“The Black Keys is an American rock back formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The group began as an independent act founded after the duo dropped out of college, and they eventually emerged among a second wave of popular garage rock revival artists from the 2000s. After signing with indie label Alive, the group released its debut album, The Big Come Up (2002), which was recorded in Carney’s basement. The record forged the group’s raw blues rock sound and earned them a new deal with Fat Possum Records. Over the next decade, The Black Keys built an underground fanbase through near-constant touring of small clubs, frequent album releases and music festival appearances, and extensive licensing of their songs. The third album, Rubber Factory (2004), received critical acclaim and boosted the band’s profile, eventually leadng to a record deal with major label Nonesuch Records (2008) in a professional studio and hired producer, Danger Mouse, a frequent collaborator with the band. The group’s commerical breakthrough came in 2010 with Brothers, which along with its popular single “Tighen Up”, won three Grammy Awards. Their 2011 follow-up El Camino received strong reviews and peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 charts, leading to their first arena concert tour of the band’s career.” (Discotech, 2019)

The Black Keys are NOT fans of our beloved Satyricon 💔. A lot of legendary moments went down at Portland's greatest and most mythologized punk club. It's where Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love supposedly first met, and had a wrestling match on the floor. It's where Foo Fighters made their formal live debut. It's where Portland icons from the Wipers to Dead Moon to Poison Idea to the Dandy Warhols built their legacies.
But for theblackkeys, it was another beer-stained shit-hole venue where unknown artists come to pay their dues to the road. Patrick Carney reminisces that they played to a single drunk couple, watched a drug deal go awry, and “It smelled like puke.” Hear more about what he has to say in the link in bio ↖️

Had a blast working on the Sad Planets LP for John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, DoS, Sweet Apple) and Patrick Carney (The Black Keys). 1st single “Not of this World” (which I played bass on in addition to recording John’s vocals and additional engineering) out now! https://apple.news/ApTD8O1-AThSrIQMaD6UOeg
