Stripey sibling spouses

We've got a whole lotta hype going on about the White Stripes lately. I thought it was interesting, read a few articles, the usual. With all the obsession about their white-and-red image, their mysterious sibling-or-spouse relationship, and their minimalist recording techniques, it seemed to me that they were more style than substance.

But that song "Seven Nation Army" kicks butt. Finally, a heavy-rock pop song that doesn't sound like warmed-over Green Day. If you like it too, you might try harking back to "Suffer Never," a track from the Finn Brothers' 1995 album, which has a similar feel, and was also recorded by only two people—Neil and Tim Finn, who really are siblings.
