Jack White/ Alison Mosshart- The Dead Weather.

. Thursday, March 12

Not content with being in The White Stripes/ Raconteurs/ Electric Six (Remember that?), producing Loretta Lynn and working with Beck, Jack White has branched out again. The Dead Weather features Dean Fertita from Queens of the Stone Age, Jack Lawrence from Raconteurs/Greenhornes and best of all Alison Mosshart of The Kills.

To celebrate the opening of the Third Man recording studios in Detroit last night around 150 fans, family and friends attended the Third Man Records grand opening event and exchanged their letter-pressed invitations for limited edition 7" vinyl pressings of The Dead Weather's debut single "Hang You From The Heavens" (with a cover of Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric?"). The Dead Weather hand painted each of the 150 7" records that also included a different photo booth strip of the band members. Downloads of these two songs are now available exclusively through iTunes. The band then performed their very first show.

Both tracks are full on garage rock assaults reminiscent of both the early White Stripes material and The Kills album 'Keep On Your Mean Side'.

Third Man recordings hope to release Dead Weather's album 'horehound' in June.
