Jack White started a new band called The Raconteurs consisting of Jack Lawrence on bass, Brendan Benson on guitar, Patrick Keeler on drums and Jack White on guitar and vocals. theyre pretty good. id say its progress for jack white. is this the end of the white stripes or what?

Yeah, just a side project like Doug said. I don't think they're going to last overly long either, from the sounds of things I've read Bendan is starting to realise that he's being over-shadowed by Jack White and is getting kind of jealous.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I saw one of their songs on MTV2(I think). It was good, I liked it.

Jack will probably go back to Meg soon.

I like them. Although I like The White Stripes I wouldn't be bothered if he didn't go back to that, it's Jack White I like more than The White Stripes, Meg doesn't really add anything.

www.theraconteurs.com has a couple of songs and the video for Steady a she goes.
I like them, but prefer the White Stripes. And they don't sound similar. I was going to see them in Liverpool but couldn't get transport. I doubt they'll stay together for long, but it gives Jack a break from the Stripes, and i think it's just a side project too. But they're still good.
I like Brendan Benson's solo work, and think he will work well with Jack.
Jack Lawrence and Patrick shouldn't be ignored though. Without them there wouldn't be a band. I'm a fan of the Greenhornes too.

she adds the drum beat
if i cut off your arms and legs
and wrap you in some fucked-up cocoon,
would you still look at me and say
"you can't catch what you can't see"
well i caught you honey,
like the clap sugar.
what do you think of that?

Lol, awkward so-n-so. What I mean is that she isn't an amazing drummer or songwriter or singer. He could probably make another band or get another drummer and you wouldn't be thinking "yeah, but it's not as good as when Meg was drumming, she's what he's missing". I don't think anyway.

But there's something about her that makes up the White Stripes.
She contributes alot to their quirky nature. I think if they had an amazing drummer then it wouldn't be the same. Her simplistic drumming goes with the simple, raw sound of their music.

p.s. I'm liking what I hear of The Raconteurs Does anyone know when the album is due for release?

Even though it is a "side project," I am sure he's not in a hurry to get back in the stripes.

I think The Raconteurs are awesome. I love Steady As She Goes, and the video is pretty cool. I agree with what you said about Meg. The album is out May 15 as far as I know of.

Anybody see them play Steady As She Goes live last night? It was on BBC3 on some show called Guerilla Gig. I'm starting to really like that song.

Jack White is still with the White Stripes. He should, the racontuers arent going to make it to far. i think they'll put 2 or 3 albums befor they give up.

Oh yeah! I'm excited to hear that, I think it will probably be alot different from white stripes though, But i think it will be just as good. No, I don't think it will be the end of the white stripes, every artist have a spin off band eventually. Its nothing to worry about.

I loved the two songs on the site, but my favourite was definitely Steady As She Goes. I don't reckon The Raconteurs will be together for long; it just doesn't seem to be one of those bands that'll last. I'm so glad Jack isn't leaving the Stripes though.

Hey I just listened to it and it sounds great. Accually i'm only listening to steady as she goes right now but so far it sounds awsome. I'm waiting for this song to finish, so I can listen to the other song....Alright, starting download on Store bought bones...
So far awsome....sounds really cool, the guitar sounds real nice, Its kind of funky bluesy. Very Nice, I think i'll buy the album once it comes out.

I read in an interview that he's already got a few songs lined up for the white stripes which he'll get recorded whenever he gets a spare 5 minutes.

I've heard a few songs. Not as good as The White Stripes in my opinion, just not as original

They're like a less interesting version of Eagles of Death Metal for me though I've only heard the 3 singles. I'll still buy the album.

Today I borrowed the new Loretta Lynn album.

No, it seems to be a side project for Jack. They sound VERY good. Better than the stripes, im afriad to say. Itll be exciting to see how they do.

^I'm still prefering some of The White Stripes songs to what I've heard of The Raconteurs. They do sound good though.
