THE MAKING OF WHITE BLOOD CELLS VAULT #48 DVD TEASER
“FELL IN LOVE WITH A GIRL (ALTERNATE TAKE)”
The White Stripes:
The White Stripes are Jack White and Meg White. Formed in Southwest Detroit in 1997, the acclaimed rock duo released six studio albums with their simple guitar, drums and vocals approach, played countless shows, and created some of the most iconic music and videos of the 2000s. From the third floor attic of their family homestead to “world-renowned” becoming an appropriate descriptor, The White Stripes saw their wildest dreams come true while creating a catalog of music that stands the test of time, leading to the recent release of The White Stripes Greatest Hits
which features staples such as “Fell In Love With A Girl,” “Icky Thump,” and global anthem “Seven Nation Army,” among others.
The Glitch Mob:
The Glitch Mob – the Los Angeles-based trio comprising Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Josh Mayer – continues their forward movement into 2021. Boreta, edIT, and Ooah came together around 2006, passing through various members until settling on this core trio of musicians. Together, they combined their different skills and aesthetics into the compellingly collaged whole that has become one of the most beloved live electronic acts, and distinctive recording artists, working today.
