Surely it must be a singular experience to work and perform with someone like Jack White, who drums for this particular band. “It’s a fucking roller coaster; it’s fantastic to collaborate with anyone that has a million ideas a minute. so to stand there in front of him on stage is weird for me: ‘How are you sitting down?
’ I would spend a lot of time singing at him, trying to get him up [from the drums].” It has been a while, however, since the band has actually toured.
They chose the name The Kills because it ‘could be from any decade’.
They love touring, and have huge stamina for it, sitting on pavements drinking gin, getting tattoos, playing pool, rocking out small-capacity dives and constantly pulling poses (now published as a book by photographer Kenneth Cappello called ).
Four years since I don’t think any kind of break can fuck with 11 and a half years, you know? It’s a show and I’m a performer and an artist and I’m not just gonna show up in sweat pants If I were going to do a book on The Kills and hired a photo researcher to delve into your past, would I find a photo of you in sweat pants? He was listening to a lot of Roxy Music and Grace Jones, and I was just surrounded by that Southern blues world.
But I didn’t see him for a month at a time or two months at a time.
Mosshart is buried deep in the Kills masters, perfecting the next album.
And according to the singer, the rest of the Dead Weather are “on different corners of the planet.” For now, is all we get from the band.
The White Stripes was comprised of husband and wife, Jack and Meg White.
People say that the performances are kind of like watching a private conversation—and we haven’t played a show in a while. Do you think it was harder for Jamie since, at the same time, he’s gained this notoriety for something besides music? Sometimes that gets more attention than the actual music; the progression from album to album. “The Kills are too cool.” There’s been an on-and-off relationship with the music press that loves us and then hates us then loves us again.
Was he cool with the Dead Weather or was he a little jealous? [Jack Lawrence], Dean [Fertita], Jack, and I didn’t sit down decide to be in a band together or do two records or tour the world. Do you worry that the culture of The Kills is sometimes seen as more important than the music.
I think he was just surprised that it went on and became a real thing, as we all were. It was just one of those things where, if something’s working like that, you have to do it. Obviously none of us needed a second job—or a fifth job, in Jack’s case.
The single (“Satellite”) builds to this wall of sound, with a gospel choir. And there’s even a piano ballad (“The Last Goodbye”). I was writing a certain type of song—a really American song.
