Either band might be interesting.
Fat Possum Records is also where we first became aware of the Black Keys but they are more blues than rock. All this was around ten years ago, so I don't know what you are familiar with today.
We sometimes pick up Mojo and/or Uncut magazines. Their "free CD's" seem to be either very bad or at times have some interesting bands.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'm listening to Only For You, by The Heartless Bastards right now. Good stuff.
I've got a load of Mojo cover discs(I bought that magazine from issue 1 though to 2008. Like you say, very hit and miss).
This song is great, though:
Big Heartless Bastards fan since I got James McMurtry's Live in Texas Aught Three about 15 years ago. Got to see them supporting Drive By Truckers on their last UK tour
