>I’m almost ashamed to admit it, but I rather like what I’ve heard of the White Stripes’ “Elephant” album. I always hated the idea of the White Stripes – no bass, inept drumming, all the hype. But this album isn’t half-bad. There used to be a radio ad in Ireland back in the day for a brand of soft drink which was not particularly popular. The tagline for the ad was a lady saying “I never liked it ’til I tried it…” That sums up my view of the White Stripes – never liked ’em ’til I tried ’em…:-)
