In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all
great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street
corner or in a restaurant’s revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman
wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that
on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully
capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into
their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread – in other words, a
wick.
