About this item

Grand Rapids’ finest Whirlwind Heat is notable as Italy Records’ first foray into anything that could possibly be considered art-rock. Listening to their jams, you’d quickly get the feeling DEVO and Brainiac were spinning heavily on their turntables. On each track, the rhythm section is quick and jagged and vocals are hardly even human, interspersed with synth bursts. This single, Italy’s 12th release, was also recorded with Jack White in 2001 and began a partnership that lasts to this day, with WWH drummer Brad Holland working as Third Man’s in house video director and lead singer David Swanson accompanying Jack White on tour as his official photographer.
