an american band i had never heard of, the white stripes, are getting rave reviews here as they tour thru the country. playing mostly small clubs, but selling out quickly. i heard them featured on bbc radio on the drive in to work a few days ago. the buzz is likened to what oasis was getting when they were starting out. they’re a brother-sister duo from detroit that plays a stripped down, old-skool blues-rock. just vocals, guitar, and drums(sister). i’m not too keen on the red n white outfits, but if they rock, who cares really. i discovered that they’ll be playing in st louis later this year at the creepy crawl. pete, check em out for me.
