Episode 125 – The Racs at Electric Lady

Do you belong to the Jack generation? Then chances are you have been enjoying The Raconteurs: Live at Electric Lady EP & documentary that was released this past May of 2020 in conjunction with Spotify and Youtube. In September of 2019, as The Raconteurs continued to barrel through their massive Help Us Stranger world tour, the band stopped by New York City’s famed Electric Lady Studios (founded by Jimi Hendrix and John Storyk in 1970) to help celebrate the studio’s impending 50th anniversary with the recording of a new cover song and an intimate concert that evening. Jack, Brendan, LJ and Patrick were joined by longtime friend, director Jim Jarmusch, to document the occasion and to sit down with the band for the type of candid interview only five old friends could truly have. Along with the electric (pun!) performance at the end of the night, The Raconteurs recorded a studio rendition of Richard Hell and the Voidoid’s punk anthem Blank Generation, originally put down at Electric Lady for release in September of 1977. In this episode, we’ll discuss the project and try something a little different in the form of a running fan-commentary of the documentary. We’re excited as hell to have some new Racs music to sink our teeth into this year, and what better way to celebrate our penultimate episode of the season than with a journey into the blank generation? We know the Voidoids could take it or leave it each time – but we hope you’ll take it and join us for the ride!
