DOWNLOAD - The Upholsterers (early Jack White band) - Makers of High Grade Suites EP

Last night Jack White's Roseland Ballroom performance was streamed on Sirius/XM radio, and while I don't have it yet, this is pretty cool. Anyone that has been visiting The Steam Engine for a while knows that I am an AVID supporter of all things Jack White: The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and while I've shared 41 various Jack White recordings over the years (check out The Treasury), this is something I've never put out there. I'm really not sure why, but, I was so pumped after last nights performance I just had to get something tasty out there.

The Upholsterers were two piece consisting of Jack White on guitar and vocals and Brian Muldoon on drums that existed in the year 2000. Muldoon owned the upholstery shop that Jack worked at and was an early musical and professional mentor. This is before The White Stripes were The White Stripes, really before Jack White was Jack White.

The EP is not for sale anywhere, that is why I feel comfortable sharing it. Apparently only 1000 of these were printed and Jack and Brian supposedly stapled some copies on the inside of the very furniture they were upholstering. So, if you're hardcore enough it may be time to hit those St. Vincent DePaul stores in the Detroit area for used furniture.
