Under Great White Northern Lights

The White Stripes are one of the most prolific and iconic bands of the last decade, and this new documentary The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights looks like a perfect accompaniment to their music, whilst being striking documentary in its own right.

Directed by Emmet Malloy (one half of the Malloy's, who have made loads of music videos for the likes of The Shins, Cold War Kids, Blink-182, Metallica, Santana, The White Stripes, Oasis...and many more). The film follows The White Stripes on their tour around Northern Canada, playing gigs in buses, cafes and doing shows for native indian elders. The film also focuses on the unique relationship between the Jack and Meg White.

No doubt this film will have a great soundtrack and fantastic visual style given the iconic imagery associated with the band.

The film is playing FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY at the Duke of York's this Friday really should go!

This will be Jack White's second screen appearance at the Duke's this yeah after his appearance in the awesome guitar documentary It Might Get Loud!

Here is my one of my favorite White Stripes videos to one of their best songs...Icky Thump (video directed by The Malloy's)

"White American's, What? Nuthin' better to do?/ Why don't you kick yourself out your an immigrant too..!"

and here is my one of the best Jack White he is with old school country singer Loretta Lynn...this Jack White produced album Van Lear Rose is one of the best contemporary country records you will find...its soooo good!

"well sloe gin fizz works mighty fast when you drink it by the pitcher and not by the glass..."
