Hidden Jack White records found

Two records by Jack White which he had hidden inside pieces of furniture have been discovered.

Before finding fame with The White Stripes the rocker worked as an upholsterer with his friend Brian Muldoon, with whom he formed a short-lived band called The Upholsterers and recorded two singles.

Legend had it that they hid 100 vinyl copies of their second single Your Furniture Was Always Dead ... I Was Just Afraid To Tell You stitched into the upholstery of furniture worked on by Brian,

Now Third Man Records have revealed that two separate individuals have reported finding the hidden music.

A statement on the record label's site said: "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."
