The third album by Jack and Meg White was the right dynamite for a mainstream breakthrough. Jack’s Delta-roadhouse fantasies, Detroit-garage-rock razzle and busted-love lyricism, as well as Meg’s toy-thunder drumming all peaked at once. Together they made divine synth pop, especially Who’s That Girl?, a tale of kinked-up sexual obsession, and their massive hit Here Comes the Rain Again.
69. 1980 was a good year for geeks-for instance, I was born; the dB’s were recording Stands for Decibels; and, oh yeah, Crazy Rhythms came out. Call them the Velvet Underground with pocket protectors, the Bowlcut Beatles, but the coolest thing about the Feelies’ debut was the beat. Though the album’s spare, perfectly placed strokes of guitar, bass, organ, and voice would have more of an effect on mopey slowcore types and basement four-trackers, the ineffable thing about the Giants’ music was how simultaneously haunting and cheery they could be. Eating Noddemix is music for brushing your teeth to the morning after an apocalypse, and the inimitable Wurlitzer Jukebox is a dance track for the last man on Earth, with a geiger counter relentlessly ticking out the beat.
