Fans discover ultra-rare Jack White vinyl sewn into couches

It’s a story that took a decade to play out. Ten years ago, during the early days of the White Stripes, Jack White started a side project with Brian Muldoon. Calling themselves The Upholsterers, White and Muldoon decided to hide away 100 copies of their second single inside various couches Muldoon was reupholstering around Detroit in 2004. Per NME:

“Recently Third Man Records has been made aware of the discovery of two different copies found by two separate individuals of the 2nd single by the Upholsterers. This duo, comprising of actual upholsterers Jack White and Brian Muldoon, pressed 100 copies of this single and proceeded to hide them in furniture being reupholstered by Muldoon in 2004, in celebration of his 25th year in the business. In celebration of these discoveries, Third Man would like to share with everyone the cover art for this single, done by noted Detroit artist Gordon Newton.”

The whole thing teaches me two things: Your reupholstering job will last about 10 years. You gotta love White and Muldoon.
