Jack White

The former White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather/etc frontman and serial collaborator is finally doing his own thing.

Following last year’s demise of The White Stripes, between albums by The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, during a brief hiatus from filming with Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jim Jarmusch and after hook-ups with Alicia Keys, Bob Dylan, Danger Mouse, Norah Jones, Jay-Z, Tom Jones and the Insane Clown Posse (no, really), among many others, pale-faced monomaniacal musician Jack White somehow found the time to knock out a solo album.

Blunderbuss fires off suitably scattershot blasts of White’s back catalogue, with the odd nod to country music capital, Nashville, where this was recorded (and where White lives).

No longer locked up in a room with a bunch of musos, the results are less technical and more enjoyable — as a man playing with himself should be. Ahem.
