Announcing the next Third Man London exclusive release: A limited edition, screen printed jacket version of 'The White Stripes Peel Sessions' on double vinyl. The two live recordings from 2001 with famed BBC DJ John Peel capture Jack and Meg during the international hubbub of 'White Blood Cells,' and are arguably the best document of The White Stripes at that time. Having been widely bootlegged since their initial recordings, and first officially released by Third Man in 2016, this special version and hark back to the duo's UK success couldn't be a more fitting release for our London opening. Available in-store from 25th September. ... See MoreSee Less

I must have been under a rock, there's a London store coming? Where? Are things limited to the Sat opening or expected to be available after that?

When are you guys announcing the tour?

Also in Belgium?

Love to hear more about your new store.

Nice packaging and design work as usual

Did anyone else get a moment of excitement thinking this was a concert announcement?

I really can’t believe that was 20 years ago.

So cool to get official access to great shows like this!!! Any chance of ever putting out 4/14/02 from East Lansing, MI? I know I and a lot of Michigan State alumni and friends would really love a vault package or vinyl edition of that show!!! <3 🤍 🖤

ironically they predicted the gala event!

I was at that Cleveland show, which was 🔥

Wouldn't you love to see them one more time !!

TWENTY YEARS 🤯

Juan Manjarrez q dice? no sé english

😍👿😇🔥💃💓🐎🌸🌹

Man, the music was probably great but that recording isn't. Static and distortion all over. Bummer.

The best of the world

Megan Catt subscribe to the vault package for more.

The white stripes are communists. Don’t love them.

We were there for this one! AMAZING

I was there! Amazing! They don’t make em like they used to anymore

Was at Reading 2002 & 2004… 2002 they played on the main stage during the Saturday afternoon & blew the doors off the place. Jack was on fire. He later guested during The Strokes set, playing guitar on (if my memory serves me correctly) NY City Cops

One of the best weekends of life! The white stripes were amazing 🤩

One of my favorite artists. Little Meg blows my mind with drumming skills. As for Jack. I own ALL his music. The the raconteurs. AWSOME album. It’s one of Jacks other bands. He incredible

That was the best night that weekend. Friday was hard work. White stripes just bloody awesome and supergrass in the tent on Sunday were fantastic. The mud and floods were horrendous!

went to the empress ballroom in Blackpool to watch them around this time fuckin fantastic gig

I was there, my first festival was 1980, I was 42 in 2004 and loved it!

It was incredible I went to leeds for the white stripes they were unreal just like when I saw them at the famous Blackpool gig

A blessed line up.. What else can we say? Compared to today's crap..

Strange times. The Darkness coheadlining a festival with the Stripes and some other band I’ve never heard of.

I can't remember the year, but wanted to see them at Old Trafford cricket ground for some all day event around this time, but they pulled out, and we got The Flaming Lips instead!!! Was not happy, but at least the Manics were good!

That lineup is giving me THE FEELS

Gone are the days of having line ups like that now.

My band is called Meg’s cans.

Went to Leeds that year, from what I remember Morrissey headlined on the Sunday night.

How could the Darkness headline over the Offspring

They don't have line ups like this anymore.

The Dolls and Morrissey on the same bill? Moz had to be in heaven.

I was there….great gig! 👍🏻

Where is the live WS album?

We were there at Leeds was fantastic as Mr White is always fab live x🥰

I was at Leeds, they were amazing 💜💗♥️❤️

That’s a good old line up right there

Loved every second x x x
