The White Stripes put UK debut performance on YouTube

The White Stripes have made a 2001 show for the BBC on YouTube available to their fans. Jack and Meg White played in the program Later… With Jools Holland the number Hotel Yorba.

It was the first time that the American band, which ceased to exist in 2011, was seen on British TV. Hotel Yorba is also featured on the Greatest Hits album that was released at the end of last year by the duo.

Jack White is currently cleaning up his archive, it seems. Previously, he also played the whole gig he did with Meg for the 2005 Internet series From The Basement. There were already parts of the show on the Internet, but now the whole set is available, including a cover version of Captains Party of Special Things to Do song Beefheart.
