I know I am late on this train
but, Wolfmother totally sound like the spawn of The White Stripes and Spinal Tap.
"Woman" *really* sounds like "Big Bottom"!!! the melody and the lyrics, dude: "she's a woman/ you know what I mean." And afterwards, I just wanna shout out, "talk about bum cakes, my girl's got 'em"!!!
But (of course?) I dig it.
Why I am I so late on this train? I do not pretend to know. I mean, Fitzy and I *saw* these characters at Lolla in August. I wasn't that into it. I think we needed to be closer. I did think that Jack White might have been on stage with them at one point (he wasn't, but he was at Lolla) just because I think that Andrew Stockdale really evokes White (even more than Plant, yes).
Strangely, I knew I had to revisit the "Woofmother" (as Miss Kate Sullivan would say) from watching Fox! I was veering from my normal tee vee diet, and I found myself totally engaged in "House." I now believe this has to be one of the most awesome, fucked-up shows on network tv! I fucking love it. They used "Dimension" in a horrific, Iraq-war dream that Hugh Laurie's character was having and it rocked so hard, I had to get me some Woof. It makes me laugh (that's the Tap) but it also makes me want to crank it so loud, my neighbors complain (that's the Stripes).
