Single: Upholsterers Hidden EPs

Post by anonymousbrunette » Mon Oct 19, 2009 4:30 pm

Jack White confirms the existence of hidden Upholsterer EPs during a lecture to the Philosophical Society at Dublin's Trinity College. From the NME story:

"In an unexpected twist, the guitarist also revealed the existence of a hidden run of EPs, made with his former band The Upholsterers, back when White used to work in an upholstery shop in Detroit. The records were recorded on clear vinyl, encased in a transparent covering and hidden in 100 pieces of furniture that he upholstered. "They could be records that will never be found, ever," he teased the student audience."

WTB: Any piece of vintage 90's furnature from the Detroit area. Must be unopened and ready to be explored for hidden goodies...
Paying top dollar...

Don't think it is an album. Single.
I got that deep into variants once before with a collection, please shoot me if I go there again, it will drive you crazy I promise...
But nice stuff for sure.

Could it be that Grimtail is actually Lisagirl pretending to be a newbie?

it's a 7" single. labelless but pressed by CASS. The Upholsterers singles were released AFTER the White Stripes had done a couple of albums. I think that this single was done in... 2004 or something? I have no reason to question the authenticity of it..

Ok, so you know my secret. Shhh.
I've been hiding out in Detroit going through chair bottoms in search of the mystical Upholsterers clear vinyls....
I'm about to call it quits and say they don't exist.

But were Brian/Jack still upholstering at that time?

I think Brian was, Jack wasn't. It was Brian's company's 25 year anniversary..

everything Ian said is spot on, the record features a cover of shaking all over by Johnny Kidd and the Pirates and another track called Prisoner in Cell Block H or Cell Block Boogie or something to that effect, no track-listing obviously. Brian Muldoon discussed this with me during a telephone interview I conducted with him for a college assignment a few years back.

and Brian is still upholstering this very day. the man has kids, wife and a home to support.
I wish I was purple, because I'm feeling blue. I'm not looking for love, but a good fuck'll do.
