s. Turtle necks, bob hair cuts, denim… It is just so Irish and 90’s and ridiculous I had to post this.
