I know some of you may only consider them Jack Whites "other band". But these guys are really good especially live. I saw them open for Bob Dylan man what a show(and Bob was icing on the cake). If you can download their version of Nancy Sinatra's song Bang Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down do it. Bad ass thats all there is to say about it

I'm a fan of these guys. I like the way White and Benson work off each other, both in terms of guitar riffs and vocals. Their voices are so starkly different, yet they work so well together. Another thing that also impressed me about them was that White didn't use the band as an excuse to write some fleshed-out Stripes-esque tunes, he used the others' talents to create a completely new sound.

TS: Did you happen to see the Stripes on their Canadian tour?

The Stripes' tour doesn't end until November, so highly unlikely there'll be a new Raconteurs album this year. I'd anticipate a Spring/Summer 2008 release.

In the guitar world article with Jack he said he was in the studio finishing up the new Raconteurs album before he went on the road. But hey whatever I just want it to come out

Ah ok, didn't realise they'd already recorded the material.

In that case, A late-2007 release looks possible.
