Aussie Granny Covers The Black Keys on Spoons
In support of her Rockin’ Spoons Numbers Series, Deb ‘Spoons’ Perry has taken a liking to that little American band people are calling The Black Keys. And she took a song from their 2011 album El Camino to re-imagine with… spoons?
What exactly is a Rockin’ Spoons Series? It’s where sixty-plus-year-old Deb, mother of three and grandmother of two, creates a routine/cover performance of one of the most familiar tunes circulating the globe with inventive spoon play.
The Gold Coast Bulletin Spoon & Harmonica 2003 World Titles (this is real) said of Deb, “She played with such dexterity the crowd were on their feet roaring for more,” Luna Magazine reports.
With The Black Keys heading to Australia for a couple of gigs in the fall, perhaps Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney will reach out to Deb while down under. After all, that stage looks awfully lonely with those two boys up there all by themselves.
