Description

Out of the ashes of Toledo’s Henry and June arose the mighty Soledad Brothers. This recording is the Soledad Brothers doing what they did best – houserockin’ blues in full Midwestern malaise. This single was recorded in 1998 at Jack White’s house on Ferdinand Street in southwest Detroit and was the band’s debut release. As key players in a scene of like-minded minimalist garage groups, vocalist, guitarist and master of harmonica Johnny Walker and drummer/future Third Man Records co-founder Ben Swank, were playing shows in Detroit so often, it eventually just made sense for Ben to pay Jack rent and become his roommate. This single features Jack playing a metal snow shovel on the B-side, “Johnny’s Death Letter”.
