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.
