ICKY THUMP

I've got The White Stripes' ICKY THUMP on my digital turntable right now. It's easily their best since John Peel died, for sure. And, at times, their weirdest. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

Sounds like Jack White's taste in all things Jimmy Page has finally reached PRESENCE, too. And that's reminded me of what might have been the greatest piece of rock criticism I ever came up with and never wrote down - asked about Meg White's drumming, I replied "it's like a metronome set to John Bonham". Plus, she's like the Sphinx, only with a really great rack.

Oh, and sorry for blogging so erratically recently: blame an unlucky confluence of an annoyingly slow computer at home, real life and overtime at work.
