Jack White & The White Stripes

The White Stripes were an American rock duo formed in 1997 by the couple Jack White (born John Anthony Gillis) and Meg White. The White Stripes rose to prominence in 2002, as part of the garage rock revival scene. Their successful and critically acclaimed albums White Blood Cells and Elephant drew attention from a large variety of media outlets, with the single Seven Nation Army and its now-iconic guitar line becoming a huge hit. The band dissolved in 2011.

The White Stripes used a low-fidelity approach to writing and recording. Their music featured a melding of garage rock and blues influences and a raw simplicity of composition, arrangement, and performance. The duo was also noted for their fashion and design aesthetic which featured a simple color scheme of red, white, and black.

Jack White has had success as a solo artist after the duo disbanded, with two albums receiving wide commercial and critical acclaim. He is a vocal advocate for analog technology and recording techniques. His record label and studio Third Man Records releases vinyl recordings of his own work, as well as that of other artists and local school children. His latest album holds the record for most first-week vinyl sales since 1991. In February 2017 Third Man Record opened its own vinyl production facility, operating eight of the first newly built vinyl presses built in 35 years. The White Stripes have 1 song and 2 albums in the Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 500 lists. Albums you should know:
