The Hateful Eight

The complete recordings of Ennio Morricone’s original score for The Hateful Eight, now on 180 gram vinyl LP. These arrangements for Quentin Tarantino’s film make up Morricone’s first Western score in 40 years and it easily competes with the grand, unique and strange orchestrations of his Sergio Leone classics. This release includes musical cues from the rest of the film, jacket with soft-touch finish, 60” x 12” poster, 36” x 12” poster and booklet.

Boris
Feedbacker

'Feedbacker' is Japanese experimental metal band Boris’ masterpiece, encompassing one song divided into five distinct movements. The piece shape-shifts from drone metal to psychedelia, bleeding into stoner metal and glorious noise where even the percussion distorts! ‘Feedbacker’ is a record which perfectly highlights Boris’ chameleonic tendencies, making it an essential record for fans of post-metal, psych rock, drone and noise rock.

Big Joanie
Cranes In The Sky / It’s You

Recent tour support for the likes of Sleater-Kinney, Parquet Courts and The Raincoats, black feminist punks Big Joanie unveil their first release for Third Man, a 7” single boasting a cover version of Solange’s modern classic ‘Cranes In The Sky’ and an original piece, ‘It’s You’. 

Jonathan Fire*Eater
Tremble Under Boom Lights

Jonathan Fire*Eater were the nearly people of '90s indie rock. They began the sound that eventually would eventually make stars out of the likes of the Strokes and Interpol i.e dark and dangerous New York City cool with all the right influences (the Stooges, the Cramps, Nick Cave). It never quite happened for them but a man in Detroit was listening to them. A man named Jack who now has his own record label and so here is a re-issue of their 1996 extended play now with bonus added track.   

Alison Mosshart
Sound Wheel

Alison Mosshart is best known for being in the duo The Kills and the supergroup The Dead Weather along with Jack White et al. Sound Wheel is her first spoken word album and is the audio version of her new book Car Ma which is made up from short stories, poetry, paintings and photographs. On Third Man.

The Stooges
Live at Goose Lake: August 8th 1970

Jack White’s Third Man label unearths yet another treat for fans of rock history - Live at Goose Lake: August 8th 1970 is the final show that The Stooges performed with their original line-up. This is the fabled gig at which they played Fun House in its entirety before it was even out, and where bassist Dave Alexander was allegedly so out of it that he couldn’t play a single note, after which Iggy Pop summarily fired him. This restoration of the original soundboard recording, found buried at the bottom of a pile in a Michigan farmhouse recently, proves otherwise. 

Redd Kross
Phaseshifter

A Redd Kross classic has got the Third Man reissue treatment. Phaseshifter was originally released in 1993. It saw the McDonald brothers blending power pop and heavy rock, which occasionally bordered on psychedelia with tracks like Huge Wonder. Also Includes the singles Visionary, Lady In The Front Row and Jimmy’s Fantasy. 

Redd Kross
Show World

Looks like Third Man are re-issuing a couple of Red Kross's out of print albums starting with their 1997 effort Show World. The band had already been going for well over a decade by that point honing their unique brand pf psychedelia and power-pop. By the time of Show World they were on major label Universal and it was to be their last album before going on a decade long hiatus.  

that dog.
Totally Crushed Out

That Dog were a ‘90s alternative rock band fronted by Anna Waronker and featured Petra and Rachel Hayden - two thirds of The Hayden Triplets. Totally Crushed Out! was their second album, originally released in 1995. It’s a concept album about young love. Features the single He’s Kissing Christian and their uncharacteristic 7 minute epic, Rockstar.

that dog.
Retreat From The Sun

That Dog were one of those ‘90s bands who never quite hit the big time despite support slots with the likes of Weezer, Counting Crows and Blur. It’s certainly not down to lack of talent or good songs, either. They were led by Anna Waronker and featured two of the very talented Hayden Triplets in their ranks at various times. Retreat From The Sun was their third album, originally released in ‘97 and features guest spots from Waronker’s husband, Steve McDonald of Redd Kross, Charlotte Caffey from The Go-Go’s and Tanya Hayden - the other Hayden triplet.

The Fiery Furnaces
Down at the So and So on Somewhere

Having collectively released eight solo albums between them since their last album they released together as The Fiery Furnaces over a decade ago, Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger finally unpause their career together. A brand new 7” single available on Third Man, ‘Down At The So And So On Somewhere’, picks up where they left off brilliantly. 

Boris
Akuma No Uta

Never fear - although they may share a name with our troublesome and idiotic prime minister, Boris are excellent, combining ultra-heavy riffing with thunderous percussion ever since they came into being in 1992. Third Man Records re-issues their 2003 album, Akuma No Uta, to collide with a brand new American tour. 

L-Seven
L-Seven

Not to be confused with the recently reunited punk act, the short-lived Detroit post-punk act L-Seven shone briefly but brightly at the start of the Eighties. Housed by Touch And Go sub-imprint Special Forces, they only ever released one 7” before disbanding, whereupon lead singer Larissa founded the legendary Laughing Hyenas. However, L-Seven is now being re-issued as a long-player by Jack White’s Third Man Records. 

Albert Ayler
New Grass

A re-issue on Third Man Records for New Grass, the 1968 album from American avant-garde jazz saxophonist Albert Ayler. Misunderstood critically and popularly at the time of its release, it mixed jazz, regarded as a high art form in American pop, with soul, then in its comparative infancy and thought of as lowbrow. More than 50 years later, its solid grooves and innovative arrangements still seem relevant. 

Jacuzzi Boys
The Pits

The Pits is the new single from garage / punk / glam rockers Jacuzzi Boys. It explodes from the speakers in a shower of fuzz and glitter. It’s melodic, energetic, tight and nods in the direction of Marc Bolan. It’s backed with Offended - a 60-second punk rock tornado that takes no prisoners. On Third Man.

Woods
Live at Third Man Records

Woods are a reliably American band who’ve been mixing folk and soul and funk and indie for a decade now. This particular release documents what happened when Woods played a live set at Jack White’s Third Man Records, recorded in meticulous analogue detail on audio-lover White’s special equipment.

Father John Misty
Live at Third Man Records

Shy and retiring songwriter Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) made a rare public appearance in September 2017 and it just happened to be at Third Man studios on Nashville. Much to his embarrassment presumably, the whole thing was taped and has now been released on an LP. The songs cover all three Father John Misty releases and sees him strip things back a bit compared to the lavish studio arrangements.

The White Stripes
White Blood Cells

White Blood Cells was the third album by brother/sister duo (whaaaat? hang on...no) ok from ex couple duo Jack and Meg White as the White Stripes. After their two previous albums started making waves across the sweaty clubs of the UK this was the first one to really break through and features such future classics as Hotel Yorba and Fell In Love With A Girl. Still sounding as fresh as a daisy, it's a further reminder that Jack White's music was so much better when constricted by Meg's rudimentary but intuitive drumming.  

Martin Solis
Martin Solis & Los Primos

Martin Solis was born in Texas in 1929. He made conjunto music - a Tex-Mex, or tejano, hybrid of sounds made up from accordion and the Mexican 12-string bass known as bajo sexto. He holds the prestige of being inducted into the tejano music hall of fame but he never released any recordings in his lifetime. Los Primos were the band he formed in the late ‘50s with his Saxophonist cousin Willy Huron. Martin Solis & Los Primos is the first ever LP of his music, and we have Third Man Records to thank for bringing it to us.

The White Stripes
De Stijl

'De Stijl' was the second album from Detroit area garage rock and blues revivalists the White Stripes. It showcases perfectly their early raw power as they rattle through a host of Jack White originals and the odd blues cover (one by Son House naturally). It was the album that came just as they were reaching the first flushes of success and led to Jack White closing his upholstery shop for good. Next stop was 'White Blood Cells' and international fame.

The White Stripes
Lets Shake Hands

Back to where it all began. The Let’s Shake Hands 7” is the first thing ever released by a certain White Stripes, and it laid down the gauntlet in style. ‘Let’s Shake Hands’ and ‘Look Me Over Closely’ are raw garage-punk wheezes of the kind that would be all over their debut LP. The fact that the latter was originally performed by Marlene Dietrich introduces that element of Weimar surrealism that Jack and Meg were so good at in the early days. This here edition is a Third Man reissue.

Luke Schneider
Altar of Harmony

A key figure in the modern Nashville scene, playing back-up for artists such as Caitlyn Rose, Margo Price and Orville Peck, Luke Schneider shows off the full spectrum of his talent on the much underrated and oft-sneered at steel guitar on Altar of Harmony, a new solo album for Jack White’s Third Man Records. 

Parquet Courts
Live at Third Man Records

Those hip New York punksters Parquet Courts head on down to Jack White’s Third Man Records in Detroit. They play a show, to rapturous reception, and then cut said show straight into the deep grooves of a vinyl LP, old-time style (just how Jack likes it). Unvarnished and direct, Live At Third Man Records is very nice.

The Raconteurs
Help Us Stranger

After more than a decade away (and by away we mean separately playing constantly in many various other groups), The Raconteurs unite for a third studio album, Help Us Stranger. With Brendan Benson and Jack White at the core, the group’s Nashville recording sessions yielded a rich bounty of rock, drawing on blues, soul, funk and country for a tasty all-American album. Help Us Stranger is released by White’s Third Man Records.

The Raconteurs
Help Me Stranger / Somedays (Alternate Version)

Kind of like a modern day Travelling Wilburys in both sound and personnel, the Raconteurs released their third album Help Us Stranger last summer to excellent sales. Now the sorta title track is coming out as a 7". It's an acoustic rock song with lots of guitar licks - really rootsy. On the other side you get an alternate take on their song Somedays.

Melvins
Houdini

American sludgy rockers Melvins were named after a grocery store supervisor who was despised by the band member who worked under him. Houdini was their fifth studio album, and the first on major label Atlantic (who dropped them 2 albums later). Championed by grunge Gods Nirvana, 'Houdini' was essentially the band's break-through album. Packed full of gritty yet catchy riffs, sparse yet incredibly hard hitting drums and grumbling bass, 'Houdini' is an ideal starting point into the weird and wonderful world of the Melvins.

Sleep
Leagues Beneath

Described on the press release as a '17 minute plunge' this is the first new material from legendary stoners Sleep following on from their much acclaimed The Sciences LP on Third Man. Recorded as a part of a series of songs for Adult Swim this is said to be 'a right good aural experience' (our words). 

Tenacious D
Blue Series 7"

Jack White
Lazaretto

The main thing to note about Jack White's second solo album Lazaretto is that it plays from the inside out. Yup stick your needle in the middle and watch it head towards the outer groove. While you are at it you'll have to listen to Jack's increasingly bloated hair-rock  - sort of the exact opposite thing to what he was doing in the White Stripes. But that vinyl huh? Amazing. 

Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
Trout Mask Replica

Well, what can be said about this masterpiece of a record that hasn't been uttered a hundred times before? A timely reissue then of Captain Beefheart's absurdist, Dadaist epic romp through art-blues, 'Trout Mask Replica'. None other than Jack White himself has seen fit to re-re-vinyl-ise this at his Third Man record plant. Complete with original cover art tracked down from its 1969 source. On 180-gram black double LP.

Bill Callahan
Live at Third Man Records

The latest record in Third Man Records’ Live At Third Man Records series finds the label/shop/Jack White vanity project hosting famed alt-country sadster Bill Callahan. The autumnal poetry of The Artist Formerly Known As Smog is magnified in his spare live show. These recordings expertly capture concert Callahan.

Brendan Benson
Dear Life

A co-founder of The Raconteurs along with Jack White as well as a solo artist with a great reputation, Brendan Benson returns with his seventh album, and first after a seven-year hiatus imposed by fatherhood. Dear Life is also his debut for Third Man Records, and sees him, as ever, melding classic rock moves with modern creativity. 

Broken Social Scene
Live at Third Man Records

Veteran Canadian collective Broken Social Scene get the Third Man treatment, with a brief, five-track live set being captured, mixed and mastered in real time via the label’s completely unique live venue and direct-to-acetate lathe cutting studio. Live at Third Man Records is thus the iconic band’s first widely available live album. 

The Pathetx
1981

Detroit punk band The Pathetx were influenced by the sound of West Coast punk, rather than the famous Detroit bands such as MC5 and The Stooges. They had a 16 year-old bass player who had the very punk name Mick Nasty. 1981 is released though Third Man Records. If you like Dead Kennedys, The Germs and Black Flag then this is for you.

Bonny Doon
Blue Stage Sessions

Bonny Doon play some beautiful, laid-back psych-folk grooves. You will usually find their records, such as the beautiful album Longwave (2018) on the Woodsist label, which is owned by Jeremy Earl of the band Woods. Blue Stage Sessions is a live album recorded at Third Man Records and features cuts from the length and breadth of their catalogue.

Sandy (Alex G)
Live at Third Man Records

Sandy (Alex G)'s last album 'Rocket' was just superb. A favourite here for both home and office so it's nice that he got invited to play hits from that and his other albums live at Third Man. Not only that it got recorded and now unleashed for his adoring fans. Listen to his lovely songs being played live and just imagine for a second that you were there.

Iron and Wine
Live at Third Man Records

The latest in a seemingly unending, but very welcome, series Live At Third Man, sees Sam Beam bring Iron & Wine to the Blue Room in Nashville. Beam kept his backing band as minimal as possible to make this a genuinely affecting and moving performance. Songs from albums Our Endless Numbered Days, Ghost on Ghost and his rarities compilation, Around The Well are featured.

The White Stripes
The Complete John Peel Sessions

The best place to witness the White Stripes in their early days was probably in a sweaty underground club. next best was a live and raw radio session and as usual legendary DJ John Peel was ahead of the curve and championed the duo by way of a series of Peel Sessions. This release collects the lot on a double LP which is stuffed to the gills full of self-penned classics such as Hotel Yorba and We're Going to Be Friends and a host of covers. The duo captured at their rawest and live-est.    

Teener
Auger

Pitched somewhere between new wave, shoegaze, drone rock and hardcore, the pleasingly vague Teener release their new 7” single on Third Man. While its lead track is the highly melodic ‘Auger’, the band squeeze on three tracks on this brilliantly valued package, with the heavy ‘Market Value’ also on the A-side and the atmospheric ‘Flavor’ on the flip. 

Jonathan Fire*Eater
Wolf Songs For Lambs

Jonathan Fire*Eater were almost the next big thing in US underground rock. They signed to Dreamworks, opened for Pulp and inspired the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Interpol but never made it big time. A couple of them went on to do pretty well in the Walkmen and one of them died. Regulation stuff. But now Jack White himself asks you to look back on their career with a series of vinyl re-issues on Third Man. Wolf Songs For Lambs was their debut album which though spurned at the time, has found followers in later life. 

Rostam
Live at Third Man Records

Rostam (Batmanglij) is one of the clever clogs who used to be in Vampire Weekend. He fled that band presumably when he couldn't stand the preppy Paul Simon-isms anymore and formed his own indie/tronics act Rostam. He has released one album so far Half Light and his little jaunt to Third Man should get him a few more followers. This recording of the performance contains songs from the album and new stuff too.

Mdou Moctar
Blue Stage Sessions

Live album by Tuareg guitarist Mdou Moctar recorded live at Third Man Records' Cass Corridor space. Moctar is a virtuoso on the guitar and you can feel utter adoration of the Detroit crowd as they lay witness to his Blue Stage Sessions. For this performance he was accompanied by band mates Ahmoudou Madassane and Mahmoud Ahmed Jabra on guitar and drums. 

Chandra
Blue Stage Sessions

Chandra Oppenheim, a prodigiously young alternative music star at the age of 12 in the early Eighties but who quit to focus on her studies, was persuaded last year to reunite her band by members of the Toronto indie scene. Third Man Records recorded the results at their Cass Corridor Stage back in February this year, and presents the results on this 7” single titled Blue Stage Sessions.

Death From Above 1979
Live at Third Man Records

Death From Above 1979 recorded these live jams at Third Man studios, under the wise eyes of “patron saint of vibes” (their description) Jack White. That decade away didn’t dull their edge: DFA 1979 still sound like a fierce, noisy blast of sweaty fun. Released on White’s Third Man label.

Boris
LφVE & EVφL

Borises aren’t all bad. Overlords of Japanese drone/doom/stoner psychedelic rock, Boris, are back with a double album. LφVE & EVφL sees the band continue to find new ways in which to cleave your mind apart. If you’re unfamiliar with Boris but like Sunn 0))), Sonic Youth et al, then you’ll love this. Also recommended for fans of Boris.

The Kills
The Kills Live At Third Man Records

The Kills are the duo of Jamie Hince (ex Blyth Power, Scarfo and ex Mr Kate Moss) and Alison Mosshart (ex Discount) and together they have been producing music a little bit like the White Stripes but not as good for some time. So it was no surprise when Jack White Stripe himself invited them to his Third Man live space and recording studio to record their blistering live set direct to acetate. Here is the vinyl for all your garage rock needs.  

Ghost Wolves
Crooked Cop

Crooked Cop is the new single from Austin, Texas duo, Ghost Wolves. They mix rootsy blues, punk and garage and add the modern twist of electronic sounds here and there - this is something you’ll know if you have any of their 5 albums, of course. This new 45 is the perfect sound for Third Man Records. 

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean sounds more like an algorithmically-generated Third Man Records artist than an actual human who Jack White brought into the fold (and, if the rumours are to be believed, was romantically involved with at one point). But hey ho, I guess the man who probably gets his friends to all call him Spooky Johnny Depp has a nose for a signing too. ‘Night Owl’ is the first single from Jean’s upcoming LP of the same name, and the girl-group-indebted garage-surf tune is indeed a fine bit of Third Manitude. This 7” release of the track comes backed with Jean’s cover of the Bollywood classic ‘Jaan Pehechaan Ho’.

Alexis Zoumbas
A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928

Alexis Zoumbas was a Greek folk-violinist who knocked about in the early 20th Century. Back in 2014 the Angry Mom Archives label got together A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928, a collection of expressive and mournful fiddle pieces to stir the soul. Having sold out pretty damn quickly on first release, Third Man have now decided to snap up the collection for a new pressing. Their edition of A Lament From Epirus 1926-1928 comes with a bonus 7” that features two tracks not included on the 2014 version. If you like the work of Death Is Not The End then this one’ll do you nicely.

Bush Tetras
There Is A Hum

More new music from no wave legends Bush Tetras comes in the form of 7” single, There’s A Hum, on Third Man Records. It follows the release of 2018’s Take The Fall EP (Wharf Cat) which was their first new material in more than a decade. Bush Tetras are now made up from original members, Cynthia Sley, Dee Pop, and Pat Place with Val Opielski on bass replacing Laura Kennedy who sadly died in 2011. 

The White Stripes
Lord Send Me An Angel / You're Pretty Good Looking For a Girl (Trendy American Remix)

Back before Jack White took it upon himself to be The Most Serious Man In The World he was actually quite funny. Case in point - this 2000 single from The White Stripes and its ‘Trendy American Mix’ of De Stijl highlight ‘You’re Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl)’. It’s the same song, but White’s vocals have been hyper-autotuned in a manner that transcends its novelty value and becomes actually just good. The other side of this 7”, originally put out as a Stripes tour single and now reissued by Third Man, is a cover of Blind Willie McTell’s ‘Lord Send Me An Angel’.

Jack White
Lazaretto / Power Of My Love

'Lazaretto' is the first single from Jack White's second album, cunningly also called 'Lazaretto', being released on his very own Third Man Records. Why Jack White is writing songs about maritime quarantine stations, only he knows. The track is backed on the flip by exclusive tune 'Power Of My Love'.

Olivia Jean
Night Owl

Olivia Jean is back on Third Man with a perhaps more sensibly-titled album than 2014's 'Bathtub Love Killings'. On that debut album Jean played almost every instrument but this time it's a collaborative effort backed by some hip new buddies. The result is a candy sweet album full of fuzzed out neo-surf rock which brings to mind the alien twang of the likes of the B52s and Dick Dale.  

Various
Ann Arbor - Blues Festival 1969

The Ann Arbor Blues Festival 1969 was America’s first blues festival. And boy did they get a cast of characters together! B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Son House, Big Mamma Thornton, Mississippi Fred McDowell are among the legendary acts performing. It’s all previously unheard stuff, unless of course, you were there. But you weren’t, were you?

Lillie Mae
Other Girls

Nashville singer/songwriter Lillie Mae caught the ears of a certain Jack White who produced her debut album, Forever and Then Some in 2017. Her new album, Other Girls, is produced by Dave Cobb. Cobb has worked with many country artists from Sturgill Simpson to Chris Stapleton, and won Grammys in the process. He has added a polish to Lillie Mae’s sound. 

The Hives
I'm Alive

It’s been five years since Swedish rockers, The Hives, released any new material. For some of us, the guy writing this for example, it’s seems even longer. So for those of us who have forgotten about them or were just wondering what had happened to them, their new single, 'I’m Alive', makes a statement suggesting that they are, indeed, still very much around. 'I’m Alive' is backed with 'Good Samaritan', on Third Man Records.

Jack White
Boarding House Reach

Jack is back. First new album for four years for the former White Stripes polymath. This time he holed himself up in an apartment and let his creativity run wild. Boarding House Reach explores rock and roll, punk, electro, gospel and everything in between. A tour de force of his abilities to experiment and surprise.

After 14 years releasing nothing, The Distillers returned in 2018 with a downloadable single. Man vs. Magnet is now available in its physical form. It is backed with Blood In Gutters. Both tracks show the band to be still full of raucous raw punk energy and melodic hooks. 7” single on Third Man.

Long Hots
Nickle & Dime / Give & Take

Nickel & Dime / Give & Take is the debut single from Philadelphia three-piece, Long Hots. Their lo-fi take on rock ‘n’ roll and blues is reminiscent of classic rock bands such as Stooges, Dead Moon and the solo work of Moe Tucker. Third Man Records have pretty much worn out their copy of their Monday Night Raw cassette, so are delighted to pressing some of their songs to vinyl.

POW!
Switchboard Scientist

San Franciscan band Pow! Mix garage rock and synthpunk. Think Devo meets Thee Oh Sees, the latter just happen to be label mates. With four albums behind them on Castle Face, they decided to nip in to Third Man Records in Detroit and rip through a couple of banging tunes. There are here for your delectation on a 7” called Switchboard Scientist.

Jack White
Over and Over and Over

If you couldn't face delving into Jack's Boarding House Reach folly then never fear. Here you can listen to it's only listenable moment without having to wade through the other bits. There's a spoken word piece on the flip which gives you a taste of the sort of ridiculous music you can expect from the album.    

AJJ
Live at Third Man Records

AJJ used to be known as Andrew Jackson Jihad. They’re a folk punk band from Arizona led by the duo of Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty. They have a revolving door policy for the rest of the band. Their live shows are frenetic affairs with air-punching anthems, of which, their loyal fan base know every word. Live At Third Man captures their live magic perfectly.

Griot Galaxy
Kins

Griot Galaxy painted their faces silver, read poetry at their gigs and played oddball jazz. Kins, their 1982 masterpiece,  is one of those much sought-after, legendary rare albums, made more rare by the fact that 1800 copies of the original pressing were accidentally binned. The Detroit band had the spirit of John Coltrane and Sun Ra coursing through their veins.

Oozelles
Every Night They Hack Off A Limb

7” single released on Jack White’s Third Man Records from Los Angeles-based Oozelles (fka Fake News). Consisting of members of Warpaint, Sex Stains and Jail Weddings, ‘Every Night They Hack Off a Limb’ is a breakneck thriller of bizarro punk, and B-side ‘Human Trafficking’ contrasts by going in a soulful direction. 

Guitar Wolf
LOVE&JETT

Guitar Wolf have been ripping a noisy and chaotic hole in the world of garage rock for over 30 years. They could be described as noisier, faster Jon Spencer Blues Explosion who sing in Japanese. They’ve not been shy of the odd cover cover version the years, Eddie Cochran’s 'Summertime Blues' perhaps being their most famous. On their new album LOVE&JETT they opt for the Spencer Davis Group hit 'Gimme Some Lovin’'.

Wallows
Live at Third Man Records

Suppose we’ve been getting this wrong all along. Suppose the Live At Third Man Records series isn’t a set of concert recordings given at Jack White’s boudoir. Suppose it’s LIVE At Third Man Records - as in, this lot LIVE there. All these rock bands pacing the corridors, smoking in corners, playing cards - generally idling, loitering, waiting for the moment that Mr. White calls their number and they’re ushered upstairs to play. ‘Hey, Wallows, you’re up’ barks Mr. White, nails grubby, Willy Wonka suit fraying at the elbows and knees; ‘and do the hits - I’m not keeping you here ‘cos I like you, y’know’. Lights on. The band play, the crowd cheers, and they’re sent back downstairs. For how long, no-one knows. After all, there are some people who Live At Third Man Records their whole life...

Lightnin' Hopkins
Strums The Blues

Any self-respecting blues fan will have some Lightnin’ Hopkins in their collection. Strums The Blues is going to be a great addition to that collection. It’s a rare compilation album of the Texas bluesman’s work, reissued for the first time. It features new artwork by Tim Kerr, known for his involvement in the US DIY hardcore punk scene.

Courtney Barnett
Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)

Boxing Day Blues (Revisited) by Courtney Barnett is the latest in the Blue Series of singles to be released on Jack White’s Third Man Records. It is also produced by Jack White. The A Side is the postscript to Boxing Day Blues, which closed Barnett’s critically acclaimed Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit album in brilliant yet solemn fashion. The b-side is a cover of Shivers, which was written by Roland S. Howard for the pre-Birthday Party band Boys Next Door. Essential for Courtney Barnett fans!

A-Moms
Strawberry Cheesecake / Modern Noise

Third Man aficionados among you will have spotted the label’s recent Algebra Mothers compilation A-Moms = Algebra Mothers. That LP was an odds-and-sods collection focussed on long-defunct Detroit punks A-Moms. The band only released one single when together, the 1979 split ‘Strawberry Cheesecake’/‘Modern Noise’, so Third Man have decided to complete the circle and reissue that one as well. This is chaotic, maniacal new wave from a group who count Pere Ubu among their fans.

Death From Above 1979
Heads Up Demos

Heads Up Demos, by Canadian elephant-nosed bass and drum duo Death From Above 1979, contains demo versions (believe it or not) of songs from their very first EP which was called Heads Up (believe it or not). It is released on 7” through Third Man Records. The cover comes in three different colours which are distributed at random, so don’t pin yr hopes on getting the lovely green one pictured.

The Morning Echoes Of Detroit
Echoes Of The Gospel

The Morning Echoes Of Detroit are gospel group. They formed way back in the pre-back-in-the-day days of the 1940s. Echoes Of The Gospel was originally released in 1967. Singer/songwriter Kelley Stoltz sent a copy of this album to Third Man Records as a thank you gift. The label were so pleased they decided to reissue it. LP on Third Man Records, remastered from original 1967 master tapes by Warren Defever.

Sleep
The Sciences

Weed obsessed stoner rock legends Sleep release their first album since Dopesmoker on 4/20 as a nod to the code-term in cannabis culture and day of celebratory toking. 'The Sciences' feature six tracks of relentless, stoned and heavy psychedelic metal from chess master Al Cisneros also of Om, High on Fire axe wielder Matt Pike and Neurosis stickman Jason Roeder.

Tanzania Albinism Collective
White African Power (We Live In Danger) / Stigma Everywhere

If you live in Tanzania and are albino, life is damn hard. The country’s albino population have long been attacked, ostracised and persecuted. Many are abandoned by their families on Ukerewe, an inland island that can only be reached by a four-hour ferry trip. In 2016 the Tinariwen producer Ian Brennan travelled to Ukerewe to run songwriting workshops with the island’s albino community. Considering that many of those involved initially had no confidence to either sing or dance, the fact that the Tanzania Albinism Collective have made a record at all is a great triumph. That ‘White African Power (We Live In Danger)’ and ‘Stigma Everywhere’ are such potent pieces of protest music only makes them more necessary.

The White Stripes
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself / Who's To Say

Two covers here, actually: while this 7" project offers one White Stripes single plus one White Stripes cover, "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" was originally written by Burt Bacharach and familiarized by a soft, serenely romantic adaptation by way of Dusty Springfield. There's the Stripes' pretty raw, half-punx version on here, plus "Who's To Say", originally Blanche's. 

The Detroit Cobras
What More / I Can’t Go Back

Just in case any of you were still in any doubt that Jack White doesn’t put on for his hometown, the former White Stripe has signed a band with Detroit in its name to Third Man Records. Let his love for the motor city lie unquestioned until his dying day. Apparently ‘What More’/‘I Can’t Go Back’ are the first new recordings that The Detroit Cobras have released in a decade, though as they’re both covers we can’t go so far as to call them new material. Either way, they are both definitely garage rock.

Escape-ism
Live at Third Man Records

Ian Svenonius - he of Chain And The Gang and The Nation Of Ulysses fame - has been busying himself with his Escape-ism project of late. It sounds pretty much exactly like what you'd imagine a Svenonius solo endeavour would sound like. Live At Third Man Records does a good job of capturing Escape-ism’s freakified Jonathan Richman thing.

The Rebel
Riding In The Sun / Why Must I Pay

Country Teasers mainman Ben Wallers is also The Rebel, and it is under this guise that he does some of his most fascinating work. Outsider punk that peels the genre apart and shows you some of its guts and contradictions. Here The Rebel presents two tracks on a seven inch single on Jack White’s Third Man.

This Is The Kit
Live at Third Man Records

This Is The Kit find the sublime in the humdrum on this new live 7”. Masterminded by Kate Stables, This Is The Kit have been recording since 2003, with records coming out on labels like Rough Trade and Brassland. Recorded live, ‘Cold and Got Colder’ comes out via Third Man Records, and sees Stables further explore her niche of shuffling, disjointed songwriting, pairing subdued soloing with stellar brass interplay.    

Laughing Hyenas
Life of Crime

Life Of Crime was the second album by Michigan garage rock band Laughing Hyenas. Released in 1990, it’s arguably their finest moment, with the band mixing the power of punk with conviction of the blues. It was produced by Butch Vig, and it has been said that it was his work on this album that led him to produce Nirvana’s Nevermind and Sonic Youth’s Dirty. LP on Third Man.

Laughing Hyenas
Hard Times + Crawl / Covers

Laughing Hyenas were a garage rock band from Michigan. Their last album was Hard Times, released in 1995 on Touch & Go. It saw the band eschewing their usual Nick Cave-meets-Iggy Pop aesthetic in favour of some Chicago blues heroes such as Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. This reissue on Third Man pairs the album with their final two EPs, Crawl and Covers. Liner notes by original Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert and Allyson Baker from Dirty Ghosts. Double LP on Third Man Records.

Why?
Live at Third Man Records

Why? are a hip-hop inspired indie band fronted by Yoni Wolf. Following the release of their most recent album, last year's Moh Lhean, Why? played at Third Man Records - the Chocolate Factory to Jack White's Willy Wonka. Live at Third Man Records is a raucous reminder of the night.

Various
A-Square (Of Course)

King Of The Hill Mr. Jack White loves nothing more than a bit of ol’ timey garage rock. Indeed, reissuing lost records by ancient Midwestern proto-punks is probably the thing that drags him into the Third Man Records office every morning. As such, he’s probably loving every minute of A-Square (Of Course). This one’s a compilation LP of Detroit scuzz-rock focussed on the city’s influential A-Square Records. MC5 are on here. A young Iggy Pop plays drums and does the vox for The Prime Movers.

John Lee Hooker
Detroit and Beyond Vol. 2

Third Man Records reissue two volumes of early John Lee Hooker recordings. The Detroit And Beyond records originally emerged in the early 1970's but actually date from much earlier in Hooker’s career. Given their age it's no surprise that these dusty old blues ditties have had a remastering job for this release - done from the original tapes, no less.

Rocket 88 / Come Back Where You Belong
