    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.

    I've wanted to check out this band for a while now. They are being hyped like crazy, so I guess it should be pretty good.

    Who are the scene kids on the forum?

    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.

    He's a real story teller isn't he. For me, he coulda done the whole album with guitar, banjo, and fiddle like the opening cut. That was lovely.

    Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears



    Black Joe Lewis

    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......
