SUGAR AND SPICE
THIRD MAN RECORDS / ITALY
recorded in the house of jack white, these caustic, filthy blues numbers are a punch to the gut that you’ll thank them for, and the b-side features Jack playing a metal snow shovel: ‘nuff said.
Out of the ashes of Toledo's Henry and June arose the mighty Soledad Brothers. This recording sees them doing what they did best – house-rockin' 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.
