The Dead Weather - Hang you from the Heavens


Jack White’s latest super group has arrived, this time in the form of The Dead Weather. The band features White on drums and vocals, The Killssinger Alison Mosshart on vocals, Queens of the Stone Ages' Dean Fertita on guitar and The Raconteurs Jack Lawrence on bass.
Debut single ‘Hang you from the Heavens’ is down and dirty, it’s got trademark sounds from all involved and conjures dreams of sweat pits and dark rooms with feedback filtering through scuzzy amps and a long haired bands doing it just because they feel like it.
That’s exactly what it is; maybe it’s not best suited for the time and might tear holes in a few skinny jeans and but it certainly makes you want to pick up a guitar and piss off your neighbours.
It’s not for the faint hearted with Mosshart and White screeching, “I’d like to grab you by the hair, and hang you up from the heavens,” but rock n roll never was.
New album ‘Horehound’ is released on July 13th.
