During the White Stripes era, Jack White teamed up with musician friend Brian Muldoon to form The Upholsterers. As both musicians were previously upholsterers by craft, they took their single “Your Furniture Was Always Dead … I Was Just Afraid To Tell You” and hid 100 copies of it in reupholstered furniture throughout Detroit. The first two copies of the original batch have recently been found by two separate people, who then contacted White's label Third Man Records. You can read a statement from the label and view the single's details below.
“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.”
