Product Description

CD Description

Horehound is the debut from The Dead Weather and is the first record to be recorded and released via Jack White’s Third Man studios and record label in Nashville, TN.
The rock four-piece, consists of celebrated musicians Dean Fertita (Queens Of The Stone Age), “Little” Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Alison Mosshart (The Kills) and Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs).

BBC Review

Solidly cemented as the most motivated man in rock, Jack White still seems keen to demonstrate his admirable ability to seemingly do whatever he likes, with whomever he likes. Now, sounding like a bunch of frayed and unwashed circus escapees who have set up their own goat hide tent in the corner of a New Orleans graveyard, The Dead Weather is his latest side project, which came into being during some jam sessions following a Raconteurs tour last year.

Sadly for us, White has made perhaps the first real clanger of his polymath career by recruiting Alison Mosshart of The Kills to take on vocal duties while White himself is relegated to some fairly rudimentary tub thumping. Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age and Jack Lawrence from White's 'other', other band The Raconteurs make up a quartet of suitably roguish looking carney demons.

I Cut Like A Buffalo is a stand out track with a sleazy throbbing riff that's meatier than an Argentinean parrella stand. An out-of-control church organ lurches between the guitar squelches while White, on a rare excursion onto lead vocals, threatens us repeatedly with the question, ''Is that you choking, or are you just joking?''.

The venom of the rest of the tracks, however, are diluted from gaucho bonfire to granola bar by Mosshart. Her thin voice works for the more ethereal creations of the Kills but here, as she morphs into her alter ego 'Baby Ruthless', her vocal abilities struggle to move beyond that of irritating adolescent yelping against a fearsome backdrop of swamp blues. It's a big job, and Mosshart is out of shape for it.

New Pony (from 1978's Street-Legal) is a strange choice for a Dylan cover: a mildly diverting delta funk reworking of Bob's musings about wanting to shoot his horses that doesn't quite convince. What wouldn't we give to have heard White and Lawrence give a more carnivorous Dylan track a la Gotta Serve Somebody a going over here?

Yet even something that comes dangerously close to treading slimy Mississippi water still has enough guttural charisma to entertain, despite some serious flaws. It sounds like they had a blast making it, though listening to this only makes the impatience for a new White Stripes offering even more feverish. --Robert Crossan

Format: Audio CD
Jack White continues once more to reinvent himself, The White Stripes are blues punk simplicity, The Raconteurs are musicianship at its very finest with its classic electric blues rock. His new project The Dead Weather are dark gothic blues rock that hooks you in and there is no chance of escaping. Horehound is an album that keeps you on the edge, not allowing you to get comfortable. Album opener 60 Feet Tall is cool blues rhytm that twice explodes into fury and one of the best tracks. Mind you every track is a winner, well this album may be straight out blues rock thrash such as the jarring Dylan cover New Pony there is also lots of groove, something not really seen with White's other projects, notable tracks are I Cut Like Buffalo with talk of cutting records across throats and the synth stomper Treat Me Like Your Mother with oedipal overtones, just one example of the theme of dark & dangerous that is portrayed across the whole album. Rocking Horse is the track most resembelent of the White Stripes circa Icky Thump era, perfect example of how good White and Mosshart sound together when both on vocal duties. Bone House with its lyrics of building a house out of bones and putting hearts in vaults,is not an album of sunshine and is Mosshart's finest moment. 3 Birds which is an instrumental, a possible soundtrack for a western from hell. No Hassle Night might be the less memorable track on the album but is still an excellent all out assault on your listening experience with a grinding Little Jack bass line at the forefront.

Format: Audio CD
Somehow when i heard about the coming together of Jack White and The Kills Alison Mosshart i was alot more excited than if it was going to be another Raconteurs record and thats not because i don't like The Raconteurs (for the record i do), its just that ever since i saw the footage of white and Mosshart singing together on stage when The Kills were the support band for The Raconteurs, you could see the connection between the two and sure enough they decided to collaborate, first it was only going to be one song, but in typical White fashion they did a whole album.

But with Horehound White and Mosshart aren't the only ones who contribute as Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs,The Greenhornes) and Dean Fertita (touring member with Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs) also play their part with Lawrence on Bass and Fertita on Guitar, they also both contributed to the songwriting on the album, so its simply not Jack White and friends this is a full band with everybody contributing. White handles Drums for the record as well as sharing vocals with Mosshart on a number of tracks.

Horehound was recorded in two weeks and has its rough edges but is all the better for it, especially in this day of over produced records. Mosshart vocals really suit the sound and can be quite haunting at times, The brillant Rocking Horse being a good example. The stand out tracks are opener 60 Feet Tall, I Cut Like A Buffalo, No Hassle Night and 6 minute album closer Will There Be Enough Water? The single Treat Me Like Your Mother is brillant as White and Mosshart trade vocals, There is also an instrumental track 3 Birds which shows off the fine sound this band has.

Horehound won't sell in White Stripes numbers nor will it get much radio play but the people who do take the chance on it will be glad they did, the hope being Whites name will draw them in.

Bought this on the strength of Jack White's back catalog with the White Stripes and The Raconteurs.
I'd seen the Kills on TV (Glastonbury) and was impressed with Alison Mosshart's moody & raunchy delivery in the style of PJ Harvey.

This fusion seems so natural - almost like the 4 members had been waiting for this to come together.
The sound takes me back 30-40 years and yet sounds so fresh.

If you can't get to see the band live then get this album - you won't regret the investment.
If you can get to see the band then get the album 1st - it makes the live experience even better!
If you're anything like me you'll be hooked and waiting with baited breath for the new material.

If you like your music dark, riff-based & with a raw edge, then this album is definately for you. Inevitably there's a mix of The White Stripes with The Raconteurs, which equals The Dead Weather.....but there's nothing wrong with that!
All the tracks are strong - no throw-aways here. There's the sound of real analogue instruments (digital effects & software don't get a look in....Goody!!).

Horehound is the album you should own. Now!

Saw this band on "Later" & was very impressed, so I ordered the cd from Amazon, reminds me @ times of Led Zepplin, Alison's voice is great & Jack's drumming is very good, would have been nice to see Jack on the guitar but never mind, a great first album,hopefully they will make another one.Horehound Mike London.

This LP sounds so so good on vinyl. The best LP I've heard in a looong looong time. Played this album 3 times already & I haven't even had it 24 hours. Will be buying another just incase I damage/play to death this one. Very phat full sound. A shame new bands dont record in analogue, it sounds so much more natural.

A good mixture of guitars & keyboards, with some excellent vocals & some itchy drumming. More of the same please.
