And all of that stuff was no different from Charley Patton playing between his legs at juke joints, or Tommy Johnson playing behind his head.What some people call a gimmick, others will call art.” It is March 2, and Jack White is in a Manhattan hotel chosen, perhaps, because its pale blue colour scheme matches the palette of Blunderbuss.That day, White says, he recorded three songs, including a shit-kicking homage to James Booker called “Trash Tongue Talker”, and embarked on a trajectory that culminates this month with the release of his first solo album, the rich, nuanced and thoroughly entertaining Blunderbuss. v=e TW6y Knm O08 “With The White Stripes, I wanted to have a new blues,” he says.“‘Seven Nation Army’ has become a soccer chant to some people, but to me it’s a blues song, a struggle of one person against the world.The way Jack White tells it – though historically, his relationship with the truth can be a little capricious – his solo career started by accident.For the past three years, White has been inviting musicians down to his Nashville studio to record 45s for his Third Man label; recent visitors have included Tom Jones, The Alabama Shakes, and the Insane Clown Posse.

As well as playing fan favourites such as 'Hotel Yorba' (complete with a searing country violin solo), 'My Doorbell', 'Top Yourself' (from The Raconteurs era) and the incendiary 'Ball and a Biscuit' (recently voted number 1 favourite Jack White song by Rolling Stone magazine) he also included 'Two Against One' from the project with producer Daniele Luppi and Dangermouse which got a great reception, and also helped pace the set and perfectly led the more quiet section of the gig into 'We Are Going to Be Friends'.
