Smoke Notes

On the back of two superb albums ('Thickfreakness' and 'The Big Come Up') this duo from Ohio known as the Black Keys deserve to be huge. Taking the blueprint of the likes of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the White Stripes, this duo lay down some of the funkiest raucous and authentic blues currently known to man - and do so with genuine pride and style. Maybe it's that the traditional blues market is afraid of a white duo dripping in punk spirit ? (it had the same problem initially with fellow Fat Possum act - the late RL Burnside) Maybe rock audience's don't understand the simple vitality of primal blues ? Or maybe it's just people don't understand the concept of a two piece band ? (you would have thought the White Stripes would have got people around that one by now - however I heard recently a commercial radio DJ bleating about "how can you call two people a band" - dumb f**k!). Anyway enough is enough - this is album number three from the Black Keys, it is called 'Rubber Factory', and it is quite simply the best blues album you will hear in 2004 (certainly so far anyway). So if you evenly vaguely like electric blues, or the legions of garage outfits currently on show, or just like a good honest shitkicking rock album - do yourself a favour and check these guys out. I love them (and so does my dad!). Highly recommended.
