Spotted! Jack White’s early band The Upholsterers 2nd single found in…their upholstery

Before Jack White became a rock and roll God, he started a one-man business of his own, Third Man Upholstery in 1997 after completing his apprenticeship. The slogan of his business was “Your Furniture’s Not Dead” and the color scheme was yellow and black—including a yellow van, a yellow-and-black uniform, and a yellow clipboard. Although Third Man Upholstery never lacked business, he claims it was unprofitable due to his complacency about money and his business practices that were perceived as unprofessional, including making bills out in crayon and writing poetry inside the furniture.

And also hiding his early recordings in the upholstery.

Recently Third Man Records has been made aware of the discovery of two different copies found by two separate individuals of the 2nd single bye Upholsterers. This duo, comprising of actual upholsterers Jack White and Brian Muldoon, pressed 100 copies of this single and proceeded to hide them in furniture being reupholstered by Muldoon in 2004, in celebration of his 25th year in the business.
