  • BILLY WAYNE DAVIS LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS

    Posted by Third Man on 16 December 2016

    You don't need to be from the South to understand Billy Wayne Davis' particular brand of cutting humor, but being the Nashvillians Third Man Records is (both transplanted and native), this up-and-comer is one of our favorite used-to-be local (and soon-to-go-global) stand-up comedians. Davis has gone from surprising crowds at the comedy club down the road with his "sharp-tongued-twang," to conquering the alt comedy scene of Seattle, to hangin' with Marc Maron, opening for Sturgill Simpson, winning over millions on Last Comic Standing, starring in a Morgan Spurlock produced documentary about Freedom, and working with the likes of Greg Giraldo, Louis CK, and Mitch Hedberg along the way.

    Davis, now living in Los Angeles, headed back to Nashville while on tour last Spring and left the Blue Room audience in stitches. Third Man Records is thrilled to relive the night and share the comedic stylings Tennessee's much-missed "small-town-smart-mouth" with the masses, adding another catalog number to what is becoming a pretty formidable collection of comedy records, including offerings from Reggie Watts, Rory Scovel, Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Conan O'Brien, Neil Hamburger, and more.

    The Billy Wayne Davis Live at Third Man Records 12" LP comes with a download code for a video of Davis' complete set. Third Man Records Vault members can also watch the set in its entirety NOW.

    Check out a clip of the live show below, and get your copy of the record (out today!!!) NOW. While you wait for your LP to arrive, catch Billy Wayne on the road at a comedy club near you.

  • THIRD MAN HARDWARE Spotlight On... Critter & Guitari Septavox Keyboard and Terz Amplifier

    Posted by Third Man on 16 December 2016

    AVAILABLE NOW!

    Critter & Guitari are makers of amazingly enjoyable audio machines. Made in the USA.

    The Septavox synthesizer, designed specifically for Third Man Records, has 41 keys, 7 modes, 7 tones. One button selects the synth mode, and one button selects the tone. Each button has a LED indicating the setting. With the seven modes and seven tones there are 49 possible sound settings, each one easily remembered as two color combinations: red and yellow, blue and white, and so on.

    The Terz Amplifier, also designed specifically for Third Man Records, is a hybrid of classic analog amplification circuitry and cutting edge power electronics. It is a portable, loud amp that sounds great while using only four rechargeable ‘AA’ batteries. Alluding to the “three” in Third Man, the amp has just three controls: High and low frequency gain and volume. The speaker grill design also riffs on the idea of “three.” The name ‘Terz’, meaning “third” in German, is a name of smaller classical guitars - we thought it fitting considering the size of the amp! There are two analog gain/distortion circuits behind the sound of the amp. The left knob controls the amount of silicon diode distortion and low frequency adjustment. The center knob controls the amount of germanium diode distortion for high end crunch. The right knob controls the overall volume of the amp.
