The Common Theme – BLACK – Monday the 30th of June

I saw The Black Keys play at The Civic last Thursday, and my goodness they were good!

Dan Auerbach – the lead singer – had an incredible ( & sexy ) voice, although his beard was a teeny bit Charles Manson-esque, which was somewhat concerning. Brilliant brilliant gig!!

SO I thought it only appropriate to do a Common Theme surrounding the colour black. Also there is a good amount of fodder out there, so I think I can touch on most genres here!


The Black Keys – Girl Is On My Mind

Blackaclicious – Alphabet Aerobics

The Black Seeds – Turn It Around

Black Grass – Oh Jah

Black Market Art – I Want to Die

A teensy wee snippet of Michael Jackson – Black or White !

Muse – Supermassive Black Hole

The White Stripes – Black Math

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Weight of the World

Thom Yorke – Black Swan

The Black Angels – Black Grease

The Black Keys – Strange Times

Arcade Fire – Black Mirror

I do hope I pleased some of you out there, any ideas for themes are welcomed with open arms!!




Some things you do for money, some things you do for love


 great musician once said that if you don’t come off stage bleeding, you haven’t played hard enough. Not everything said in a 3am brutal mist is correct, but it makes good photos. I can’t imagine iron and wine bleeding for the cause.

Makes a tele look so much hipper...
