• Tintype Portraits at Third Man

    Photographer Giles Clement will be setting up shop in our Blue Room this Friday and Saturday shooting tintype portraits. This is open to the public, and any interested parties should head to www.gilesclement.com to schedule a session.

    In the tradition of artists and tradesmen of generations past, portrait photographer Giles Clement has taken his studio on the road. Clement uses the tintype method of photography to create unique silver images on sheets of black metal. Tintyping was popular in the late 1800’s, but was quickly abandoned as less difficult and more reliable methods of portraiture were invented. Clement’s camera equipment is antique – some of it more than 160 years old. In harmony with old methods and equipment, he uses modern lighting and technologies to capture the faces, and often the souls, of a new generation of artists, inventors and pioneers.

  • The Truth About Vescovo – A Message From Nurse Hopper

    I am Nurse Nancy Hopper, the last survivor of the outbreak at Vescovo & Co’s London clinic. I don’t have long left but wanted you to know the truth. You are receiving this message because you appear on the Vescovo database and may be at risk. Here is the only footage I could salvage from that night.

    Be careful.

  • Otis James Nashville

    While questions regarding the origin of our uniforms used to be posed mainly to the ladies of TMR, ever since we upgraded the Third Man menswear to include an Otis James necktie, our fine gentlemen staff members are getting the same frequent inquiries. So, why not introduce you to the man behind the tie? Otis James is a former tuxedo-shop-workin', cross-country-bicyclin', good old fashioned hard worker. His neckties and bowties are handmade one-by-one by Otis and his small staff just 5 minutes down the road from TMR headquarters. What luck! Check out Otis' wares here.

  • Lazaretto ULTRA LP Best Selling Vinyl Album of 2014

    We are so pleased to report that, with your support, not only are vinyl record sales continuing to climb in general, but Jack White's Lazaretto ULTRA LP has been reported by Billboard as being the biggest selling vinyl record of the year as well as the biggest selling vinyl record of any year since Pearl Jam's Vitalogy album in 1994.

    We can't thank you enough for helping Jack and Third Man Records spread the word about just how good music can sound when it's pressed onto wax, and your support of this release means the world.

  • Record of the Week

    We LOVE Beck. We love his records, old and new. We love when he does things like invite another guy we love on stage to help him knock out an encore of classics, and we love that his Song Reader sheet music has been recently brought to life. But, all this aside, what do we love best about Beck? His country-tinged and decidedly misanthropic Third Man Blue Series single "I Just Started Hating Some People Today" of course! The irony is not lost on us.

    This single features a band of TMR All Stars: Jack White on drums, Dean Fertita wearing many hats, Fats Kaplin on fiddle and pedal steel, and Karen Elson doing some jazz vocals. Point is, if this is missing from your personal Blue Series collection, it's time to fix that, because....

    ...It's our Record of the Week! Get it.
