Did Jack White hide vinyl records in these chairs?

White Stripes frontman hid records in upholstered furniture a decade ago

A Reddit user claims to have come across four chairs that could hold hidden Jack White vinyl records within them.

During the early days of the White Stripes, White teamed up with musician friend Brian Muldoon to form The Upholsterers. Both former upholsterers, the pair then hid 100 copies of their song ‘Your Furniture Was Always Dead… I Was Just Afraid To Tell You’ in reupholstered furniture around Detroit in 2004.

Earlier this year, one of the records was found inside a sofa, while two others were found in furniture two years prior.


Reddit user M_Flick has now uploaded a picture of White’s supposed business card from a decade ago, featuring the company name Third Man Upholstery (named after White’s record label Third Man Records).

See the Reddit post here. The user writes: “Jack White Third Man Upholstery, 4 chairs, any value?”

White recently released ‘Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016’, a collection that featured unreleased and alternative mixes from The White Stripes and The Raconteurs, as well as White’s solo music.

White’s Third Man Records label recently published a colouring book. The book features the fictional record company ‘Mann’s Top Tunes’ and explores ‘how a vinyl record is made’.

White has also released a series of White Stripes t-shirts entitled ‘Icky Trump’ a pun on the band’s 2007 album and a protest at Donald Trump using their song ‘Seven Nation Army’ in a promotional video.
