    Great interview with Jack White on the Sound Opinions podcast. Didn't realize he has never met Rob Jones and never wants to, very interesting.

    Wow I'm surprised how many really prefer the girl band to the guy band. They both kill it. the Wiltern shows were something else and the night guys played was absolutely amazing. Jack knocking down symbols, going nuts on the piano and keyboard with Ike, all while smiling the whole time. But out of the two Shrine shows the girl night was indeed better.

    Also, was that a little but of Blue Orchid I heard at the end of I'm Slowly Turning Into You on the first night?

    Great performance, totally lame crowd. I love how the homeboy on the piano can't fuckin stop. "Slowy Turning Into You" is the greatest song ever and I must hear it live, I don't give a shit if it's without Meg.

    That's Ikey Owens on piano! That guy has been on the scene since the mid 90's, starting out in local ska bands. Feel like I saw him play several times a week at shows back then, cool guy, crazy talent.

    He's part of the male touring band, at least according to wiki:

    "Owens plays keyboards in Jack White's backup bank called Los Buzzardos, an all male band, which is one of two backup bands White performs with when performing solo, the other being The Peacocks, an all female band. As of the Summer of 2012 Owens is on world tour in support of White's album Blunderbuss."

    Good god. I love Jack White

    from the Vault today...

    -New second building opening at TMR including the first ever venue with a live sound to vinyl lathe, so now the shows, rather than being recorded live to tape will be recorded live to acetate disc.
    -10.6.2012 Grand reopening show with THE SHINS and Low Cut Connie. The Shins will record a live at TMR release (black & blue split color for attendees)
    -10.10.2012 THE KILLS and Two Tears show. The Kills will record a live at TMR release (black & blue for attendees)
    -10.26.2012 SEASICK STEVE with Promised Land. Seasick Steve will record a live at TMR release (Black & blue for attendees), Promised Land will record a live at TMR 45 (black & blue for attendees)
    -Triple Decker Public Nuisance LP released the morning of the Shins show at TMR and on the Rolling Record Store.

    The thing we are most excited about is our newly installed record cutting lathe and vinyl mastering suite that fans will be able to view from inside the Blue Room. The live experience will be greatly enhanced as fans can not only watch the live show but see the show being recorded, mixed and mastered LIVE to an acetate disc via the viewing window and a two camera monitor system. Making this the ONLY live to acetate venue in the world. Oh, and did we mention the lathe was once in residence at King Records in Cincinnati? That means records from anyone from James Brown, Hank Ballard, Charlie Feathers or any number of incredible artists could have been cut on this machine back in it's heyday. Maybe even the original 'I'm Shakin'" by Little Willie John! All the headline acts in October will be recorded using this new system. We can't wait for everyone to see it in action.
    Night #1 Enjoy!

    Can't Stop Jack White!

    Third Man Records is inviting you, your family (yes, even those creepy cousins from the kids table) and loved ones to join us the day following Thanksgiving, also known as BLACK FRIDAY, for the Grand Opening of The Third Man Records Novelty Lounge. We've expanded our record shop space and it's now equipped with a dazzling array of coin operated contraptions and attractions guaranteed to pop your peepers and flip your wig. Dig?

    Thrill your eyes and ears with Third Man's new Scopitone machine!

    For the uninitiated, Scopitones were a type of jukebox that instead of playing records played 16mm music videos. Doing what we do best at Third Man (combining the state-of-the-art with the beauty and soul of the past) visitors to the Third Man Novelties Lounge can choose from 36 different videos from the Third Man catalog, ALL on 16mm film with high-fidelity optical sound using a laser instead of magnetic tape...the only Scopitone in the world to do so. It's also the only Scopitone in the world playing modern music videos (is it the only working Scopitone in a public place AT ALL? you tell us).

    Learn more about Scopitones and see some old films here: scopitones.blogs.com

    After over twelve months in the making, Third Man Records is excited to unveil their very own custom Mold-a-Rama machine. Usually found at zoos or museums, these machines spit out brightly colored wax/plastic molds of everything from a John Deer Tractor, a tyrannosaurus or a bust of President Kennedy. TMR's machine is currently outfitted to pump out a fire-engine red miniature of Jack White's classic Airline guitar from the White Stripes and we're already planning on additional molds to swap out in the future.

    Visit moldomania.com for all kinds of history and classic photos of the Mold-a-Rama world.

    And last but most certainly not least, you can now take a strip of film photographs as a memento of your visit to Third Man in our all-analog Dip 'n' Dunk, full-color Third Man Records Photo Booth. This booth used to be located in our live venue Blue Room, but now we finally have space for customers to access it in the new expanded store. Just so you know, this ain't no lame digital photo booth at your local mall movieplex. These are real photographs developed in a miniature photo lab darkroom inside the machine (known amongst analog aficionados as a "dip and dunk" machine).

    To top it all off, all this gadgetry operatates on newly-minted Third Man Records custom tokens! Why not pick up a bunch and throw 'em in Junior's stocking this Christmas? Seriously... why not?

    To celebrate the occasion and to get in the spirit of Record Store Day's annual Black Friday event, we'll have some limited edition vinyl for sale in our shop and also be holding a pretty mighty sale in the store and in on our online shop as well. Available at Third Man only will be 100 Tri Color 45s of Jack White's I'm Shakin single. We'll also have for the first time anywhere, our brand new Tempest Storm Green Series (TMR 129) single (WORLDWIDE RELEASE DATE, TBA!). While a Green Series spoken word record with the world's oldest burlesque dancer Tempest Storm would usually be enough to get worked up about, we've gone the extra mile with this release. The record is a picture disc that, when coupled with some household items (flashlight, drinking glass) and not-so-household items (magical Bolt-a-Trope disc...provided!) turns into a quick keyhole peek-a-boo glimpse at the wonderful Miss Storm performing her patented tease. The effect truly needs to be seen to be believed and is in the style of one of the original "motion picture" methods called a zoetrope.

    Now, let's talk about The White Stripes! To go along with the previously announced Limited Edition Opaque Red Vinyl re-issue singles from The White Stripes from the White Blood Cells album (listed below) we also have some in-store Black Friday goodies available. For example... An authorized re-print of the first ever White Stripes silk-screened poster done by Von Munz (50 copies for sale on Friday), White Stripes Turntables... AND MORE.

    I'd like to address the recent tabloidesque drama baiting by the press in regards to Lady Gaga. I never said anything about her music, or questioned the authenticity of her songs in any way. I was in a conversation about the drawbacks of image for the sake of image, and that it is popular nowadays to not question an image in front of you, but only to label it as "cool" or "weird" quickly and dispose of it. I don't like my comments about lady gaga's presentation being changed into some sort of negative critique of her music. If you're going to try to cause drama, at least get the quotes right. I think journalists should also be held accountable for what they say. Especially publications like the NME who put whatever words they feel like between two quotation marks and play it off as a quote. Maybe somebody with more lawyers can take them to task, but i'll just use the Internet and Twitter instead. I also think that kind of tabloid drama encourages artists to not express their opinions in the press, and instead give polite soundbites that don't stimulate thought about creativity and the consumption of art in its many guises.

    Peace to Lady Gaga and I fully congratulate and compliment her on her championing of gay rights issues and the momentum it's given to help create change.

    Thank you.

    Jack White

    Amongst other things, the fiercely opinionated White gives his take on Twitter (not keen), the state of modern celebrity (also not keen) and Lady Gaga (even less keen). ďI donít think she lives it because itís all artifice,Ē says White of Gaga. ďItís all image with no meaning behind it. You canít sink your teeth into it. Itís a sound bite. Itís very of this age, because thatís what people want.Ē

    New Vault package! I can't wait for this one...

    1) The LP for this round of the Vault is the first-ever live show by a short-lived band called Jack White and the Bricks. Featuring Jack White on vocals and guitar, Brendan Benson (the Raconteurs) on guitar, Kevin Peyok (the Waxwings, the See-See) on bass and Ben Blackwell (the Dirtbombs) on drums, the band gigged for only a few short months in 1999. Focusing mainly on covers and White-penned tracks that had yet to have been appropriated by his main concern the White Stripes, this live show took place on White's 24th birthday, July 9th, 1999. Sharing a bill with the Greenhornes, the stage itself was situated on lanes 11-14 (yes, the actual bowling lanes!) of the legendary Garden Bowl in Detroit. While being the longest continually-run bowling establishment in North America, the Garden Bowl, along with the Gold Dollar, was also the de facto home of the then-bustling Detroit garage rock scene. The final song of the night, a blistering cover of Michigan's 60's garage legends ? and the Mysterians "Ain't It a Shame" is to "a girl who has to go get surgery soon"...a heartfelt dedication Jack sent out to band mate Meg White prior to a tonsillectomy operation. The show was recorded to four-track reel-to-reel in lane ten by an engineer who, although forgotten to time, left his imprint on the recording with a few track cut-outs and slight audio imperfections. These mild flaws notwithstanding, the vocal performance is extremely fierce and the show captures all four musicians at the height of the Detroit garage rock scene playing with unbridled energy.

    https://soundcloud.com/thirdmanrecor...orever/s-23Okc

    Tracklist:
    Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
    Isis (Bob Dylan)
    Do
    Same Boy You've Always Known
    The Union Forever
    Now Mary
    Black Jack Davy (traditional)
    I Threw It All Away (Bob Dylan)
    Ain't It a Shame (? and the Mysterians)

    2) Drawing from that same time period and the same collaboration-happy times this Vault package features the pre-Raconteurs demo of "Steady, As She Goes" by Jack White and Brendan Benson. Recorded at Benson's East Grand Studios in his Detroit home in May of 2004, all the signifying parts of the classic song are existent and there, but it would take the incomparable touch of Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler to get the song to its classic state that fans know and love from the Raconteurs. On the flip side is a full-band orchestration of Jack and Brendan nailing "The Same Boy You've Always Known" in 1999 a full two years before it would appear on the White Stripes "White Blood Cells" album, and in a much different state. This single serves as a wonderful document of the germinations of what would become the fruitful songwriting partnership between White and Benson in the Raconteurs.

    https://soundcloud.com/thirdmanrecor...d-jack/s-WZppy

    3) The bonus item this go-round is a behind-the-scenes tour travelog film entitled "White Heat" and packaged in a splendid digital versatile disc. Shot and edited by Brad Holland (Whirlwind Heat) the film follows the Heat and the White Stripes on their European tour during the winter of 2002. Backstage tomfoolery, onstage pranks, the Louvre, brief insight into the malaise that is life on the road...it all culminates in a previously unseen live performance by Whirlwind Heat of "The Big Three Killed My Baby" with Jack White as featured vocalist. This is definitely a side of the White Stripes you have never seen before along with explosive and unseen footage of Whirlwind Heat in thier prime.

    This is really exciting....

    Third Man Records is thrilled to announce the release of the first three records in our highly-anticipated Document Records reissue series.

    Keep up the good work Jack! Can't wait for your Grammy performance on Sunday. Last time, it was pretty magical...Quentin Tarantino was loving it!

    Jack White has been on a whirlwind lately - less than a year ago he released his debut solo album Blunderbuss, and besides all the touring and promotion surrounding that, he's been spending time recording several interesting projects (including, but not limited to, collaborations with Radiohead and Gibby Haynes). The White/Haynes track "Paul's Not Home" debuted this morning and can be heard below (scroll down to the end of this post). Besides all of that and keeping Third Man Records going, White recently revealed to the BBC he's been busy writing 20 songs for a new record!

    <3 Jack White<3 So much going on all the time....Third Man Records Music Festival???

    It's been a busy week at the Nashville offices of Jack White's label, Third Man Records. White has taken meetings with potential new artists and promoters pitching a local music festival, and he personally edited a Web video about a new mural in the Third Man offices. But his first order of business is his label's new Document series: Third Man teamed up with archival imprint Document Records to reissue the complete remastered works of three Depression-era musical pioneers: Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell and the Mississippi Sheiks. White spoke at length about the reissues and answered questions about recent recordings with the Dead Weather, more than 20 new solo tracks he recently recorded and why he walked offstage after less than an hour at a recent Radio City Music Hall show. "I shut up when the crowd tells me to shut up," he says. "The crowd's in complete control of me. I was just doing what they told me to do."

    Thank you for doing this, Jack. We really appreciate it.
    Sure. I like to help out up-and-coming magazines like Rolling Stone.

    I loved listening to the reissues. It's fascinating what these guys did with such primitive equipment during tough times. Why did you want to team up with Document and reissue these records?
    The first blues records that I bought myself were Document reissues. I was 17 or something. A record collector had died in Detroit, and they had brought their whole collection to this record store called Desirable Discs in Dearborn, Michigan. They had brought them all in, and each one had a number in the corner. There were a lot of interesting records in there – I was buying Roosevelt Sykes and Tommy Johnson and a lot of people I had never heard before. I was able to get maybe 20, 30 records. And when Third Man Records opened, the first thought I had was it would be so nice to put those records out on vinyl again, because they haven't been available in 20 or 30 years now.

    I don't remember when the last ones had been done, because Document and Yazoo and all the archival labels stopped pressing vinyl records, so we could definitely do the vinyl part. That format is missing from this whole world. So we talked to Document and, luckily, Gary Atkinson was up for it. So we thought, "I want to present this in a whole new way. Let's make this something that always stays in print." And it has brand-new artwork by Rob Jones, so it's very enticing, because all those blues records just had the most boring, librarian-type artwork, which made it even more disinteresting to people who were just passers-by in that realm.

    How did these records hit you compared to the people who reinterpreted the blues later on in the Sixties and Seventies?
    Well, you started to see where it was all coming from. It didn't occur to me until even a couple years ago that this is the first moment in history where a single person with a guitar spoke about himself to the entire world. This is a gigantic leap forward in music, and that moment means a lot. I think they didn't even notice they were doing it, those record labels. They were just trying to sell records and record players to people down South, and they didn't realize this moment in history – what a leap forward they were making. That's pretty amazing. The first time something happens, it's usually the best, you know? The very first moment a new invention is created, usually the first stab at it ends up being the best. So this is sort of the first time we're hearing modern music is at this moment, if you trace it back.

    Do you feel kind of a responsibility of teaching and preserving these traditions through Third Man? I know you record kids from local schools. You seem to have that educational element now.
    Yeah. When you have the set-up to do anything you want in that musical world, without need for it to make a profit, ideas come all the time to me and to everyone who works there. It doesn't mean anything to me for us to get an old 1960s Scopitone machine and take all our modern videos and have them transferred to 16mm film, and we can't find the film stock, so we have to put an optical laser reader in to read the optical sound component to the film, and all of this for something that will make us absolutely no money. I just want that to exist, you know?

    When you walk into the store and you can see something combining something beautiful that's timeless, like film, and something brand new, which is brand-new created videos for modern singles that our label puts out, and combine the two and see the mechanics of it and make something beautiful out of it . . . Or the rolling record store truck, taking the record store on wheels. Or [having] school bands come and record their own record and it get pressed in their school colors here, and they get to actually hold a song that they recorded in their hands on a record. Those are all things that don't really turn a profit in a lot of ways. They break even if we're lucky, but the point is that we just want this stuff to exist so it fuels everybody's creativity.

    What's a typical day at the office like for you?
    In the last week we took meetings with lots of different people – musicians and producers and different artists, just to go over different ideas. Someone wants to put on a festival in Nashville of different bands. We're asking if we can release their old third-party-manufactured records that are out of print that nobody has seen in decades – just like what we're doing with Document, but with different bands. We just signed Pokey LaFarge to Third Man. He signed his contract on a broken Jimmie Rodgers 78 in my office, you know? There's a lot of activity going on here.

    But the thing we're most proud of right now is the new lathe-cutting studio that we have behind our live venue stage. The crowd can look through a glass window and see the live show being cut directly to acetate, and we have cameras on the needles, and there's a TV screen in the venue so you can actually see the needles cutting right into the vinyl while you're watching the live show. We did this with the Shins, the Kills and Seasick Steve so far. We are the only venue in the world that you can record direct to acetate in front of a crowd. That's a mind-blowing process. It's very difficult, tricky and dangerous, but it's so beautiful, when it all works out the way it's planned.

    This was originally a storage space for you, right?
    Yeah. It started as just a place to store my gear. But when I first bought it – because I had had, like, 15 different storage units around, like, different bands I'm in and different projects. So I wanted to get them all in one building so I knew where everything was. When you're trying to record and someone says, "Oh, let's put a Clavinet on this song," you say, "It's over in the storage unit, and it's too much trouble to go get it. Let's just use something else." You know, I wanted to have all those instruments available to me. I could just pull them off a shelf and use them.

    When did you decide to turn this into an office and hire a staff?
    It was all baby steps. Within six months, the place had just turned into a giant conglomerate of so many different ideas. It first started with me calling Ben Swank, who was in London, and Ben Blackwell, from Detroit, to see if they would come. I asked them if they would come here and re-release all the old White Stripes seven-inches, because they had just come into my possession. They were out of print for, like, a decade. So I said, "Why don't we re-release all those records, and we'll have a little record shop up front and maybe you guys, once in a while, someone will ring the door, you can go up and sell the record to them?" Five people a week would maybe come. But quickly they can't get any work done, because people just keep coming to this record shop all day long. So the third person we hired was someone to work in the shop up front. Then I built the photo studio in the back and then a darkroom inside it and then a live venue, stage. It just all kept going and going, and now it's three buildings wide and turned into a massive operation, which is very inspiring to everybody.

    Where do you want Third Man to be in 10 years?
    Well, this year is a definitive year for us. To partner with people like Document and become a place where we can release archival music that it hasn't existed in decades – that's a big, important thing for us. That almost feels like Library of Congress-type material, in a way. In a librarian aspect, to be able to bring that stuff to life again, and not just talk about it or hear about it in only one format, digital. It's nice to be able to make that live and breathe again, you know. So that's important to us, and there's a lot of projects that I can't tell you about that are coming out this year. Really big ones for us that are super exciting that we're involved with now that will be coming out in the coming months.

    You're sure you can't tell us?
    [Laughs] I'll tell you when we can, but I don't want to jinx it.

    I discovered Blind Willie McTell when the White Stripes covered "Your Southern Can Is Mine" on De Stijl. I have always noticed similarities between your singing styles – the way you hold notes, your phrasing.
    I love Blind Willie McTell. He was a huge influence on me. His style was not suave and cool, like Robert Johnson. Robert Johnson is very mysterious and would have no trouble with women – an up-all-night, jukejoint kind of person, you know? Blind Willie McTell comes off to me as more nerdish, by himself, very interested in the intricacies of how things work and the knowledge of things around him. He can navigate himself around New York City by himself, no problem. When you hear him speak to Alan Lomax, you really can see the depth of his intelligence, and he knows exactly what he's doing. He gets asked about racial questions and he's very careful in how he words it, but he gets his point across really well – in a defiant way, in my opinion, which is beautiful. Blind Willie McTell is a very layered person, you know.

    The Mississippi Sheiks were very versatile. Their melodies are incredible, and it was all done during the Depression, when people probably couldn't really even think about recording music.
    The Mississippi Sheiks – is that the first rock & roll band? The first punk band? One of the first bands as we know it? When you rewind the tape, when you go back to that era, it gets blurry, but that's a band. It doesn't matter if they're plugged into an amp. They're singing about the same kinds of things. They're very irreverent. Blues musicians are telling the same stories that, you know, Lil Jon and Jay-Z are telling today. They're just telling it in a different style.

    Have you met rappers who listen to blues?
    I think it's subconscious, because the times I've talked to rappers, I don't know how much they know about that era. It's not just them, either. A lot of modern rock & roll musicians don't know a lot about that era, either. I talked to Pee Wee Herman one time and he said, "I wasn't that big of a fan of Charlie Chaplin." I assumed he would be. But I do think that Lil Wayne is telling very much a similar story as someone like Tommy Johnson, you know? "I asked her for water, she gave me gasoline" – that's not much different than talking about purple drank, you know?

    What do you think of acoustic bands like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers, who play acoustic music and are making a huge mark on the charts today?
    I think it's brilliant that that music is catching people's attention. It's beautiful. That's a surprise, because even at the moment – when the White Stripes came out and we were performing that type of music and we were getting to do it on television across the world, which we kind of felt was an amazing opportunity – even when the White Stripes did the Grammys, we were going to play "Seven Nation Army," but I said, "I really want to play 'Death Letter' by Son House, as long as I have the opportunity." And we did. That was a triumph for me – a Son House song was once again played for the American people. And I think these acts nowadays are keeping people's ears open to the idea of the soulfulness of folk-style music and acoustic music, and you get a little bit closer to the musician, to the writer, at times. It doesn't have to be about them. I don't think it's about authenticity at all. It's just about the idea that style can sometimes bring you in and bring you closer, like someone sitting at a piano can.

    Is it tough to balance these projects with having a family?
    No, it's not. I always thought when I was younger that when I got more and more interested in different things that there wouldn't be time for everything. And there really is time for everything. You discover that sometimes people sit and watch television for 12 hours. It's amazing what can occur in 12 hours. Sometimes five minutes with somebody that you love is comparable to a month's worth of someone you sit next to at work in a cubicle with. If it's important, it can be so much more meaningful. It's just managing your time with things that mean a lot to you. I've been lucky, because I just have a backlog of things I want to catch up to all the time. I hope that that well doesn't ever run dry for me, because I could become quite bored [laughs].

    When you guys decide the Third Man Vault releases, are you sitting at a meeting with everybody? How do you decide what it's going to be?
    Oh, we always do them all together, as a group effort. We love all the elements of really soulful things, beautiful, mechanical things. We love novelty at the same time. We love trickery. We love things that are historically important. There's so many things that revolve around this world in here. It's very compelling to have a record by Elvira and a record by Tempest Storm on the same level as Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell.

    Why aren't more artists spreading themselves out more the way you are, instead of going through the cycle of one album every three or four years with the same project and then going on tour?
    Well, I think that it's a confusing time now in music. It's confusing if you're a band. For example, you have festivals nowadays. You didn't have those 15 years ago. Festivals basically can dictate a musician's life now. You have to do them, because they put this offer on the table you can't refuse and you have to do what they say, and you basically have to plan your whole year around what these guys who plan festivals decide for you. And then that's your year. Besides that, it's so hard to sell a record nowadays that people will just do what the easiest thing is to do to kind of stay afloat, and you can't blame them for it. That's the sea that everyone's swimming in right now.

    Have you considered hosting a Third Man music festival?
    We would love to. We would love to do a traveling show sometime soon. It would be nice if everybody has some affiliation with us in some way, and see if we can all put it on the road together. It would be very nice. I'd like to see everyone playing together like that and let it be bigger. I'll walk away from having my name have to be part of the sentence when people talk about Third Man Records. I'd rather, at some point, my name not have to be attached to it in that way, you know?

    So you wouldn't play it, probably?
    Yeah, I would. That'd be fine. I'd love to do something like that. We will. We've been talking about it for a long time now. We've done different things, like having Jerry Lee Lewis play across the street from us, and we've done a lot of live shows here, too. It's a no-brainer for us to put something together that we could do in Nashville, like a day or a couple-day event, but it would be nice to actually take it on the road.

    This summer, maybe?
    [Laughs] I don't know. That would be cool, but we have a lot of projects this year that are so exciting and intricate – I wish I could tell you about them – but they're gonna be so fulfilling to us, you know?

    Death was a huge theme on Blunderbuss. Where is your head right now as a songwriter?
    It's all over the place. It's, you know, going out on the road with two bands, that was going out on the road with a gigantic new family, and my influences have just spread out even more to have, you know, a hip-hop drummer and this, you know, bluegrass fiddle player next to, you know, someone from Denmark who plays steel guitar and a soul singer like Ruby Amanfu, on and on and on. There's no genre. It all comes together and influences me in 16 different ways.

    It sounds like the experiment was a success for you.
    Yeah, it was for me. And I think everybody involved was inspired and definitely doing something they've never done before. I don't think anybody had really done that before, and it was kind of scary in a way. We didn't know if it would only work for maybe two or three weeks and we'd have to cancel it, but it worked. It's worth all the trouble, I think.

    So you'll continue to record with those bands?
    I have been. I've got about 20 to 25 tracks I'm working on right now. A lot of songs. So it's a good time for writing for me.

    That's amazing. So you might do a record this year?
    I don't know. I don't know if it'll come out this year or not. I don't know when I'll finish it, because the last one kinda came together so strangely. I was in the middle of making it and I didn't realize I was doing it, you know? I was just doing it because I needed to get these songs down, and then I realized I was making a record, and I wanted to keep that going on this one. I just want to write and bring the Buzzards and Peacocks in and work on some things, and work on the things with no intention of what it's going to be. No competition between the bands. People just keep writing and recording until I decide what it's going to be. And I haven't decided yet, so.

    Can you share what these 25 tracks are sounding like to you?
    Oh, I'll try, but it's definitely not one sound. It's definitely several. Like you heard in Blunderbuss, there's many different styles there. I don't pick my style and then write a song. I just write whatever comes out of me, and whatever style it is is what it is, and it becomes something later. Someone else can label it if they want to, but as it's being written and recorded I'm just trying to service the song as best as possible. So that's, again, what I'm still doing.

    I know in Mexico, on New Year's Eve, you spent some time with the Dead Weather. Have you been spending time with that band a lot lately?
    We all live in Nashville now. All the Raconteurs and all the Dead Weather live in Nashville now, so we often go on trips together, because we're all just good pals. We've recorded some things, too. And Brendan [Benson] and the Raconteurs just built a new studio right in town, so it's a lot of great inspiration going around.

    So you're doing Raconteurs stuff too?
    Yeah, we've always been working together, you know? We did some Raconteurs shows like a year ago. Our things pick their place for us. We don't really sit down and pick them. They pick our place for us. Like, the Kills make a record or Queens of the Stone Age makes a record, I make a record, and it all falls into place, you know? Like, we didn't know we were going to do two Dead Weather records in a row. We didn't have any plan at all. We were just going to record a seven-inch, and it keeps going, and we make two albums' worth of material. We try not to tell it what to do. We let it tell us what to do.

    2013 is a blank slate for you. You have all these things going on – do you know what your main interest is going to be yet?
    Oh, on all the things we just discussed. Definitely. There's so many things. I could work 24 hours a day at Third Man all year if I wanted to. There's so much going on. So much going on, and there's so many amazing things that are gonna come out in the next few months that I'm excited about. I just look at it like one step at a time and I don't think too far ahead. I don't have any shows booked for this year at all. It's nice to have an open road in front of me.

    So you might not tour with the Buzzards or the Peacocks?
    I don't know. I don't know. I'm not sure. It's hard to say.

    Will we ever hear the music Radiohead recorded at your studio in June?
    I hope so, yeah. I love it. I hope that's gonna come out soon. It's up to Radiohead. I don't know what – I don't know where they're at with it.

    What did you guys do?
    They produced it themselves, or Thom [Yorke] produced it or something. They just recorded it at my studio, a couple of tracks, and then went on to play at Bonnaroo the next day.

    I don't know if you want to talk about this or not, but I was at the Radio City show where you walked off. I loved the show, but people made a big deal about it. What was going through your head that night?
    Oh, I just do what the crowd tells me to do. I always do that. I always have and always will. If I play an old folks' home or a fire station, I shut up when the crowd tells me to shut up. I provoke when the crowd tells me to provoke. The crowd's in complete control of me. So that's, that's what will happen at any given night you see me.

    You just weren't feeling it?
    I was just doing what they told me to do [Laughs].
