Here's a hot deal for the day, from Third Man Records:
"On Monday October 26th Third Man Records releases The Dead Weather's "I Cut Like a Buffalo", this is the third single from The Dead Weather, written and sung by Jack White, with a West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band cover "A Child of a Few Hours is Burning To Death" on the B-side. This record will NOT come as limited tri-color vinyl as a tri-color vinyl already exists of this in the form of an earlier promotional pressing. However that's not to say we aren't giving you something special, so the first 100 sold in the Third Man Shop in Nashville will come with a limited edition DVD of the two videos for I Cut Like a Buffalo, filmed here at Third Man Record.
For those of you who can't make it to the shop, you can pre-order the vinyl now at our online store HERE."
The students at Dublin's Trinity College got quite the surprise last night, per NME.com:
"The White Stripes' Jack White gave a surprise lecture at Dublin's Trinity College last night (October 18).
Leaving aside his guitar, White engaged in a highly philosophical discussion, where he talked candidly about his musical beliefs. Students who were expecting a straightforward interview seemed surprised by White’s sophisticated engagement with philosophy, and theories on anxiety and authenticity."
Here's some exciting news for Vault members. Several websites have posted this info, but this is lifted from NME.com:
