The Big Come Up is the debut album by the American blues-rock duo The Black Keys, released in 2002 on Alive Records. The song "I'll Be Your Man" is used as the theme song for the HBO series Hung starring Thomas Jane.
The album was very successful for a new independent rock band. Along with their second album, it was recorded entirely in drummer Patrick Carney's basement on an 8-track tape recorder from the early 1980s. The album spawned two singles released as an extended play, "Leavin' Trunk" and "She Said, She Said". Both are cover songs; "Leavin' Trunk" is a traditional blues standard and "She Said, She Said" is originally by The Beatles. "I'll Be Your Man" would later be used as the theme for the HBO series Hung. "Breaks" was featured in the 2008 film RocknRolla.
Thickfreakness is the second album by American blues-rock duo The Black Keys, released in 2003. It is their debut release for the Fat Possum record label.
The band's debut album, The Big Come Up had been tremendously successful for an independent rock band and Thickfreakness further increased their profile. It continues The Black Keys' tradition of raw, heavy blues-influenced garage rock. Thickfreakness is known in Japan as Inazuma Rockin' Blues, with "inazuma" meaning "flash of lightning".
Songs such as "Set You Free" won the pair some mainstream success as being featured in the soundtrack of the 2003 movie, School of Rock. Heavy comparisons to another American blues-influenced garage rock duo, The White Stripes, were often made in the music media.
Rubber Factory is the third album by American blues-rock duo, The Black Keys. It continues the Black Keys' tradition of raw, heavily blues-influenced indie rock. Rubber Factory was recorded in an abandoned warehouse in the Black Key's hometown of Akron, Ohio; and like Thickfreakness, was recorded and produced by Patrick Carney.
The song "When the Lights Go Out" was used in the trailers for the film Black Snake Moan. Additionally, the song "10 A.M. Automatic" was featured in an American Express commercial, in the movie Live Free or Die, in the soundtrack for MLB '06: The Show and in the movie The Go-Getter, this motion picture also features "Keep Me". Their version of "Grown So Ugly" can be heard during the party scene in the movie Cloverfield. "Girl Is on My Mind" was used on a commercial for Sony Ericsson mobile phones, as well as a Victoria's Secret Commercial. "Stack Shot Billy" was performed on Late Show with David Letterman.
Carney stated the factory had been removed in 2010. The factory was located on the west side of Route 8's Howe road exit ramp.
