After getting the excellent beach boys smile session and the new black keys album for Christmas here’s a couple of gems from each band.
Brian wilson is a complete genius anybody who thinks the beach boys are just surfing safari needs to check out these 2 tracks
The black keys are one of the few bands who have grown steadily and slowly over the past 7/8 years. Ive included photos i took of them back in 2003 when performing to around 200-300 people when they play manchester next month they have two shows to 2000-3000 people a night.
The way they brought in danger mouse to produce attack & release (that and thickfreakness are still the best albums) was a great step forward in developing thier sound but as you can hear from the latest single they have stayed pretty close to thier roots as well.
PS. There’s just 2 days left to get your FREE download of Xmas Time (again) from http://www.hey-bulldog.com
