New Set of Stripes

The Raconteurs Jack White's musical career is evolving. This time he's coming to Fuji Rock with The Racounters. The sound is basically the same; acapella vocals, acoustic guitar strumming and slapdash drumming. The backing band, composed of White's hometown Detroit friends, is heightened by the presence of outstanding of guitarist/vocalist, Brendan Benson. Many say the group's debut album Broken Boy Soldiers is effin brilliant, and there's no need to tell a Fuji Rock audience about the magnetism of White's live performance: his performance was festival highlight in 2004. If you're wondering what's in a name; a "raconteur" is someone delights in telling anecdotes, generally accepted as being a compliment, ie "he's such a witty raconteur".
