The Raconteurs – Steady, As She Goes

The Raconteurs Steady As She Goes

‘Steady, As She Goes’ – coolest song of the year as far as I’m concerned. Straight ahead rock ‘n roll. What a surprise to see Jack White show up in a new outfit, band that is, as in The Raconteurs.Jack White’s other band The White Stripes is good – I know there are a lot of people out there who love them. Many people were recommending them to me when they first came out. For some reason though, I am far more interested in and can relate better to The Raconteurs than The White Stripes.

Have you checked out The Raconteurs website yet? I just did and it’s so retro old school that just like their songs it’s cool. Reminds me of the days of Atari and Vic20. If you go to their media page you can listen to two songs – ‘Steady, As She Goes’ and ‘Store Bought Bones’ at present. There’s also videos, photos, tour information and more:

The Reconteurs have appeared on shows here in the UK like Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and on the Guerilla Gig live on bbc3 that was presented by Zane Lowe a couple weeks ago. It’s great to be able to turn on the tv and see these guys playing live – simple old school rock. No frills.
