David Knight - 31st May 2011

Now The White Stripes have jacked it in, Seasick Steve now looks like one of the most reliable sources of primal rock thrills out there - especially as he's now teamed up with John Paul Jones.

He certainly has a great video from Reuben Sutherland for You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks, the first single from the same titled new album.

Steve's anathema to relentless consumerism is definitely a theme, of course, where everything including roads and TVs have teeth, and flying irons flatten cities....
