We've long been fans of Quintron and Miss Pussycat. They did shows with the White Stripes on their Drum Buddy instructional tour and their live gigs have always been an electric swamp tech jam party extreme. Let's show March out like a lion and witness the legendary Q+P commit their madness live to wax.
Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Tickets will go on sale in the Third Man Records Shop on Tuesday, March 20th at 10am.
If you are in Austin for SXSW and can't wait to buy the 7" vinyl single for "Sixteen Saltines" on Tuesday, then your wait is over. You can purchase the single exclusively at the Third Man Records Rolling Record Store tomorrow, March 16th! Check twitter for the stores locations throughout the day. And if you aren't in Austin, you can still pre-order your copy now.
Continuing in the mission of reissuing the nuggets of the White Stripes’ back catalog, Third Man plays Dr. Frankenstein/matchmaker to two stand-alone songs from the high time of the year 2000. “Handsprings” was originally released as a split-single with the Dirtbombs and included free in issue #19 of Multiball magazine. “Red Death at 6:14” was initially released on the Jack White-produced compilation “Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit” and was later made available as a one-sided single from the folks at MOJO magazine. Both songs are quintessential White Stripes jams and finally pairing them together here makes (arguably) one of the best Stripes singles ever.
Karen Elson delivers a haunting version of the Jackson C. Frank gem “Milk and Honey” that brims with atmosphere and undeniable feeling. The b-side is a trucking version of Bonnie Dobson’s “Winter’s Going” that warms to the core. Another direct hit from Miss Elson.
And for release during the week of Record Store Day...
Commercial release of the Killer’s killer live set at Third Man’s 2011 Record Store Day celebrations, complete with crack backing band featuring Steve Cropper, Jim Keltner and Jack Lawrence. Includes ace takes on such classics as “Sweet Little Sixteen”, “Great Balls of Fire” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.”
