ULTIMATE PAINTING TAKES UNRELEASED LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS LP ON THE ROAD
NEW SPRING TOUR DATES WITH WOODS
London’s Ultimate Painting is hitting the highway in the US of A and taking their not-yet-released Live at Third Man Records full-length LP with them. This means, this formidable addition to the Third Man Live series will be available EARLY and RIGHT ON TIME for concert-goers. The band’s forthcoming spring tour with Woods begins April 23 in Chicago. The same tour, incidentally, passes right through Nashville and Third Man’s own Blue Room. What luck!
The official proper global release date for the LP is set for May 27, 2016. If you want the record early, hit one of the shows listed below and be the hero of show and tell.
This LP is oozing with seriously SUPREME CUTS from both Ultimate Painting and Green Lanes (both released via Trouble in Mind). In some cases (like “Ten Street” and “Ultimate Painting”) slick old favorites are stretched to their limits. It stands as a first-rate document of live rock ‘n’ roll that hits you like cold rain plus hot toddy. All the while taking special care not to bury lyric and beautiful harmonies under a security blanket of guitar squall and pointless effects. Straight to the point and totally balanced! That’s a guarantee and a perfect prescription.
Don’t believe TMR? Have a listen…
May 27 also means the release of The Paperhead’s Live at Third Man Records 7”, recorded on the same fateful night as Ultimate Painting! The record includes the obvious, future-classic “Africa” from their highly mesmerizing Africa Avenue (TiM) and an as-yet-unreleased track “Little Kid Blues” showcasing the band at their heaviest and most dynamic–shout out to that Farfisa swagger and them excellent drums. A fantastic listen through and through and a perfect compliment to the LP. Put 5/27 in your calendar as a “Day of Good Music,” especially if you don’t see your coordinates on the list below.
