The Black Keys at Brixton Academy were nothing short of a capital WOW. It’s hard to believe there are only two of them considering the size of the sound they make.
The drummer, Patrick Carney negates the lack of a bassist with reverb that creates a megatron bass drum, and the lead guitar amps are plugged into more amps for max-amp. Dan Auerbach (gtr/vox) is a gravel voiced legend on a gold top Gibson Les Paul guitar.
They are so immense it hurts, but unfortunately aren't playing in the UK again for aaages. In the meantime buy the album Attack & Release, give your ears the love they deserve, tell all your friends and have a sing along. The world is a better place with The Black Keys in it.
