Death From Above 1979 released a live album today, recorded directly to acetate at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee last July. The band says this epic live session was followed by a late-night bowling adventure with Jack White and Mick Jagger that lasted until 3am:
We’ve always been wary of live recording experiences because they can end up so sterile and flat sounding and they hardly ever translate the feeling of the actual show. The feeling of the moment. When we were asked to record Live At Third Man Records we agreed without hesitation. If there is one person who knows about feeling the moment, it’s Jack White. He’s the patron saint of vibes. We cut two twenty minute long sets straight to acetate. No second chances. Terrifying but alive. Third Man were such phenomenal hosts and the audience went bananas with us. It was such an honour to be a part of. The whole thing was such a rush, it almost feels like a dream.
Oh yeah, Mick Jagger was there. Did we mention that we went out to dinner with Jack and Mick after and then went bowling until 3am? It’s also worth noting that Jack got the highest score followed by Sebastien. Mick and Jesse tied.
