The AFGHAN WHIGS channel their inner High Plains Drifter with maybe a hint of Christine in the video for a track called “ALGIERS.”
BETTER CALL SAUL:
"The Afghan Whigs’ first album in 16 years is coming soon." says Bob Odenkirk. More at Slicing Up Eyeballs.
Reblogging because I am so amped up to finally see THE AFGHAN WHIGS this evening. And again tomorrow evening. #HotDamn
“There’s a get-down factor in D.C. that’s kind of unique to the area, so—sort of like, Detroit-ish in its rock ‘n’ roll.”
I’ll be waiting for you, on…
You can hear the song the site above describes here.
IT IS ON.
May 18, 2012 - Beginning at Noon today, The Afghan Whigs will make the song “See And Don’t See” available as a free download at: www.theafghanwhigs.com and Facebook. Originally recorded in 1970 by Marie “Queenie” Lyons, the band’s version of “See And Don’t See” is the first new recording in over five years from the recently reunited group.
Happy Birthday, Greg Dulli…
Sending this video out to Greg today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV3VjF64ga4
The Twilight Singers posted this on their Facebook page - Rare recording with Greg on vocals singing My Curse, which you likely know from the scorching vocals by Marcy Mays on the Gentlemen LP.
This is on one of the 2 “What Jail is Like” EPs, and it’s very interesting to hear Dulli’s take on it.
one of my favorite songs, one of my favorite groups and you get a cookie if you knew that this was in She’s All That. It makes me want to do a bunch of drugs and stay all night out and about with my boo.

How Greg and Rick of the Afghan Whigs met…
Presumably that’s how they know What Jail Is Like.
THE AFGHAN WHIGS ARE REHEARSING.

to which I say: HOT DAMN.
and also: FULL TOUR, please?
Dear Afghan Whigs,
First and foremost I just wanna say how awesome it is you guys are reuniting to play ATP. But do yourselves, me and everyone else a huge favor by taking this single performance and making a full blown reunion out of it. While I greatly appreciated you guys getting back together to kick out two new jams for Unbreakable a few years ago, you know it as well as I do that your breed of Saturday night indie rock soul is just too damn good only to be revisited for a single show. You owe it to the rest of the world to play all those poetically twisted tales of heartache again - and keeping with the ATP vibe/theme, may I suggest playing Gentlemen in it’s entirety, as well as jamming on a bunch of your other rad songs (Summer’s Kiss, Let Me Lie To You, You My Flower, Crazy, Retarded). It’s been 13 years and the world is your oyster all the more now than ever, and it’s never been a more fitting/better time for your band to take the musical victory lap it always deserved.
