White Mystery (US) - Blood & Venom (LP)

Regular price $35.00

'Inevitable White Stripes comparisons will arise, but White Mystery is something else entirely. For one thing, White Mystery is a punk band and the Stripes never were. Then there's the fact that Alex wails like a hungover Corin Tucker while Francis attacks his drums with an appealing savagery that's more Moon than Meg. This is your basic garage rock with a punk-ass attitude.

The band's second album Blood & Venom establishes that the world of White Mystery is always ablaze. I lost count of how many times Alex howls about fire in the forest or setting the world on fire or being the King of Fire's daughter. A fixation on flames isn't unexpected from a pair of Chicagoan gingers - they were born with an inferno in their fuzz-drenched souls, as they gleefully recount in '1985'. Lyrics are spare to the point of undeveloped, but the riffs are substantial enough that Alex could sing a nursery rhyme and it would sound like the Communist Manifesto. If you invite White Mystery to your house they'll either have a party or burn it down. Maybe both. But they'd wish you a happy birthday while they were doing it.' - Perpetrator Records
