This is audio from a live performance Black Milk & band (Daru Jones, AB, Malik Hunter & the homie Bill Sharp) run through quite a few joints live on both sides of this vinyl for a total of 45 minutes of incredible music. If you’ve never caught Black Milk live then you’ve done yourself a serious disservice. Make up for it by listening to this then copping it. Trust me
So…two of my favorite musicians/producers collaborated recently. Jack White (formerly of The White Stripes) and Black Milk. Let me explain, I was a White Stripes fan from jump. When Jack produced the Von Bondies I was like “WORD!”. His side projects with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather are among my favorites. I even saw “Coffee & Cigarettes” partly because I knew RZA & GZA would be in it alongside Jack & Meg White. I’ve also seen “The White Stripes: Under Blackpool Lights” and “The White Stripes Under Great Northern Lights” in addition to “It Might Get Loud” which has been on my Neflix instant queue since it became available. I’m a fan. Obviously.
The story of Black Milk and Jack White getting together @ Third Man Records in Nashville to record and the audio itself is over @ Black Milk’s site. Salute Black Milk, Rosalinda, Daru Jones, AB & Malik Hunter. “Brain” & “Royal Mega” are fuckin’ epic. Cop ’em. DON’T SLEEP!
