    "liked" haha. I'm sure you stopped listening to them.

    Do you own any of their early 7"? Probably not coming from a guy who wants to go see the Black Keys in 2014!

    Why would I own any of their early 7"? I'm a casual fan at best and when I saw the White Stripes in 2003 it was a sloppy mess. You have no idea what you're talking about regarding anything.

    So you never seen their artwork from 7" yet you made those comments? Casual fan talking out of their ass....please tell us how the show was a sloppy mess. I'm sure you remember the exact details from the show you saw over 10 years ago How old were you in 2003? 14?

    Spooks is right on two things:

    1. If you don't own a vinyl, there's absolutely no way you've ever seen what it looks like.

    2. Having been 14 in 2003 is an embarrassment of riches.

    How the fuck is this a response to somebody that called you an idiot for proclaiming that the new Black Keys album cover for no reason reminded you of a White Strips album cover?

    Personally, I thought the new Black Keys album cover was ripping off the Black Angels album covers. Specifically "Directions to See a Ghost" and "Phosphene Dream". Maybe it's just the eye searing colour combo and spiral design
