NME reported yesterday - FULL STORY ON NME HERE
Yowza! Check your collections folks – well actually you’d be pretty lucky to have one of these – only 15 hand-painted copies of 2nd single Lafayette Blues exist. Hand painted by Jack White and label boss Dave Buick the report tells us. And there’s an even rarer collecter’s pieces exist in Detroit furniture.. yet to be discovered. Brilliant!
Jack & Meg White are two of my most admired creatives – the music of course but every other little thing – design, ideas, merch, their choice of support crew, the record label Third Man Records have always and continue to be innovative and laden with integrity…. bloody love it. Hope to cover some more on Third Man in a piece I’m developing on all these amazing labels I get to work with. There are great lessons to be had that could possibly help the NZ music scene… anyway.. I digress!…
THIS SATURDAY 4.10PM – SET YOUR ALARM! Radio NZ National take a very clever look back at the important role NZ played in The White Stripes early career and the importat role The White Stripes played in giving some of our bands a leg-up on the international stage!
It’s the 10th anniversary of the rock sensations first tour to the Pacific – in fact it was just about the first time the White Stripes played outside of their hometown of Detroit – and well before making it big in the United Kingdom.
There’s a raft of White Stripes albums – all worthy of being in your collection but the latest release – Under Great White Northern Lights contains the fantastic documentary and live album that gives a new perspective to the band. Out now on Third Man / XL / Rhythmethod…
