Early Jack White Singles Found Hidden In Furniture
In the early 2000s, Jack White was in the Upholsterers, a short-lived project with fellow Detroit musician and drummer Brian Muldoon (of the Muldoons). The duo pressed 100 copies of their second single, “Your Furniture Was Always Dead … I Was Just Afraid To Tell You,” and then hid them in furniture being reupholstered by Muldoon at the business he worked at. White and Muldoon hid these singles ten years ago, in 2004, and apparently two people have only now reported finding them. Third Man Records shared the album cover art, designed by the Detroit-based artist Gordon Newton. There’s no word yet on whether or not these singles will be re-pressed for purchase, but you should probably start tearing into your old furniture now.
