Black keys -similar bands to them???
Missippi Allstars. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, particularly the album they did with R.L Burnside. Black Crowes, more so the second and third albums as they have gotten a bit more laidback recently. White Stripes. Delta Spirit. Brendon Benson. Soledad Brothers. Little Barrie. 22-20s. You may not like any of them of course but that’s what’s great about music.Posted 5 years agocharlie the bikemongerSubscriber

Thanks stevenmenmuir… That will be my music list for next week in the shop
Saw the black keys at the fire station, whilst I was planning on using “have love will travel” for a TV advert… Awesome gig.Posted 5 years agoTriconeMember
This is easy. Junior Kimbrough as he is the template for all early Keys stuff. The Black Keys even did a whole album just dedicated to covers of his music. Dan has said many times that Kimbrough was his main inspiration.

Any Mississippi Hill Country Blues – RL Burnside, T Model Ford….etc.frosty87Member
As mentioned above –
North Mississippi Allstars
The Dirtbombs (especially the album – We have you surrounded)
And not like the Black Keys but if you like modern blues rock check out Bob Log III, especially the boob scotch album, it’s a classic.Posted 5 years agoseadragonMember
I like those kind of bands but some other bands I classify along those from a few years ago (ie, good singing voices, good lyrics etc, ie A PROPER BAND.
For me these include:
Hootie and the Blowfish
The Gin Blossoms
Black Crows (as mentioned in an earlier post).
I know many more but my mind is blank at the moment.Posted 5 years agostevenmenmuirSubscriber
Your welcome Charlie, bung me an extra sticker next time I order something. A couple more to add to the list, She Keeps Bees are a brilliant two piece, check the heck out of Counter Charm. A band I discovered today are The Delta Saints.Posted 5 years ago
Nobeerinthefridge, I hope you were drunk when you recommended the young tories. Seadragon, bang on. Looking forward to seeing the Crowes later this month.lexMember
+1 left lane cruiser. (Imagine the black keys really drunk)
Dunno if you like hip hop but they done a record called black roc with some rappers. V good.
On a more southern country blues rock thing try The Brought Low. If you like the black crows, you’ll like them.
Good thread. Lots of new stuff I need to hear. Love me some spotify premium.Posted 5 years agocharlie the bikemongerSubscriber
I went to see the band of skulls in Southampton with cross riding Dr Pete, they were good. The support I thought were great, but I can’t find out anything about them because they were called “folk”. Try googling for folk music, or folk band… You can’t bloody find them but will find millions of sites relating to folk music.
School boy branding error.
It’s like calling a bike brand “mountain”.Posted 5 years ago
