White Stripes Party of Special Things to Do

Type:
Single
Release Date:
December 5, 2000
Catalog No:
SP527
Label:
Sub Pop

The White Stripes were already gaining popularity in 2000, but they were just on the cusp of the fame and accolades that would have them being hailed as one of the biggest rock bands in the world. Between the releases of their seminal albums De Stilj and White Blood Cells, the iconic duo released a 7-inch for Sub Pop’s Singles Club series taking on a hero of their own: Captain Beefhear. Jack and Meg White put their minimalist garage rock to the test and find success, reforming Beefhearts freakout classics into blown-out, sizzling modern rock scorchers. In retrospect, we should’ve known Jack White would become a guitar god with tone like this.
