    Oué, toujours deux ;)

    One of a new breed of back-to-basics rock acts to emerge from Detroit, Michigan,
    USA, the White Stripes comprises enigmatic bass-free duo Jack White (b. John
    White, Detroit, Michigan, USA; guitar/vocals) and Meg White (b. Detroit, Michigan,
    USA; drums). The Whites, variously assumed to be brother and sister or husband
    and ex-wife, but both denied, formed their new band in 1997. Judging from their facial
    looks they probably are brother and sister.

    Jack had previously played guitar in garage rock band the Go, but his new project's
    musical output is equally informed by folk blues, country 60s Britpop and Broadway
    show tunes. The Whites' striking stage presence, dressed in minimalist red and white
    outfits, is allied to their thrilling grasp of the rudiments of timeless rock music. The duo
    released 1997's debut 7-inch single, "Let's Shake Hands", on the Italy Records imprint.
    After one further single ("Lafayette Blues") for the label, they relocated to the leading
    independent Sympathy For The Record Industry, debuting with the single "The Big Three
    Killed My Baby". Their self-titled long-playing debut garnered immediate praise, mixing
    astute cover versions (Robert Johnson's "Stop Breaking Down Blues" and Bob Dylan's
    "One More Cup Of Coffee") with some devastating originals.

    By the time of the following year's De Stijl, named after the Dutch abstract art movement
    led by Gerrit Rietveld, the media buzz surrounding the White Stripes had reached new
    heights. Of particular note was the duo's incredible reception in the UK, where their music
    was lauded by a wide range of media outlets including The Daily Telegraph, The Sun and
    even Radio 4's Today programme, not normally known for its liberal music policy. The
    influential John Peel was quoted as comparing their importance to that of Jimi Hendrix and
    the Sex Pistols. The dispute here is that both these acts were originators, whereas the
    Whites are very good interpreters. There are just too many shades of early Kinks, the Doors,
    Television and late 60s American garage/punk bands to warrant a major place in twenty-first
    century rock history. At least the Whites went some way to justifying the media hype
    surrounding them when they released an excellent third album, White Blood Cells.

    White Stripes record their stuff on an 8 track because they don't like what technology is
    doing to music these days. ( thanks to Taz for this info )
