an incoming series of singles by The Dead Weather, released bit-by-bit until eventually landing with an album in 2015.
Last month the first half of the first single, 'Open Up (That's Enough)', was unveiled in scrappy quality (presumably by a fan who'd grabbed the vinyl and ended up overly excited). That splintering lead track has now been joined by 'Rough Detective', its b-side. Jack White leads vocals in a deranged, throbbing number that spits out every word in a bitter, twisted tongue.
Note: It also contains the lyric, 'Your instinct is defective but your cock's on fire'...
