The White Stripes and the Sound of Mutant Blues
, Omnibus Press
Not just a story of the White Stripes but a detailed history of all the post-Stooges Detroit scene, and complete with the question ‘why would anyone want to live there’. The answer mostly seemed to be ‘because it’s home’.
In this telling, the answer to another question of where the minimalist (in tech terms) urges of the White Stripes came from, becomes obvious. Not so obvious is why it went where it did later.
