Third Man Releases King Tuff Live Album, Preps Concert LP from the Melvins
Published Aug 20, 2013Not only is Third Man Records known for its quirky vinyl curious, the Jack White-helmed label has recruited an impressive assortment of artists for its Live at Third Man Records series of in-house concert LPs. The latest act to get a live release through the imprint is garage rocker King Tuff.
The set was recorded at Third Man's Nashville facility more than a year ago, on July 13, 2012 (the superstitious may want to note that this was a Friday), at an all-ages matinée gig.
See the tracklist below, and scroll past that to stream "Just Strut." The label writes in an announcement, "Try and tell us it doesn't make you wanna spray paint 'Tuff Enough' on your locker and then kick flip off the back of an AMC Ambassador and skate off into nighttime oblivion…"
If you're suitably impressed, the album is available to order here.
Scroll past the tracklist to see King Tuff's upcoming live schedule, which includes Canadian shows with Wavves and Jacuzzi Boys in Toronto and Vancouver.
The next live album from Third Man will feature the Melvins, who performed in May as part of the label's direct-to-acetate system. Their release will drop on September 10.
