#JWhite6Music - The Ultimate Jack White Playlist
Ahead of the documentaty on Jack White this weekend on BBC 6 Music - Red, White and Black: The Jack White Story - Now Playing dedicated the show to one of modern music's true legends. The playlist was unsurprisingly wild, varied and well, White!
We also wrapped up what had been going on in the online world and Punktastic chose some of their current favourite tracks for us.
The White Stripes - Blue Orchid
* At the Drive In announced their return via Twitter. The band who went on hiatus 11 years ago have announced their first reunion performance at California’s Coachella festival in April.
* Elsewhere on the Coachella line up, Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg will perform along with Radiohead, Pulp and Refused, who have also reformed for the festival.
* Spin magazine is to drop full length album reviews after 26 years replacing them with online only 140 character synopses. Claiming “the value of the average rock critic's opinion has plummeted” – all reviews will now come through @SPINreviews.
