Catch Hell Blues

Album: Icky Thump (2007)
  • Jack White (from Uncut magazine June 2007): "I harken back to the days when bands didn't have any overdubs. There are songs on here which are one take, which are just me and Meg playing live, like 'Catch Hell Blues.' We're proud of that, because we know the conditions it was made under. If people say I love your song, and I think I spent $600,000 dollars and recorded it on computer and it took six months. I mean, what's the big deal? Anybody can do that! But if they love the song, and you look back and think all you had was a book of matches and a screwdriver, then you can be proud." >>
