Jack White Or Noel Gallagher? Who Is Right About Vinyl?


Gallagher vs White


Musicians don’t always live on the same planet, some live on their own planet, others are more realistic? I am not sure of a lot of things but you can’t be further apart than Jack White and Noel Gallagher.

On Black Friday, White has opened a second store for his Third Man Records label in Detroit, and just like his Nashville store, this second one will be full of vinyl and will eventually add a vinyl pressing plant to make the label’s records… it will be the first new pressing plant in Detroit since… the mid-60’s. Jack White is a believer in music, he worships old things related to music such as real records, and he puts his money where his heart is, he really invests in this industry! Plus I am sure he will continue to release all kinds of eccentricity, like this ultra LP with hidden tracks that played at different RPMs, with a side that played from the outside in and produced holograms… things that Noel Gallagher would call… utter shit.

Meanwhile Gallagher has a totally opposite view of this same industry, he even said to Q magazine that he doesn’t believe the current vinyl infatuation is gonna last very long: ‘But it’s the streaming thing, there will be no record sales by the end of the decade, I think.’

So, no record sales at all by 2020? I don’t know who is exactly right, vinyl has found its little niche right now, but it has been an endangered species for a long time, which was maintained artificially alive a bit too long by a few enthusiastic and falsely nostalgic people… When is this going to collapse? I am just waiting for the CD come back in a few decades. But kids are all about streaming these days, so will Jack White be soon a man with a fork in a world of soup? You have to love these Gallagher’s expressions, honestly, they are totally timeless and recyclable at any occasion, unlike vinyl records.
