Been meaning to make some noise about Third Man Records for a while. But here's the low down if you didn't already know...
Third Man Records was originally founded by Jack White in Detroit in 2001. In March of 2009, a physical location was established in Nashville, TN. Third Man Records in it’s current state serves as record store, record label, live venue, and one stop production house with a rehearsal and photo studio, darkroom, and production office and distribution center. All of our records are produced by Jack White in his own Third Man Studio, then printed and pressed right here in Nashville. With our unique set-up we can have an artist recorded and photographed in one day and have records for sale in our store within weeks. In this way we are bringing a spontaneous and immediate aesthetic back into the record business.
This is how music should be, this is a big Fuck You to how awful the music industry has become. Bringing back the immediacy and realness of music, making it raw and untampered with by all the blandness that is around said industry today.
This is neat little product they've released, The Triple Decker Record:
Jack White and The Third Man band has recently bought back 50s Rock'n'Roll legend Wanda Jackson, with an album of covers called The Party Ain't Over and it's one of the best Albums you're gonna hear in a while.
and they sound like this...
"oooo my goodness"
There's a lot more going on at Third Man Records, including new vinyl creations, more great bands, music videos, photography and even Jack White interviewing a livestock auctioneer!
