AFGHAN WHIGS

Post by Shiney on Tue May 19, 2009 5:27 pm



This is truly one of the greatest American bands of the last 30 years, yet only maybe 2 out of every 7 people you'll ask will even recognize the name.

They came from Seattle...or near there and their debut droppe around 1991...they were wrongly lumped in with the flannel clad combat boot stompin' grunge bands, but these guys were more than that.

Dark soul...crooning devils...spitting spiraling tales of self loathing, suicidal love and Dulli's venom and cigarettes voice wrapped it all up with a black wriggling bow. A gift of edgy careening guitars, psychotic rhythm and those fucking lyrics...

Goddamn...Do I ever steer you cats wrong!?!?!

Yeah, I know them but never heard anything I liked. Of course, I heard them back when I was a bit more close-minded, so who knows. That video clip above bored me, though. It was like Mazzy Star on blah. Laughing

Man... I need to go back to bed. Sleep

The lyrics were cool, though.
