6/10 Phil 28 November 2006
The White Stripes are back with a new single. I always thought these were a tad over rated and since De Stijl they've been a bit rubbish aside from the odd song. Elephant was really rubbish, come on you can admit it now..... good sleeve mind you. As has the new single funnily enough with Meg playing kettle drums with some kids. So what do I think of the new single? Surprisingly I think it's fantastic. An enormous slab of catchy blues filled pop with hoards of piano filling up the air. Tremendous stuff indeed. Bizarrely enough there's a 12" which has a High Contrast (Drum 'n' Bass) mix of Blue Orchid which was a total surprise to me. It works quite well oddly enough and we have a white label of it for you collector type folks....

8/10 Benxamin

The song is getting a lot of play on Internet radio channels of late. I picked-it up at the local shop without knowing this was the one I've been hearing. Meg's drumming is impetuous and simultaneously the laziest I've ever heard. Goes perfect with the spare guitar and lyrics. Finally, the back of this 7' has fantastic deco-inspired lettering and borders all done in red, white and black, of course.
