Interesting factoid: They named the band from inspiration of a schizophrenic artist friend in Akron, who used the term “black keys” to describe things he disliked or people he did not trust. (source: mokb)

Not so interesting but more useful factiod: The last track comes from the EP of Junior Kimbrough covers entitled “Chulahoma“. Chulahoma was their final release for Fat Possum Records.
