    Posted by Third Man on 7 December 2011

    We've been working overtime (double, triple, octagonal...) to rush out all orders so you all will have the new merchandise and White Stripes singles everyone has been ordering in time for Christmas.

    Just a reminder that Iphone cases will begin shipping next Monday the 12th. While we cannot GUARANTEE that all items will be there in time for Christmas (mainly international with customs delays, etc...) we can guarantee that we will ship all items asap as soon as we receive your order. SO in order to give us a chance to get your merchandise to you as quickly as possible, please order sooner rather then later. Because Christmas just aint Christmas without a 45 case full of records under the tree...

  • The White Stripes Singles Tri-Colors & John C Reilly Show News

    Posted by Third Man on 1 December 2011

    As you all may well know by now, December 6th we’ll be releasing four White Stripes 7” reissues. There will be 300 red/black/white Tri-Colors of “The Big Three Killed My Baby” and “Lord, Send Me An Angel” and 100 of each of these will be for sale in our Nashville store on the 6th. We won’t be doing Tri-Colors for “Candy Cane Children” as the limited edition red vinyl of this 45 was released last year with the gift set we offered and “Hello Operator” was released as a picture disc 45 with The Vault earlier this year.

    As we mentioned a few days ago that we would not be selling the Tri-Color records for John & Tom and Becky & John at our Third Man Store, but...

      On December 15th John C. Reilly will perform a special record release show at Largo in Los Angeles with Becky Stark, Tom Brosseau and VERY special guests. Friendly representatives from Third Man Records will be on hand to sell 100 Tri-Color copies of both singles but that’s not all...we’ll also be selling 100 copies each of the aforementioned White Stripes Tri-Colors as well as an assortment of regular Third Man releases and merchandise. This will include ALL of the new products we’ve recently announced:

  • The Third Man Records iPhone Case

    Posted by Third Man on 30 November 2011

    2011 has been a year of unique collaborations for Third Man Records; Stephen Colbert and garage rock goth girl group The Black Belles, Insane Clown Posse and Mozart, and now our newest mash up, vinyl and the iPhone. Nothing goes together better than vinyl records and technology. With that in mind TMR teamed up with Griffin Technology to create a unique product for a unique generation of music lovers who own one of the most popular smart phones on the market. The Third Man 45 iPhone Case. The Third Man 45 iPhone Case comes in a variety of options and features components made from 7” vinyl records from Third Man’s extensive catalog, all pressed at United Record Pressing in Nashville.

    Along with the folks at Third Man, the team at Griffin shares a love of all things vinyl - the immediate and tangible aspect of a record and the experience each listener shares with the music that lies within the grooves of the record. Griffin also calls Nashville home, which made this collaboration all the more accessible and natural. The Griffin team has worked tirelessly with Third Man to bend and mold each piece of this custom project and facilitated the creation of the most accurate reflection of what Third Man represents in a very new and exciting form.

    To create The Third Man 45 iPhone Case for use with the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, we incorporated a genuine 7” vinyl record, pressed by United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN. The records were then die-cut to create the backs of each case. A molded bumper frame snaps around your iPhone, holding the interchangeable record insert in place and protecting the controls, edges and screen of your precious iPhone.

    The Third Man 45 iPhone Case is available in three different variations. You can purchase your Third Man case with a yellow, black, or white frame and each version of the frame comes with 1 black vinyl record back featuring our classic Third Man printed label.

    But that’s not all. We went a step further and created three additional record backs featuring some of our prominent Third Man artists. The Interchangeable iPhone Record Inserts come packaged as a set and are for use with your Third Man 45 iPhone Case. This add-on accessory set for your Third Man iPhone 45 Case includes:
    • 1 white vinyl record back cut from The White Stripes “Candy Cane Children” single
    • 1 black vinyl record back cut from The Raconteurs “Steady, As She Goes” single from their first album Broken Boy Soldiers. These Raconteurs inserts represent the first pressing of this single soon to be available as a reissue from Third Man.
    • 1 yellow vinyl record back cut from The Dead Weather single “Treat Me Like Your Mother” from their first album Horehound

    The Third Man 45 iPhone Case and Interchangeable iPhone Record Inserts will be available for pre-order from www.thirdmanrecords.com starting tomorrow, December 1st. Both components will begin shipping the 9th of December and will be available for purchase in person at the Third Man Records Nashville store beginning December 10th.

    The Third Man 45 iPhone Case - $29.99

    • Custom made polycarbonate frame with volume, headphone, hold switch and dock connector cutouts holds each record insert in place
    • Frame available in yellow, black, or white – EACH SOLD SEPARATELY
    • 1 frame / 1 black vinyl record back included

    Interchangeable iPhone Record Inserts - $19.99
