Singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Pat Carney are sitting side by side in a booth, scoffing cheeseburgers while appreciating the gathering of gnarly boozers at the jukebox in the corner. The story has Auerbach shaking and wheezing with laughter. Watching these two crack each other up in a scruffy roadside diner, I have to remind myself just how huge the Black Keys are these days. Now with eight albums and seven Grammys to their name, the ubiquity of their songs is such that they've probably soundtracked some part of your life even if you don't realise it.
Intickets for their Madison Square Garden show sold out in 15 minutes. That's faster than Jay Z. The pair have lived in Nashville for the last four years, a period of their lives that comprises their best of times professionally and their worst of times personally. Both 34 years old, both now divorced, their upcoming album Turn Blue is freighted with the pain and the weariness of the past few years.
As a result, it's the most sophisticated and affecting thing they've done. Reading this on mobile? Click here to view In August, while they were recording Turn Blue in LA, Auerbach finalised his divorce from Stephanie Gonis, gaining temporary custody of their six-year-old daughter.
It's been a painfully public break-up: Gonis made accusations of abuse, Auerbach claimed she made suicide attempts in front of their daughter. The press gorged on the lurid details, including a lock of Bob Dylan's hair that Gonis won in the settlement. Today, his grief and exhaustion are palpable. I do know that, subconsciously, sadness can have a huge effect on an album.
With this record, I didn't try to push it in any direction but it came out pretty…" he trails off. The word he eventually settles on is "moody", but I'd offer "melancholy", not an emotion that the Black Keys' rootsy, brawny grooves previously gave much credence to.
Auerbach was captain of the American football team, a jock, albeit a long-haired, stoner jock with a penchant for bluesman Junior Kimbrough; Carney, by contrast, was a lanky nerd who'd geek out over Television, the Stooges and the Stones. They only connected when their older brothers suggested they get together to make music. The first time they jammed in Carney's basement, they improvised a six-track demo, a copy of which found its way to LA label Alive Naturalsound, which signed them without having seen them play.
Their debut, The Big Come Up, was released in For the next few years, the Black Keys slugged it out on the toilet circuit, but even as the Strokes-fuelled garage rock revival gathered momentum, significant radio play and media attention escaped them.
It took a car commercial to jump-start their career: Their cheerful pragmatism over licensing music to adverts extends to appearing on The Colbert Report in for a "sell-out off" against Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig Colbert's adjudication: The band at the Bottle Rock Music festival last year. That was followed by 's hugely successful El Camino. After weeks of re-examining evidence presented to a commission of inquiry in the late s, Hanegbi told Israeli TV: I don't know where.
Jacob Kedmi, a former Supreme Court judge who died last month, concluded that in most cases, the children had died and been hurriedly buried. Hanegbi's admission appears to confirm allegations long made by the families - and supported by scholars and journalists - that the inquiry was little more than a whitewash by the Israeli establishment.
Kedmi placed the hundreds of thousands of documents relating to testimonies and evidence under lock for 70 years. They will not be made publicly available until This was a crime perpetrated against thousands of parents, who still don't know the truth about their children's fate. The Yemenite Babies Affair The first consequence is likely to be mounting pressure on the government to open the state's adoption files so that the true extent of the disappearances can be gauged and families reunited.
But Hanegbi's otherwise evasive comments will do little to end suspicions that officials are still actively trying to avoid confronting the most contentious questions: Why were the infants taken from their families?

Did hospitals and welfare organisations traffic children in Israel's early years? And were state bodies complicit in the mass abductions? The Yemenite Babies Affair, noted that the "forcible transfer" of children from one ethnic group to another satisfied the United Nations definition of "genocide".
The convention includes the crime of "complicity". Nakba - 'Palestinians will return to their stolen lands' The mystery has been dubbed the Yemenite Children Affair, because most of the children who disappeared were from Yemen.
But there were also significant numbers from Iraq, Morocco, Tunisia and the Balkans. Grunbaum learned of his own place in this scandalous affair inthe year before the Kedmi inquiry was launched. His wife had become suspicious that there were no photos of his birth or a birth certificate, and that he was much darker than his parents. When she phoned state childcare services, a clerk broke Israel's strict privacy laws by mistakenly revealing to her that Grunbaum had indeed been adopted.
The couple was then hastily called to a meeting at the Tel Aviv office, where they were briefly allowed to view two pages from his file.

No details of his biological family were provided. I stared at the TV all day long for four months, running my life through my head, looking for the clues I should have seen. I resigned from my job. I couldn't concentrate on anything else.
I asked her if I was right - I didn't need a reply," Grunbaum said, noting the colour drained from the woman's face as she realised he had found his biological family. Grunbaum's biological father had died a few years earlier, but he met his biological mother in a supervised visit in Haifa. It had taken her a month to recover sufficiently from hearing the news that her son was alive to agree to a meeting.
I gave her an album of photos of my three children. She said with surprise, 'I have a blond grandson! They were elderly and in poor health. I think it would have destroyed them to realise I knew the truth. Grunbaum admits he was filled with confusion and anger at his parents for a long time.
Shortly after he found out about the circumstances of his adoption, his parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I was too frightened of what might come out of my mouth," he said. Pressure on the Israeli government to provide answers in cases like Grunbaum's has intensified in recent years, as social media has helped the affected families to understand how widespread the disappearances were. In late June, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded by announcing a fresh examination of the evidence.
In a video posted to his Facebook page, he promised to get to the bottom of the affair: Jews kidnapped other Jews, Jews who were coming to a state that had been created as a refuge in the immediate wake of the Holocaust.

Even among those few, said Madmoni-Gerber, most are reluctant to go public, fearing that the truth will tear apart their families, who may have conspired in their abduction. Israeli Jews who originate from Arab countries are known in Israel as Mizrahim, in contrast to those of European heritage, who are called Ashkenazim.
Tzadok said the evidence suggested that most of the missing children - from Mizrahi families - were taken by hospital staff and sold or given away to European Jews, both in Israel and abroad.
Israel's Great Divide Tzadok, who is active with Achim Vekayamim, a forum for the families of missing children, said deep prejudices among European Jews against the Mizrahim - and especially the Yemenites - had made the kidnappings possible. The dominant view then was that, by placing the children with Ashkenazi families, they could be saved - unlike their parents. They thought it was their patriotic duty. Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, described the Mizrahim as "rabble" and a "generation of the desert", concluding that they lacked "a trace of Jewish or human education".
In the early s, he warned: It is incumbent upon us to struggle against the spirit of the Levant, which corrupts individuals and societies. The establishment's open disdain for the Mizrahim eventually led to political backlash, noted Pappe. In the late s, after decades in opposition, the right-wing Likud party won power from Ben Gurion's Labour party. Today, Likud is led by Netanyahu. Grunbaum said Israel's European elite were also sympathetic to the plight of Holocaust survivors, like his adoptive parents, who had lost most or all of their family and struggled to have children of their own.
The nurse said, 'You have lots of children, why not let us take one of them? A couple of days later, the nurse told her her baby girl had died. She did not receive a death certificate and was not shown a grave. Shlomi Hatuka, who helped found Amram, an organisation campaigning on behalf of the families "My father had been in Auschwitz and my mother in Dachau.
The survivors suffered from psychological and physical traumas that meant it was difficult or impossible for them to have children," he said. Sonia Milshtein, a former senior nurse, testified that Yemenite parents "were not interested in their children" and that they should have been happy that their "child got a good education".
Sarah Pearl, head nurse at the Women's International Zionist Organisation WIZOa charity that ran care homes from which children are alleged to have disappeared, told Israeli media that when she asked why the children's parents never visited, she was told by the head administrator that they "have lots of kids, and lots of problems, so they don't want their children".
Like many of those who have been campaigning for greater transparency, Madmoni-Gerber, an Israeli professor of communications now based in the United States, said her own family had been scarred by the Yemenite Children Affair. Like many other Mizrahim, they were temporarily sheltered in one of dozens of "absorption camps" across Israel. Madmoni-Gerber's aunt gave birth in an Israeli hospital in When she arrived back at the camp, the child was snatched [by staff] out of her hands.
She never saw her baby again. For instance, Yaron London, one of Israel's best-known commentators, has called suggestions of kidnappings a " conspiracy theory ". The child soldiers of Yemen Shlomi Hatuka, a year-old Yemenite poet and teacher who three years ago helped found Amram, an organisation campaigning on behalf of the families, said that continuing racism towards the Mizrahim had made possible a "conspiracy of silence" lasting more than six decades.
His activism began after his grandmother revealed to him 22 years ago that she had been asked by a nurse in the early s to give up for adoption one of the twins she had just given birth to. At the time, none of us could really grasp what had happened to [the baby]. It was just too strange.
