The Immortal Lee County Killers



Promised a pal I'd upload these bad boys, and maybe any who haven't heard of them yet'll get an ear-full.
What follows are two of the most uncompromising re-imaginings of Robert Johnson-styled delta blues. Led Zeppelin fused rock with blues, these guys fused punk. Their third album is much less confrontational as these two, but is still worth a listen if you don't mind the ballad-y, more introspective side of raw music.
The music can sound kind of flat sometimes due to the production, but in some ways it works out in the Killers' favor. Just check 'em out...

The Essential Fucked Up Blues!

Love is a Charm of Powerful Trouble (My favorite of the two)
