Raconteurs are 'The Saboteurs' Down Under

Published: 2006-04-11
Like UK rockers Bush - who had to be known as 'BushX' in Canada because a band here already held the name - Jack White's new band is going to have to take on an alter ego in Australia.

The Raconteurs will be referred to as the Saboteurs down under, because a jazz band in Australia has already claimed their name.

"To make things easier, and in the spirit of espionage and subversion, we have decided to become The Saboteurs in Australia only," the band said in an official statement.

As of yet, there is no word on how (or if) the name change will have any affect on the band's debut release, Broken Boy Soldiers, in Australia. The record is due to be released on May 15.
