Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground

Jack White listened to all those old blues album, but he still ended up sounding like Jimmy Page. That guitar, though, is a some kind of plastic, mail-order special from Montgomery Ward. Mean and dirty.

This is someone's old video of a 2002 street show in New York.

Ten Years Gone

Just saw the documentary, "It Might Get Loud," featuring Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White -- yep, all guitarists. Really like Jack White, but Jimmy Page is still amazing.

Magnolia Electric Co.

Jason Molina (Magnolia) has been on my permanent rotation for weeks now. He's often compared to Neil Young. I'd say he's even more melancholic, and more midwestern (without all that California dreamin' shit). Magnolia's on the Secretly Canadian label in Bloomington, IN.
