Third Man Brings You 4,6,7,8s Woo=Hoo

Straight from the Third Man website:
We’ve been sitting on this one so long it feels good to finally let it free like some doves at a wedding.

You may know them from “Kill Bill” but let it be known that for many years prior the’s toiled away in their own 1960’s gold-glitter garage universe without the slightest notice from those outside a small circle a like-minded anoraks.

That’s why Third Man is overjoyed to reissue the self-titled LP from Japan’s finest female garage rockers. As its first-ever domestic US release, this album is a long-time personal favorite of Jack White’s and he’s been known to break into “I Walk Like Jayne Mansfield” (a veritable classic included on this LP) without notice during White Stripes live performances. Couple that with impeccable covers of “Harlem Nocturne”, “Long Tall Sally” as well other originals and what you get is as close to a modern garage “must-have” as there is.

Third Man spared no expense with this project from the gold-foil embossing on the old-style, tip-on LP cover (something the band wanted on the original issue of the record but which was not feasible at the time) to the limited edition, split-color black and gold pressing...this project was a labor of love. Split-colors will only be available randomly in mail orders. No copies will be sold from Third Man.

SO...To celebrate our monumental 2nd mind blowing re-issue this year (see Jon Wayne) the go go garage girls are dropping by from Japan to play their first show in America in several years! That’s right, the 5,6,7,8’s are playing Live at Third Man Records on Oct. 22nd. I can hear you wondering already if the show is going to be recorded for a live album. Aren’t you astute? Of course it is. And we wouldn’t have one of our favorite bands crossing continents and oceans and not stop by Third Man Studios for a Blue Series would we? WELL WOULD WE???
