Prato do dia (#4): The Raconteurs



No segmento musical, vez por outra surgem bandas paralelas com qualidade à altura dos trabalhos principais de seus músicos. É o caso do Mr. Bungle e do Fantomas, projetos do alucinado Mike Patton, vocalista da saudosa banda Faith No More.


O caso de The Raconteurs é ainda mais raro: a banda supera, em muito, a banda original do vocalista e guitarrista Jack White. Também pudera: por melhor que seja a capacidade de White de criar excelentes riffs de rock, fica difícil sustentar uma banda de rock com uma baterista descoordenada (caso de Meg White) e sem baixo! Estou falando, claro, do White Stripes – que apesar de ser uma banda meia bomba, possui músicas irresistíveis como Seven nation army e The hardest button to button.


Com o The Raconteurs, porém, isso não acontece. Há guitarras, baixo, bateria e teclados, criando um som rock n’roll bem na linha setentista de bandas como The Who, Doors, Beatles e Led Zeppelin. O Led, aliás, é a referência mais gritante, perpassando as diversas faixas do primeiro álbum da banda, Broken Boy Soldiers, um disco primoroso do início ao fim, que começa com a levada cadenciada de Steady as she goes (que lembra de leve os contrapontos que ouvimos num rock brazuca estilo Los Hermanos) e terminando com Blue veins, um blues arrastado daqueles no estilo Since I’ve been loving you.


O segundo disco, Consolers of the Lonely, lançado recentemente, prova que não se trata de uma banda de um disco só. Também é excelente do início ao fim, e já começa com mudanças bruscas de tempo (coisa que adoro) nos primeiros trinta segundos da música homônima.


Os destaques da banda vão para as músicas Broken boy soldiers e Level (confira aqui), do primeiro disco, e The Switch and the Spur, do segundo. Ouçam e vejam se não tenho razão ao desejar que Jack White desista do White Stripes pra dedicar-se exclusivamente ao The Raconteurs... quem sabe assim rola uma chance dos caras pintarem por aqui?

"respirando música, bebendo na sociologia, tragando a cultura e mastigando a cidade".

4rthur disse...

Vc bem sabe que eu nutro um apreço por bandas de tres acordes e dos anos 60-70, mas gosto de White Stripes. Acho que a banda tem seu valor porque ela aparecereu em uma época que eu não sabia nomear uma banda do século 21 que eu respeitasse. Credito eles mesmo sem baixo, mesmo a Meg sendo uma fraca, por isso.

Aí, ele me aparece com Racounters e me faz querer ofecerecer meu primeiro filho pra ele.

Vc já viu o vídeo da música Hands?

BeijA

PS: qdo se sussegar numa cadeira prometo que te escrevo umas linhas mais elaoradas, e ah, moço, e rola uma reciproca sobre os emails.

Sunflower disse...

ah, e eu apoio a iniciativa da samantha, pessoal devia postar uma lista do 69 fuck songs. Seria um cardápio musical afrodisíaco.

Anônimo disse...

Yeah, I like this posting too, Casca. Unfortunately, once again you have failed to tell us WHY...

Something Casca. Anything. Please tell us why. EXPRESS YOURSELF for once and god damn the consequences. What are you afraid of? Me? The others? or YOURSELF????

Anônimo disse...

God damn it Arthur, man. Why don't you ever send me this kind of stuff via e-mail. Now I gotta look it up. Another thing I have missed. Another thing both the Zona Sul snobs and Paulistas failed to tell me BEFORE.

Where is my mother fuckin' brother now? Where is he hiding out at? Such a coward he always was and STILL is...

White Stripes? She can't drum for shit. Also..who in their right fuckin' mind would ever allow a GIRL in a band????? Might as well invite satan himself to perform a catholic mass...

Might as well eat the shit you just dumped into the toilet. Rock is a "priesthood". No chics allowed for the obvious reasons. Ok...some chics are permitted as long as they remain as "solo artists".

You know Arthur man...we dont have a beach here in Charlotte. How do the people "escape" and worship the false god of nothingness like they do on the beaches of Rio???

The fuckin' race track is where they go...

Imagine some stupid and un-inspiring designed cars racing around a track at 250 kpm's. Mulitiply 4 left turns by 300 and you get the idea. Imagine 250 thousand people have orgasims of pleasure as the cars go round and round and round...

Imagine these very same cars deeply imprinted with corporate 500 logos... Go Home Depot!!!!!! Go Du Pont!!!!! Go Budweiser Beer!!!!!!

It's HELL...Satan ruled here last week so I left town. Headed south to avoid the evil. Of course the women complained...


"...Garrett darlin'...what are your plans for the weekend? Are you gonna be with me since I am your one and only????? I know you have others but I am the one you really like...."

Like I said...FUCK THAT!!!!!!!

Funny thing happened the other week...

Some guy brought his old car to work and sell. It was a 1962 Chevrolet Station-Wagon. The car made evry other fuckin' car look horrible. This common car from 1962made us all feel shame while gazing upon it. We mourned for our lost superiorty and future while looking at this car.
For a few minutes we all felt like BRAZILIANS. I also made sure those around me knew THIS. FEEL the SHAME. FEEL the DISGRACE. FEEL ROBBED.

We were the greatest civilization who ever walked the earth but out of arrogant spite, laziness and greed...we opted for the Big Mac...


50 years ago we had half of the world's wealth...50 years ago we had 90% of the world's patents...

Now look at us! Fat stupid demon pigs with no soul. We deserve the worst death. Cancer reigns. We will all be dead in 20 years anyway...Only the puxa sacos and the worst of thugs will survive.

Bem feito America..I tried to tell you but you would not listen...

Anônimo disse...

The race goes on...just watchin' the wheels go round and round and roooooooouuunnnnnnnnd! No longer on the merry go 'round....


Yeah, I am fucked up on beer and maconha...so fuckin' what? If you knew what I know, how would you react? If you knew Arthur's situation then how would you care?

Insane...there is only so much I can take.

In vain...seems to be everything we have ever made.

Summer has finally arrived...know what that means? 40c heat for the next 3 months. Keep the beer cold and heapin' mounds of maconha comin'...

We'll get through it. We'll survive. Before we know it the sanity of October will finally arrive.

I keep makin' them cry. They keep askin'..."why don't you kiss me all over????"

I ask...how often do you shower per day? Only in the mornings?????

Oh how they cry. How my tongue remains silent and im-mobile.. You have no idea how "fresh" brasileiras really are. You have no idea how much the gringas hate them. Who is at fault here? Must I keep pointing it out?

Ok it's only gonna be "back door man". No oral until hygiene improves. Carolina blonde...you are not the best even if Playboy pays you half a million dollars to show your "masonic temple".

Anônimo disse...

Ok Arthur man...I sense a great PAUSE. What?

Man...you wanna know? You want the opinion...

OK I have checked them out...

I now KNOW...

How can I explain...


Fuck...

am extremely "amped" on caffiene, nicotien, alcohol, limes and THC for the moment...

not to mention working in 40c heat all fuckin' week with a bunch of demonically possessed bosses...

I am tired of performing exorcisms, man. Too many fuckin' demons out there...they tire me...

Yes this is my "role" in life. I am an Exorcist...

Should get PAID for it. This would be nice...fuckin' catholic priests and macumbeiros have no idea how to exorcise a demon from a possessed soul...

I do...

Ok will write my o-pin-ION in the next comment...

Anônimo disse...

The opinion is coming...

Well..."how can I put this?"

Rsrsrsrsrsrsrsrsrsrsrsrs.....

They have "potential".

The problem or concern I have is the "image". You see...america is presently plagued by a new yet spectaculary soul-less sub-culture called "hipsters"...

What's a "hipster"? some may ask...

Imagine everything that has been accepted as "universally cool" for the last 11 or 12 decades now presented as a Big Mac...


Fuck, Arthuer man...I smell something bad with these Raconteurs...

Fuckin' demons are ruining everything...

Jack Lawrence? I know this name from somewhere...

The music I like and can go somewhere but damn...it's also another marketing gimmick tellin' people how to dress and think....

Anônimo disse...

18 thousand visitors later...holy fuck Arthur! You're never gonna meet many of these people...

They have read what you wrote. You live in the most absurd places on earth..Rio de Janeiro. For the love of god, write about it.


Is Arthur, ok? If the guy is extremely ill or has passed, it could take me months before I discover.

I worry about everyone I know still unfortunate enough to presently reside in a city which celebrates both mindlessness and death...

Rio de Janeiro IS america...the big joke or "secret" 99.9% of you still do not comprehend...

Who am I talkin' to? Those of you rude enough to read what I write...FUCK YOU.

If you both find yourself and your present company so boring that you must eaves-drop on other people's conversations then please kill yourselves immediately. I promise to attend all of your pathetic funerals and fuck all of your large breasted "Tia's" while I am there...

Where in the world can you instantly find easy and free sex? A brazilian funeral...

Anônimo disse...

and if you want a big wet ass, call me. I'll be glad to meke you cum...

Anônimo disse...

thank you all for being here.
