The Black Knights – “L.A. Hayfever”

The Black Knights “L.A. Hayfever”

I’m very smitten with this trashy, bluesy duo from Salford, England calling themselves The Black Knights. I was hooked with their ‘Parade of Pirahanas’ EP a while back, and am digging their debut LP “Sickle Cell Saturday Night” out now. If you like the stripped down dirty rock vibe of bands like the Band of Skulls, you’ll like these guys too. They’re super sweet guys to boot. Thought I’m sure the lead vocalist, who calls himself The Dark Reverend, may not take too kindly to how that comment might affect his badass image. But as they say, never judge a book by it’s cover.

This track, L.A. Hayfever rocks. Though the song is not about seasonal allergies. It’s a code word for the after effects of doing too much blow and constantly rubbing your nose, thinking there are still traces of it there.  So L.A.
