12.20.2014 // TWO RARE SINGLES BY JACK'S PRE-WHITE STRIPES BAND DISCOVERED

 

Two copies of the Upholsters single, "Your Furniture Was Always Dead... I Was Just Afraid To Tell You" have surfaced inside of furniture reupholstered by Jack's band mate, Brian Muldoon. 98 copies are still being sat upon today. So everyone, it's time to rip up your old chairs and couches. What are you waiting for?

Taken from Third Man Records:

"Recently Third Man Records has been made aware of the discovery of two different copies found by two separate individuals of the 2nd single by the Upholsterers. This duo, comprising of actual upholsterers Jack White and Brian Muldoon, pressed 100 copies of this single and proceeded to hide them in furniture being reupholstered by Muldoon in 2004, in celebration of his 25th year in the business. In celebration of these discoveries, Third Man would like to share with everyone the cover art for this single, done by noted Detroit artist Gordon Newton."

12.19.2014 // BASSIST DOMINIC DAVIS TALKS ABOUT RECORDING THE SONG LAZARETTO

 

Dominic recently spoke with the Swedish blog songsforwhoever for their 100 Greatest Songs of 2014 article. Here's an excerpt:

Did any odd, or unusual, things happen during the recording sessions?

In a way, this entire record was odd. We would have a day or two off here and there, go in and put down as much as we could in the short time we had. Sometimes 4-5 songs a day. I said before that Jack works fast, but because we were touring it took him a year and a half to finish the record which is really unlike him. The sessions themselves were fast, but the entire process was the longest he?s ever worked on a record. It makes me wonder what the next one will be like.


Follow the link above to read the whole interview, and join us in the Little Room to talk about Lazaretto.

12.14.2014 // VIDEO OF THE WEEK- CHILD OF A FEW HOURS IS BURNING TO DEATH, BROOKLYN 2009

 

So Jack thinks of himself more as a drummer than a guitarist? He sure proves it in this week's Video of the Week, with a tremendous drum jam in the middle of Child of Few Hours at the Music Hall of Williamsburg back in 2009.

12.12.2014 // LAZARETTO IS THE TOP SELLING VINYL RECORD OF 2014- 75,700 COPIES!

 

All those bells and whistles and terrific music on the Ultra LP paid off. Since its release in June, Jack White's Lazaretto has sold 75,700 copies, making it the top selling vinyl record of 2014. The nearest to it was the Arctic Monkeys at almost half as many copies! That's an impressive amount that shows just how much Jack's fans embrace his philosophy of a tangible music experience.



But there's a dark side to all those record sales, as this article in the Wall Street Journal points out-- The Biggest Music Comeback of 2014: Vinyl Records. The more records sell, the harder it is for record pressing plants to keep up. What do you think of the success of Lazaretto? Do you have concerns about the future of the vinyl record industry? Join us in the Little Room to talk about it.

12.05.2014 // JACK WHITE NOMINATED FOR THREE CATEGORIES OF THE 2015 GRAMMYS!

 

The nominees have been announced for the 2015 Grammys and Jack is listed in three categories: The song Lazaretto is up for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance, and the record Lazaretto is up for Alternative Music Album (too many genres on it to have been nominated as a straight-up rock album?). See who he's competing against here then tune in on February 8th to see who wins.

11.24.2014 // BLACK FRIDAY / "ROBOT" MONDAY - THIRD MAN RECORDS

 

For your crazies who love to get up early on Black Friday for stuff, how about skipping the Wal-Marts and the Targets of the world and head over to Third Man Records for lots of steals and deals. I guess you do have to be in the Nashville area to take advantage of this. Here's the scoop from Third Man Records:

BLACK FRIDAY

"Some people get up early on Black Friday to stand in line for televisions and treadmills and toasters. We like that our fans are the type of people who stand in line for one thing, and one thing only: MUSIC. This Black Friday we will be selling limited edition vinyl of The Dough Rollers GONE BABY GONE EP as well as Bill Burr's LIVE AT ANDREW'S HOUSE LP from our Nashville storefront beginning at 9am. We will also have black vinyl of the newest trio of Sun Records Reissues: Roy Orbison's "Ooby Dooby b/w Go! Go! Go!," "Sweet and Easy to Love b/w Devil Doll," and "Chicken-Hearted b/w I Like Love" (also available online).

At our physical location, we will also be selling the absolute... final... remaining... general admission tickets to Jack White's Bridgestone arena show in January. A free "Would You Fight For My Love" 7" will come with every ticket purchased. This is your last chance to be a part of the up-close-and-personal crew at this show.

And, for those of you who love a deep discount, we are offering 30% off (with a few exceptions*) in-store and online using the code "BLACKANDWHITE." This promotion lasts through Sunday, November 30th.

ROBOT MONDAY:

"LAZARETTO ROULETTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you've surely learned by now, we love a good game of roulette, and so we've decided to offer our biggest selling record of the year to you all with a chance to play, and a chance to WIN! Purchase the Lazaretto ULTRA LP in our online store for the special price of $8.99 and you will receive a little extra something along with your ULTRA LP. It could be just a small token of our affection, or it could be the collector/aficionado's surprise of a lifetime. One thing is for certain, you can't win if you don't play.

Robot Monday also has us feeling particularly generous towards our beloved Vault members, who will receive 50% off almost anything in the Vault store using the code "FRIENDSANDFAMILY." Have at it, girls and boys."

This week's video of the week is not a throwback, it's from just two weeks ago in Vienna, Austria and begins with a bit of whimsy before launching into a bouncy clap-along. Irresistible!

What's that you say? You've never visited Third Man Records? Unfortunately, a trip to Nashville can be tough for some fans to arrange due to finances or distance. But check it out-- The Boston Globe recently visited TMR and you can experience it vicariously through their detailed description: Record store marches to beat of its own hum. They've even got a video of the Third Man Monkey Band.

11.19.2014 // THIRD MAN RECORDS SECOND ANNUAL HOLIDAY HELP-A-THON!

 

Third Man Records has just announced their second annual Holiday Help-A-Thon and it's a big deal. If you're fortunate enough to be in Nashville between now and December 19th, be sure to swing by the shop with a donation for the Nashville Rescue Mission (you know, that place whose parking lot so many of us use when we visit TMR) and be entered in a drawing for one of three fantastic musical prizes. Or see if you can get on their list to donate blood for the Red Cross on December 19th and take home a mystery gift from under the Third Man Family Christmas tree. Visit the Third Man News page for full and specific details.

For those of us who can't get to Nashville to participate in the Help-A-Thon, never fear! You can still help by donating directly to the Rescue Mission through their donation page or send physical donations (per the list in TMR's news announcement) to Third Man for delivery to the Mission. Include your name, email address and phone number in the package, and add "Attn: Holiday Help-a-thon Donation" in the address.
