Oh, but that video is so very worth it-- Both of Jack's songs, his intro of Steve, and then Steve's performance, which is a total gem. It's gonna be fun as hell learning more about this guy and getting into his music.

THIRD MAN RECORDS SIGNS SEASICK STEVE TO ONE ALBUM NORTH AMERICAN DEALTwo-Song Third Man Blue Series Single To Be Released Soon

Third Man Records proudly announce the signing of a one album North American record deal with Oakland-born, Memphis-reared UK sensation Seasick Steve.
Born Steven Gene Wold in 1941, and having previously made his way variously as farmhand, carnie, cowboy and hobo, Seasick Steve's unique arsenal of instruments includes the Three-String Trance Wonder (a custom-tuned three-string guitar with a Harmony pickup attached by duct tape that he's described occasionally as the "Biggest piece of shit in the world"), the One-Stringed Diddley Bow (don't ask) and the MDM or Mississippi Drum Machine (a wooden box stomped on to provide percussion).

Seasick Steve has risen to national prominence in the UK, where his albums including I Started Out With Nothing And I Still Got Most Of It Left and Man From Another Time have charted in the Top 10 and his sold out tours have featured headline gigs at such prestigious venues as the Royal Albert Hall, the Manchester Apollo, the Grand Opera House in Belfast, and appearances at the Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury festivals.

Seasick Steve's forthcoming album will be released later this year in North America via Third Man Records and will be preceded by a two-song single for the label's Blue Series. The agreement came about when Steve presumptuously signed his name on a table in Jack White’s office to act as his contract. As a man with deep reverence for furniture, Jack White had no choice but to oblige.

He will also be playing a small run of U.S. gigs prior to the album's release, including March 17 at the Belmont lounge in Austin TX, March 31 at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland OR, April 4 at Slim's in San Francisco, April 5 at the Blank Club in San Jose, and April 7 at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles.

Maybe they'll smash the table up. That'd be a cool vault vid

What does this North American record deal mean to the rest of us? Are we out of luck? :ph34r: This was the one record I've been hoping for TMR to release and would probably kill for it... :(

I'm sure it'll see a euro release because he is so popular here. Plus you'll be able to buy the vinyl straight from tmr site.

Well I assume he'll play a record release party somewhere in Nashville but they haven't announced a TMR date yet so maybe maybe not - I fucking hope so. His live shows are killer, a TMR Live Album in addition to the new one that, er TMR, is putting out :P would be a killer for me
