Supergroup The Dead Weather storm Montreux(Reuters) - Alternative rock supergroup The Dead Weather gave a blistering performance of heavy blues in front of a capacity Montreux Festival crowd in the sweltering Miles Davis Hall.

Anchored on drums by White Stripes frontman Jack White, looking like Johnny Depp in 1995 film 'Dead Man' with a feathered black hat sitting atop his shock of dark hair, the performance was in stark contrast to the genteel jazz of Nora Jones, headlining the festival's main hall upstairs at the weekend.

The Dead Weather was formed by White and The Kills' Alison Mosshart after Mosshart filled in as singer for the White Stripes on a joint-tour of the United States in 2008, when White suffered with chronic bronchitis.

Both musicians played Montreux in 2008, but this was their first appearance together at the festival, in an all-star band of multi-instrumentalists, including The Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence and Queens Of The Stone Age's Dean Fertita on guitar.

"I've made it on an iPad," Damon Albarn has claimed. "I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad," he continued, talking about the next Gorillaz album. "I'm going to try and put it out before Christmas."

In an interview with NME, Albarn said that he has been working on a follow-up to the cartoon group's Plastic Beach while on tour with the band. "I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record," he said.

"I hope I'll be making the first record [on an iPad]." he continued. "Which is ironic, being the sort of technophobe and Luddite that I am."

Albarn has been recording tracks for the new album while touring America with the Gorillaz. "It's a studio album made in hotel rooms across America," he added.

Listeners can expect to find an American influence on the record. The album is "more American-sounding than Blur," he commented. "It sounds like an English voice that has been put through a vocoder of America."
