To celebrate the publication of one of the most anticipated books of the year, TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop, Third Man Books is beyond excited to present legendary and legend-making musician Iggy Pop in conversation with author Jeff Gold. They will appear in Detroit on October 25 at Third Man Records Cass Corridor, and on November 4 in New York City at Rizzoli Bookstore. These events will be open to the public with admittance first come, first serve.
TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop is the first time the story of this seminal band has been told entirely in Pop's own words and features a cache of never before seen images. Pop's candid, bare-all account is the incredible tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol, and music business realities, collapsed and nearly 30 years later reformed, recording and touring to great acclaim. In 2010 The Stooges—credited with having invented punk rock—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their continuing influence can be felt today in the shape and sound of rock-n-roll music. TOTAL CHAOS:The Story of The Stooges / As Told By Iggy Pop will be available from Third Man Books in November 2016.
"What does it mean to be Iggy Pop, five decades of being 'the wildest man in rock'? Iggy Pop is many things. Rock Star. Singer, Rebel. Primitive. Stooge. The Jean Genie, Passenger. Legend." - Johnny Marr
About Iggy Pop and Jeff Gold:
James Newell Osterberg Jr., known professionally as Iggy Pop, is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor. He was the founder and vocalist of influential proto-punk band The Stooges, who reunited in 2003, and in 2010 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Pop's music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, from garage and punk rock to forays into jazz and blues. Pop's best known songs include "Lust for Life," "The Passenger," "Real Wild Child (Wild One)," "China Girl,” “Nightclubbing," and the Stooges classics "Search and Destroy" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog.” In March 2016, Pop released his highest charting album ever, Post Pop Depression, a collaboration with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal).
Author Jeff Gold is a music historian, author, former record label executive, and Grammy Award winner. He has been profiled by Rolling Stone as one of the five “top collectors of high-end music memorabilia.” As Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. Records and a VP at A&M Records, Gold worked with Iggy Pop, Prince, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Police, and Cat Stevens. A four-time Grammy nominated Art Director, he won the 1990 Best Album Package Grammy for Suzanne Vega’s Days of Open Hand. Gold has consulted for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Experience Music Project, and appeared as an expert on PBS’ History Detectives. Gold and colleague Laura Woolley also appraised The Bob Dylan Archive now housed at the University of Tulsa. His discovery of previously undocumented tapes has led to major label releases including Bob Dylan in Concert at Brandeis University 1963. Gold’s 2012 book 101 Essential Rock Records: The Golden Age of Vinyl, From The Beatles to the Sex Pistols was one of eight books chosen by Rolling Stone as “the year’s best reading material.” Gold owns music collectibles website Record Mecca and writes about topics of interest to collectors on its blog.

Swap Meet starts at 5pm, Movies start at 7pm
Join us Friday October 28th at Third Man Nashville where we'll transform our Blue Room into what we can only describe as "Dad's basement from the 80's" for a night of the weirdest and most depraved rare psychotronic horror films you'll ever see... on VHS and all hand selected from the infamous New Vague VHS archives.
Yep, that's right. We're inviting you guys over to hang out on the couch and watch movies with us. So get a space on one of our couches or bean bags, cover yourself with grandma's afghan and have a drink. The bar will be stocked with only the finest of intoxicants you remember from your misspent teenage years, Boons Farm Wine, Mad Dog 2020, Busch Light... Eat popcorn out of coffee filters, and argue with each other on the merits of getting just that right shade of red in your fake on-screen blood. Watch the wood paneling spin as you get more then your fill of blood splattering, Devil worshiping, eyeball gouging, stabby stabbing, demon possessing, bad acting, poor quality tape tracking VHS after VHS in glorious clamshell cases.
And if that's not enough, come early for a VHS Swap Meet with vendors and collectors from the Nashville area. Buy, trade, be social in the real world!
Last night, Jack took to the stage at The Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN for a special four song acoustic performance on the season premiere of A Prairie Home Companion hosted by Chris Thile in support of his career-spanning acoustic album. Backed by Lillie Mae Rische, Dominic Davis, and Fats Kaplin, Jack performed “City Lights,” (off Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016) “Carolina Drama,” “(Margie’s At) The Lincoln Park Inn,” and was joined by very special guest Margo Price for a rendition of The White Stripes’ “I’m Lonely (But I Ain’t That Lonely Yet).” Watch highlights from the show below, including Jack’s first performance together with Margo, and listen to a full audio archive of the episode at prairiehome.org.
SINGER-SONGWRITER-MUSICIAN SETS TO WORK ON NEXT SOLO ALBUM WITH JACK WHITE PRODUCING
SET TO APPEAR WITH WHITE ON A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION THIS SATURDAY
TEAMED WITH LANGHORNE SLIM FOR THIRD MAN & LUCK REUNION ‘LUCK MANSION SESSIONS’
We are so pleased to announce Lillie Mae Rische as the latest member of our growing roster. Lillie Mae is well-beloved by Third Man fans, who will be pleased to hear that she currently at work recording her much anticipated solo album with Jack White producing.
“Lillie Mae has been performing on stage since she was 3 years old,” said White. “She is an incredible writer who can play an array of instruments and has paid her dues from the honky-tonks on Broadway to stages around the world. She is a beloved artist in Nashville, and I think it is safe to say that she is one in a billion. You wont find anyone else quite like this woman no matter how long you live.”
“I'm proud to have become a part of the Third Man family, where there is no shortage of hard work and dedication to creating and making available the music we love so,” Rische said. “I'm forever thankful to Jack for believing in me and giving me a chance and all the freedom I've needed to make this album.”
The album follows Rische’s debut single, “Nobody’s” b/w “The Same Eyes,” released in 2014 as part of Third Man’s ongoing Blue Series. Discovered by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement when playing with her family band The Rische’s (formerly Jypsi), comprised of sisters Amber-Dawn, Scarlett, and Grace, and brother Frank, the country outfit can often still be heard at the historic Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville. Rische has also spent considerable time as a member of White’s crack touring and recording combo, playing fiddle and mandolin while also lending vocals to such tracks as “Temporary Ground,” from 2014’s LAZARETTO. She will once again join White on fiddle and backing vocals for a special acoustic performance on A Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile this Saturday, October 15th, along with Dominic Davis and Fats Kaplin. The show will be broadcast live around the world from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN at 5pm CT via www.prairiehome.org.
Rische also recently partnered with Langhorne Slim to record two songs as part of Third Man & Luck Reunion’s Luck Mansion Sessions during AmericanaFest in Nashville this past September. The songs will be released on 7-inch vinyl with an accompanying video in early 2017. Watch a sneak peek video of the sessions below...
