When we first asked for Third Man’s blessing around a potential #selftitledtakeover by Wolf Eyes, the Nashville/Detroit label was pretty blunt: “If they’re cool with 4-6 photos turning into 52 photos, then yeah, sure. But self-titled should know what they’re getting themselves into.”
To which the noise icons added, “YOU KNOW WE GOT THIS. HAND IT OVER.”
They weren’t kidding; considering what happened to Third Man’s account last fall, the photo essay that follows would probably give Jack White PTSD. Maybe he should just skip ahead to the part where No Age and Ratfist man the controls, bringing our cheeky SXSW coverage to a sufficient close?
