i have 'gentleman', which is ace. but what's the next ace thing?
but you should probably work forwards. Next was Black Love. flawed by still genius. after that 1965, more soully, great in places (amazing first 4 songs) but tapers off quality wise towards end.
if you can find it, the What Jail Is Like EP is definitely worth buying.
after those, work back to Congregation (more metally, absolutely ace), Up In It (yet more metal, very mudhoney) and if you still want more, you can download their out of print indie debut Big Top Halloween, which is fun but very immature.
after that, greg dulli's twilight singers. but i'll leave you with the whigs for now.
is the BEST album...
cos after john the baptist its just dulli by numbers.
I think Gentlemen is by far their best record, then black love is good in places, and 1965 is, in my opinion, really bad.
Congregation is worth getting, but you need to filter out the bad grunge tracks.
I used to love the Afghan Whigs, but Greg Dulli was always the most indulgent front man I had ever seen. I wanted tracks off Gentlemen and got things like covers of 'the end' by the doors, which i think only gregg dulli enjoyed... i kept going to see them though, and they kept leaving a bad taste in the mouth. Got the impression Greg was really bored with playing most of the time.
Anyone know anything about the band the female singer is ini from (i think it's called) 'my curse' off of gentlemen?
is marcy mays from the band scrawl. they were very good, worth seeking out.
what are they like? Is the music like the track on afghan whigs or completely different?
looked on the net and there seem to be loads of albums by them - any ideas where to start?
but John the Baptish is track 7. I reckon it's great until then but does turn shite towards the end. Gotta love 66 and City Soleil though. Don't be forgetting them!
The bands reformed and have even done the obligitory two new tracks.
Up In It, Congregation, Gentlemen and 1965 are all first class in their own unique ways. Black Love is a notch below but still a belter.
You need to get everything they did really, especially their cover versions from the early 90s... Come See About Me, Mr Superlove, True Love Travels On A Gravel Road, Little Girl Blue... you have a ticket to heaven waiting for you.
The first Twilight Singers album, Twilight, is another unique and very underrated album. Totally fresh set of influences on this and they fucking nailed it! After that the Singers got a bit more predictable but it's all well worth getting with the possible exception of the covers album...
What a band!
is ace!! but i don't really know anything about them. when i was younger i used to put that cd on and just sit around with the lights out smoking in my room.
i should get everything.
gonna get 1965 next and take it from there.
