Danger! High Voltage (XL/Beggars)
By: Cam Lindsay
Pushed back a couple of times, the release of Electric 6's discorock anthem, is set to be a massive, massive hit. And that's guaranteed, even if people don't know or don't give a toss about the fact that Jack White wails along with the Tom Jones soundalike singer Dick Valentine. It has an infectious guitar loop at the beginning, with some saxophone and a steady dance beat, making it quite accomplished for some guys from Detroit who had to change their name from The Wildbunch because of Massive Attack and their crew. Valentine has a knack for pushing his expressions to the max and on "I Lost Control (Of My Rock & Roll)" and "Remote Control (Me)". These b-sides are equally as enthusiastic as the single, but far less thrilling. Nevertheless, it's the a-side that is important, and it will be 2003's first big hotstepper.
