And G's got me listening to them too, i watched this the other week G, 2010 Glastonbury John Peel stage.
Refreshing to see a modern band that dont feel the need to dress like ladyboys and have scene kid haircuts, and they play like they mean it, thats a bit of a rarity these days isnt it. Ive noticed the scene kids on this forum tend not to mention the Black Keys, always the sign of a good band.
Black Keys are great in my books. Some people get upset when their secret underground good band get some mainstream exposure. I was into the Black Keys before they had the exposure that they do now, but I think its great that they're getting some recognition.
I was arguing with a buddy just last week about it. He said that the Black Keys used to be good before they got air play. I replied by saying that they still sounded the same to me. Liked 'em before, like 'em now. Same bluesy duo they've always been. I play them at least once a week at the sushi bar I work at.

Here is a little old school Rhythm & Blues for ya! Joe Lewis has that Lightnin` Hopkins gift for story tellin` with a James Brown delivery! I heard one song and I bought both of his albums with no regrets!
^Got myself some Seasick Steve. Its pretty grimey, in a good way. Thanks for that. The Black Joe Lewis was good instrumentally, but I just can't get over my opinion that Black Joe Lewis himself sounds like Eddie Murphy trying to sound like James Brown......
