  • Smoke Fairies - Record of the Week

    Posted by Third Man on 23 July 2013

    This week's Nice Price Record of the Week comes to us via London's finger-picking, slide-playing purveyors of dreamy, harmony-laden folk/pop, Smoke Fairies

    This early entry into the Third Man catalog features a host of TMR stalwarts backing up Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davis. Not only does Jack White produce and play drums, timpani and guitar, but Jack Lawrence (Raconteurs, Dead Weather, Greenhornes) is on bass, Corey Younts (Buzzards, Old Crow Medicine Show) plays piano and clarinet, and Shelby O'Neal (Black Belles) adds additional drum work. 

    All in all, a terrific all star entry into our Blue Series. And, available this week at a real NICE PRICE.

  • Detroit Rock City Discussion Recap

    Posted by Third Man on 18 July 2013

    Last night, Third Man proudly hosted a panel discussing five decades of Detroit rock 'n' roll. With panelists spanning across all five decades, the topics discussed were wide-reaching, informative, and often times humorous. The night began with a screening of 15 minutes of 16mm footage of the MC5 and the Stooges that had only been shown publicly once previously. The conversation was peppered with unreleased studio recordings by The Chosen Few (featuring a pre-Stooges Ron Asheton and Scott Richardson), The Go (featuring Jack White on guitar), and The White Stripes. Third Man will make a podcast download of the evening's conversation available in the near future. Sorry folks, the recordings were for the live audience only. Copies of Steve Miller's Detroit Rock City are still available for purchase in our Nashville storefront.

  • Light and Sound Machine Presents... ICE, A Robert Kramer Film

    Posted by Third Man on 11 July 2013

    ICE directed by Robert Kramer, USA, 1970, presented on 16mm film

    Guerrilla filmmaking in every sense, Kramer’s independent/underground, cinéma-vérité/science-fiction boundary-crosser used a budget of only $12,000 to produce an ambitious imagining of America in the throes of armed insurrection. The story is set in a vaguely defined future (which, à la Godard’s ALPHVILLE, looks just like the present) in which an unpopular U.S. war in Mexico provokes a left-wing uprising. Concerned with the nuts-and-bolts of revolutionary action and the debilitating effects of infighting among radical groups, ICE is in many ways the fictional equivalent of Chris Marker’s A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT. 16mm. (MR)
