Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, it's Monday afternoon in the USA. Go ahead and snap out of that daydream you call a three-day weekend and listen carefully. Third Man Records is pleased to announce that our second foray into the world of fine art and gallery openings will feature not only the impeccable linocuts and artwork of HAZE XXL (Tom Hazelmyer) but also the WORLD PREMIERE of Color of Noise, a documentary directed by Eric Robel exploring the character of the American underground during the rather explosive heyday of grunge.
RECIDIVIST NEOIST CROMAGNON STOMP is the latest installment in HAZE XXL's (Tom Hazelmyer) ongoing exploration of art intersecting music. The exhibition will touch on 20+ years of creating groundbreaking art for his seminal indie label AMPHETAMINE REPTILE RECORDS, showcasing Hazelmyer’s hand-carved and hand-printed fine art linocuts, often found on hand-made, ultra-small edition art records that have people traveling from around the world to attend shows in order to get their hands on a copy.
Eric Robel's COLOR OF NOISE is an exceptional look at the integrity of the American underground starting in the late 80's through the mid 90's, specifically targeting forerunners of the grunge movement, the collision of punk rock and printmaking, and beyond. Check the trailer below for a closer look...
