BLACK BAT LICORICE – JACK WHITE

Jack White has become sort of a modern guitar icon, referencing the past and time travelling it forward to the ears of the future, a traditional blues spaceman if you while, and this is part of the many reasons I find it very difficult not to love Jack White.

From his second full length solo record ‘Lazaretto’ is the track ‘Black Bat Licorice’. The track itself is this ever evolving piece of music which presents that kind of post modern mania that Jack White has been to seen to explore in his more recent releases.

However, its all about the opening riff to Black Bat Licorice – featuring an octaver type sound and a groove that wouldnt be out of place in a Rage Against The Machine song, the riff somehow feels completely at home in marrachi setting, whilst teetering on the edge of something one could hear on the Adams Family – Now, if that description makes you curious and rightly so, listen to the track here –

15 STEP – RADIOHEAD

It seems hard to remember now, but once upon a time Radiohead were a guitar bearing brit pop band, but in what seems light years ago, it seemed they were slowly abandoning our silly six stringed friend, guitars were featuring less and less on each release, and it felt as if Radiohead were taking the deep plunge into Aphex Twin / Berlin Diskotek territory.

This was until their 2007 release ‘In Rainbows’, not only had Radiohead brought back the prominence of the guitar in this record, but in melding it with their previous electronic exploration, they had found a new use and sonic space for it.

This brings us to track one from In Rainbows ’15 step’. Set upon a 5/4 rhythm which sounds as if popcorn is popping with excitement within your ears comes Jonny Greenwood and his signature telecaster sound. Once again the riff is simple, yet so complimentary – it has this 60’s surf feel, but in the same breath it would not be out of place in a lounge jazz bar.

I could rave on, but as most things Radiohead, its best experienced in seeing them do it live. Watch a live performance on the track here –
