I have been a Black Keys fan since Thickfreakness. I first learned about the band from a Mississippi Blues documentary I caught back in 2002 or 2003 on IFC channel. Their raw, blues inspired sound was so different than anything else at the time. Fortunately, I also did some business travel back then and spent a lot of time in vinyl record shops with a co-worker, John. One trip to Los Angeles was spent at Amoeba Music where I bought this early Black Keys 7″ Leavin’ Trunk” that was #237 of 1000 from a small record label on clear vinyl.
In normal Oscar & Theo fashion, Oscar followed my suggestion to dance like the guy in the video. Theo dances to whatever beat is in his head. Anyway, here is the result…at least the last 47 seconds of it I decided to share.
