%The Black a two-piece band with Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney as the members, were formed in 2001. They were in their early twenties when their debut album, "The Big Come Up", was issued in 2002. They played raw blues-rock music with funk, soul and rock influences from the likes of Jimi Hendrix and James Brown that avoided undue repetition of the overdone chord progressions and stock riffs common to so many such acts. Before the year's end, the band inked a deal with Fat Possum Records.
