The Kills - Live At Third Man Records [VINYL]


Out of stock

Quick Overview


This record captures a show we had been wanting to see at Third Man since day Numero Uno. Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are two of the most talented and creative people we know and we couldn't be more pleased that they rocked our stage and committed it to wax so we can finally have a release on the label by the one and only KILLS. These 8 songs were recorded direct-to-acetate on October 10, 2012. 

Third Man are so pleased that the day has come that they can announce the release of these very special live records — The Shins, and The Kills — all recorded in the Third Man Blue Room last October, and our first releases recorded live using our one-of-a-kind direct-to-acetate recording process. Without overdubs or editing, these three records were mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console by Grammy Award winning engineer Vance Powell, and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati’s legendary King Records (the story goes that James Brown's It's A Man's World was cut on this lathe among many more great sides...) Third Man's BLUE ROOM is the ONLY LIVE VENUE IN THE WORLD where artists can record their performance direct-to-acetate, and after these first releases, there will be many more of their kind coming down the pipeline.
