The White Stripes have made their From The Basement performance available to stream in full, for the first time ever. The performance, available on YouTube, also includes additional b-roll material and was never broadcast as a standalone session.

From The Basement, created by Nigel Godrich, was a web television series that ran between 2006 and 2009. Filmed at London's Maida Vale Studios, the show featured exclusive performances from major artists such as Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, Fleet Foxes, The Fall, Laura Marling, Sonic Youth, and of course The White Stripes. 

Promoting Get Behind Me Satan (which makes up the setlist of their FTB performance) the unique blues-rock duo came off the back of headlining Glastonbury Festival and were arguably at the height of their weirdness - Jack White sporting a seriously questionable outfit and moustache gives it away.
