Icky Thump

Stereogum have got hold of a copy of the new White Stripes video and it's bloody brilliant. A song named after a Yorkshire colloquialism, Meg as a one eyed prostitute and Jack as a drunken gringo. Honestly, what more could you ask for? Social commentary on US immigration policy? Well, there's that too with this brilliant verse:

"Well, Americans,
What, nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant too.

Who's using who?
What should we do?
Well you can't be a pimp
And a prostitute too."

it always amazes me what a lovely noise those two can make & that video is excellente!

I love the video, saw it for the first time on television this morning and it looks stunning. As does Meg. Ahem.

Thanks for dropping by Merz. Appreciate it.
