In the late 2000s - Nigel Godrich started a web series featuring live sets from an amazing array of musicians. From White Denim to Warpaint - From the Basement is a who's who of rock and roll. Godrich has been uploading the performances to YouTube - including the series first episode from 2005 with The White Stripes.
The Get Behind Me Satan heavy set also includes their cover of Captain Beefheart's "Party of Special Things to Do."
In a statement to Rolling Stone, Godrich said, "The dream of From the Basement is to capture great performances with the most direct and beautiful coverage possible, both sonically and visually. We were so fortunate early on to have the support of Jack and Meg who instinctively understood the concept of the show and so came to be part of it. As a result, we have this amazing snapshot of their fantastic energy and style. It’s an intimate and direct performance, something magic, powerful and special. A day I will not forget."
Jack White said "It was beautifully filmed and the sound quality makes a performance on a regular TV show sound like a wax cylinder recording...No host. Thank God."
