Jack White spoke to the Onion Av Club and had this to say about spending more time (only 3 weeks!) recording the new White Stripes record Icky Thump than any of their previous offerings:
"[It's] probably because, like most of our records, it was half-written in the studio right before we pressed 'record.' That always lends a sense of urgency and immediacy to the songs . . . I like to work under those conditions."
Maybe Jack should have a talk with Axl Rose? You can read the rest of the interview here". Speaking of the White Stripes, you can enter for a chance to win a "meet & greet" with the band, VIP tickets to their show to see them perform live in Anchorage, Alaska. Details here.
