I am going to try once more to persuade you of the genius of Greg Dulli. When I have posted anything before by either the Afghan Whigs or The Twilight Singers there has been a distinct lack of interest. Apart from Tommy Bolin they have been the least downloaded tracks, christ, Bonnie Tyler was downloaded more, for fuck’s sake!
Anyway, this track comes from the final release on Sub Pop by The Afghan Whigs, Uptown Avondale which was an ep of covers apart from the tune posted which was rather perversely a remix of a track which would not be released until the follow year and then as a “secret” track, Miles Iz Dead tagged onto the end of the 1993 lp Gentlemen.
The track shows that Dulli had been listening to what has been going on over the previous few years on this side of the pond, as included in the heady brew of alternative rock, 70’s funk and Motown which are prevalent in all of Dulli’s music he has also added a bit of indie dance to the mix.
Therefore, please listen without prejudice (the only time a George Michael reference will ever be made on this blog) and give it a go,
It’s good, trust me!
