Jack White’s Crazy Gang

It’s always fun to listen to a stack of 45s you’ve never heard before, especially if there’s a mixture of genres and some new names. Sometimes what seems to be a familiar name isn’t so at all — we’ve always called these records “mistaken identities.” It could be a group’s name, as in the case of this band called Starship we posted last summer, or it could be an individual as in the case of today’s single.

This goofy 1975 single on a German label is credited to Jack White’s Crazy Gang. Coincidentally, the famous musician Jack White was born the same year this record was released — although he wasn’t Jack White just yet. His name was John Anthony Gillis, and he took his wife Meg’s last name when they were married. He was pictured with a “crazy gang” of his own on a Third Man Records single after he appeared on the most recent (and “sadly temporary”) Muppets show.
