Chief amongst the complaints about Jack White’s latest side project, The Dead Weather, is that there isn’t enough Jack White. While Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita, and that long-haired guy from The Raconteurs are all talented in their own right, White’s work tends to suffer when he lets other people drive the bus.
White has apparently taken those negative reviews to heart for the video to “I Cut Like A Buffalo”, the latest single from The Dead Weather’s Horehound album, and asked the rest of the band to stay home.
Directed by White and filmed at his own Third Man Studios in Nashville, the video finds the singer instead presiding over an army of redheaded, knife-wielding, belly-dancing assassins. The video is visually arresting, and I’m sure White had plenty of fun making it, but how about a new White Stripes album already? Just saying.
